Digital 3D technologies are very powerful tools in many fields of application. Apparel industry has been adopting these technologies in order to optimize its design and fabrication processes. Recently, these digital approaches have been applied to try-on stages by using body scanners and are now foreseen for fitting of tailor-made garments. Virtual try-on consists of performing the registration of two 3D models: a human model and a garment model to try-on. Different methods of registration can be used, which have been well described in literature. The precision of the registration depends on the selected method. In the case where the old-fashion tailor-made work is involved, usually the tailor performs manual measurements using a measuring tape directly on the customer. Then a set of measurements is created and the tailor-made garment can be fabricated.
This research explores the use of 3D technologies for performing virtual measurements and try-on. A friendly user 3D manipulation software tool has been developed, which performs virtual measurement using scanned data of the actual body. The set of measurements can be sent to a customer database which includes scanned data and mensuration. A second software tool will be used to perform the try-on for fitting a virtual garment. Different adjustments on the garment are possible by using control points of deformation on the meshed model. The try-on involves the creation of a virtual mannequin based on the customer mensuration.
