Abstract [sv]

Denna studie är en kandidatuppsats i designteknik. Bakgrunden till arbetet är en fältstudie som genomfördes våren 2019. Fältstudien spenderades på ett modeföretag, specifikt på en avdelning som tar fram damkläder. Under den tiden jobbade avdelningen med att ta fram plagg för kvinnor som är kortare än genomsnittet. Det gav upphov till idén att undersöka området närmare eftersom det är stor efterfrågan på dessa specialstorlekar. Syftet med studien är att identifiera skillnader i mått och passform mellan en storlek för medellånga jämfört med en kortare storleksserie, samt att analysera marknadens utbud av nämnda specialstorlek. I arbetet med studien togs tre grundmönster för blus fram. Första grundmönstret utgick från en standardmåttlista för en genomsnittslängd. De andra två konstruerades för kvinnor under genomsnittslängd. Den ena togs fram efter marknadens kroppsmått och den andra utifrån en standardmåttlista under medellängd, för att kunna påvisa differenser i passform. Därefter verifierades passformen genom avprovning på personer under genomsnittslängd. Resultatet efter avprovningarna visade att grundmönstret skapat efter standardmåttlistan hade bättre passform än marknadens mönster.

Abstract [en]

This report is a bachelor essay in garment technology. The background for this report is a field study that took place during spring 2019. The field study was carried out at a fashion company, specifically at a department that produces women’s clothes. During that period the department was in the process of creating garments for women of short stature. That sparked the idea to investigate the field a bit closer, due to the big demand for well fitted garments among shorter women. The aim of the study is to identify differences in fit between a size for women of average height and women of shorter stature, and to analyze the market’s assortment of shorter sizes. In this study three basic patterns were constructed. The first pattern was created from a standard measurement chart for women of average height. The other two was constructed for shorter women. One was developed according to the market’s body measurements and the other based on a standard measurement chart for women below average height, to be able to determine differences in fit. The fit was then verified through fittings on models of shorter stature. The result showed that the pattern developed from a standard measurement chart had a better fit than the pattern based on the market’s body measurements.
