PROPORTION
 
Proportion is the comparative relationship of distances, sizes, amounts,
degrees or parts. Proportion operates on three levels: 1. within the garment,
2. among the garment parts and 3. between the garment and the body.
   1. The arrangement of space, which includes the distances between and
       sizes of spaces within the garment, among garment parts, between the
       garment and the body, and between the body and the environment,
       complements the design of the garment and the size and shape of the
       wearer.
   2. The position of lines within the garment creates a compatible
       proportion that complements the design of the garment and the size
       and shape of the wearer.
   3. The size of the shapes created by the position of the lines is
       compatible with the design of the garment and the size and shape of
       the wearer.
   4. The color, texture and pattern of the garment parts are in proportion to
       the design of the garment and the size and shape of the wearer.
