Table 4 Assumptions organized by body component and pattern dimension combinations

From: Exploration of the body–garment relationship theory through the analysis of a sheath dress

Body + pattern#Assumptions
Neck + neck circumference1The thicker the neck, the larger the neck circumference
2A smooth neck-to-shoulder transition will produce a larger neck circumference, while a sharp neck-to-shoulder transition will produce a smaller neck circumference
3The more prominent the collarbone, the smaller the neck circumference will be
Neck + front neck drop4The more forward tilted the neck is in relation to the torso, the longer the front neck drop measurement will be
Shoulder + shoulder seam5The longer the shoulder, the larger the shoulder seam measurement will be
6The softer the shoulder point, the longer the shoulder seam measurement will be
7The farther the shoulder point is outside the bust, high-hip, and thigh widths, the longer the shoulder seam measurement will be
Shoulder + averaged shoulder drop8The more sloped the shoulder, the larger the shoulder drop measurement will be
9The softer the shoulder point, the larger the shoulder drop measurement will be
10The longer the shoulder, the larger the shoulder drop measurement will be
11A smooth neck-to-shoulder transition will produce a larger shoulder drop measurement, while a sharp neck-to-shoulder transition will produce a smaller shoulder drop measurement
Shoulder blade + bodice back waist dart depth12The further the shoulder blade prominence point is from the waist, the larger the bodice back waist dart depth measurement will be
Shoulder blade + bodice back waist dart width13The more prominent the shoulder blade, the larger the bodice back waist dart width measurement will be
14The type of shoulder blade prominence will affect the measurement of the bodice back waist dart width
Shoulder blade + between back waist darts15The wider apart the shoulder blade back prominence points are, the larger the between back waist darts distance measurement will be
Bust + bust dart depth16The fuller the bust, the larger the bust dart depth measurement will be Busts contained within the ribcage will have smaller bust dart depth
17Measurements than busts not contained within the ribcage
Bust + between front waist darts18The wider apart the bust points are, the larger the between front waist darts distance measurement will be
GLBFP + waist circumference19The more indented the waist, the smaller the waist circumference measurement will be
GLBFP + front waist20The type of GLBFP will affect the measurement of the front waist
21Certain types of GLBFPs will extend past the bust, while others will not
GLBFP + skirt front waist dart depth22The lower the GLBFP is aligned, the larger the skirt front waist dart depth measurement will be
GLBFP + skirt front waist dart width23The type of GLBFP will affect the measurement of the skirt front waist dart width
Buttocks + skirt back waist dart depth24The longer and lower the buttocks prominence, the larger the skirt back waist dart depth measurement will be
Buttocks + skirt back waist dart width25The more prominent the buttocks, the larger the skirt back waist dart width measurement will be
GLBSP + skirt curve length26The lower the location of the GLBSP on the body, the longer the curved portion of the skirt side seam will be on the pattern
27The type of prominence will affect the skirt side seam curve measurement
