With the advancement of 3D technologies, such as body scanning, modeling and try-on systems, the realistic visualization of clothes outside shape under textile material properties influenced has become possible. With the body scan system, the 3D body shape can be imported into the virtual environment to serve as the avatar in the simulation which provides fitting and shaping information including the fabric properties' indicators. While distinct advantages of 3D technologies for improving clothes design and pattern making process, there are significant areas of challenge. Although the maturing clothing industry emphasis more on fit and fabric characteristics for 3D try-on module, to predict the shape of clothes around each body is very difficult to achieve as it has been proved. In our study, the 3D shape obtained from the woman bodies and dresses that made from 3 kinds of fabrics were obtained by the body scanners. Through the dividing of the female torso into 6 sections from bust level to hip level, the volumetric air gaps between the body and dress were calculated to model and analyze the relations existing in "body-dress" system between the body sizes, pattern block indexes, and fabrics properties. The strong equations established by regression analysis include the fabrics properties' indicators tested by the KES-FB system and the volumetric ease. Thus the legitimately prediction for outside shape of female dress in the "body-dress" system is realizable through testing physical and mechanical properties of fabric by the KEF-S devices.
