Computer systems allow making two dimensional as well as three dimensional product illustrations and visualizations (D'Apuzzo, 2009; Lectra, 2009) . It is possible to create computer aided garment constructions, as well as gradations, and create a virtual first pattern of the model -such computer aided operations significantly decrease the time consumption and cost necessary to design a product. The costs of the product itself can be calculated with the help of the product management systems

Although computer systems significantly facilitate the development of a product, the knowledge and skill of the user are still very important. One of the most important garment creation stages is constructing. Constructing is the reproduction of a spatial model (clothing) on a plane (construction); this transformation has to be reflexive when joining the parts of the construction a garment is originated. The creation of the drafts of the construction is the most complicated and responsible stage of garment designing, because a non-existent complicated spatial shape www.intechopen.com Applications of Virtual Reality 50 product surface layout has to be created (drawn) (Vilumsone, 1993; Koblakova, 1988) . One of the most topical problems in garment designing has always been the search of garment designing methods scientifically reasoned, precise and as little as possible time and labour consuming. Several factors depend on a precise development of garment surface layoutmaterial expenditure, garment set quality, labour intensity level, the aesthetical and hygienic characteristics of the finished product.
