The objective of this study was to experiment on women’s pattern making by the anatomy principle using extra large size (XL) which had 4 types: inverted triangle body type, triangle body type, oval body type, and hourglass body type. Four types of fabric: satin, chiffon, silk, and tafta were used for making the pattern of dresses and tailoring long evening dresses. The standard time of making patterns of different dresses was recorded and then statistically analyzed in terms of percentage and mean. The results were that the tailoring of long evening dresses took 22 minutes each, regarding the pattern making; and the dress making from tafta took the shortest time of 351.5 minutes, regarding the sewing.
