The silhouette of women's garment is diversified in its design. In this paper, a new model was developed to predict the silhouette of jacket for the given girth measurements. Sixty-three princess-seam women's jackets with seven styles and nine girth dimensions of each style were produced. Their ease distribution was investigated at bustline, waistline, and hipline, respectively. The widths of the cross-sections for bustline, waistline, and hipline were formulated by multiple linear regressions. Then the silhouette was captured from the ratio of waist width to bust width of a designed jacket, together with that of waist width to hip width.
