Go out and find images that will help guide you in the draping process. As a draping novice, I found a picture of a bodice that was similar to the bodice I wanted to create for the gown I'm making. This picture helped me tons when I got frustrated with the fabric. Look at how the fabric folds, look at the fabric's direction. Does it stay close to the body or flow freely away? Does it have a lot of texture or is it more fluid? Take these qualities into account for your own creation.
