Abstract

During the process of design of children's clothing, it is important to consider the activities of each age group, dressing and undressing, clothing functionality and usability, as well as their body shape, anthropometric characteristics and ergonomic needs. It was from the user-focused design that this work was developed. The lack of research on children's clothing, sizing and main biotypes, allowed the creation and construction of an industrial technical mannequin, as a result of an anthropometric study, representing the children of one of the main identified groups, during a Clusters Analysis of Portuguese children aged between four and nine years.

Keywords: Draping dummy, Anthropometry, Garment Sizing
