For designing of footwears, registration of footprints and measurements of 10 items relating to feet size have been made of 225 male and 279 female children ranging from three to six in age. The body weight and stature as well as plantar arch form have also been measured. The properties of their feet form have been discussed on the basis of measured data. The results are as fllows: (1) The coefficient of correlation between stature and each item of length about a foot as well as between weight and each item of girth shows high values. (2) The mean values of ball joint girth, instep girth, instep height, foot length and breadth of male children are significantly higher than those of female in every age group at an interval of 6 months. (3) The ratios of each item of foot to stature and the ratios of the girth and breadth of foot to foot length decrease gradually with age in both sexes and those ratios of male are higher than those of female. (4) The frequency of the wide-angle great toe is higher in the 5-6 age group than in the 3-5 age group, which means that the deformation of the toe is advanced in a later stage. (5) The flat type of plantars is found 56.2% in 3 years old children, but this type decreases gradually with age and is found 11.8% in the case of 6 years old children.
In this article, we try to find out how the resins, pressed and melted, of one-sided non-woven adhesive interlinings become solid under the cooling condition after having been pressed, and whether the solidifying resins affect the peeling strength. For this experiment, we used, four kinds of fabrics-cotton-sheeting, wool-tropical and two sorts of wool-flano-and four kinds of one-sided non-woven dot-typed adhesive interlinings-two sorts of chemical bond's non-woven-typed and two sorts of thermo print's non-woven-typed. In addition, we inspected how the fabric adhere to interlinings. The results are summarized as follows: 1) In regard with the change of Glue Line Temparature for 20 seconds right after adhered, the temparature decreased greatly because of the cooling of the initial vacuum. 2) In the case of being not given vacuum, the peeling strength was greater when left as it was, as compared with taken away from the press table. 3) In the case of being given vacuum, the peeling strength was maximum when the vacuum time was between 10 and 15 seconds.
Fifty-five subjects of male and female children ranging from three to four and half years old have been measured. These subjects had already been measured in 1984 and reported in Part 1. The growth of feet during two-year period have been discussed and reported as follows: (1) The mean values of growth of 2 years' period for the foot, stature and weight are constant and no significant difference has been found between males and females or among any age-groups of three to six. (2) The average rates of growth of 2 years' period in age en bloc were 10.1% in males and 11.5% in females for ball joint girth, 9.9% in males and 9.8% in females for instep girth, 14.0% in males and 16.1% in females for instep height, 9.1% in males and 9.8% in females for foot length, 8.4% in males and 7.8% in females for foot breadth, 7.1% in males and 8.5% in females for minimum leg girth. (3) In the ratios of each measurement of the foot to stature, the ratio of instep height to stature is constant but the others decrease gradually with age in both sexes. (4) In the ratios of each measurement of the foot to foot length, the ratio of instep height to foot length increases with age but the others are constant. (5) The ratios of each measurement of the foot to weight decrease distinctly, which means that increase of weight is rapid compared with foot growth.
In order to investigate the interaction between pattern and colour in clothing, an analysis was made of image effect in two-colour striped patterns. Average-sized models (160 cm×50 kg) were clothed in basic one-piece dresses with striped patterns consisting of stripes and white spaces in two colours, and samples were made by using a colour simulator. The Results were then analyzed. In the present study an analysis was made of the fashion aspect of the‘appearance’ of clothing by using fashion image terms in addition to basic image adjective pairs. The SD method was used to derive values, and these values were then subjected to factor analysis. The results showed that warm-colour pairs produced‘active’, ‘excitable’, ‘warm’, ‘fat’, images. On the other hand, cool-colour-pairs produced strong images which suggest such adjectives as‘cute’, ‘feminine’, ‘adult’, ‘formal’, ‘cool’, ‘thin’, . The combination of neuter colours produced images suggestive of adjectives such as‘static’, ‘calm’, and‘not cute’, ‘not feminine’. As far as the broad vertical stripe pattern was concerned, it produced‘active’, ‘excitable’, images; the broad horizantal stripe pattern produced‘not cute’, ‘not feminine’, and‘cool’, ‘slim’, images. The narrow vertical stripe pattern produced‘static’, ‘calm’, ‘adult’, ‘formal’, ‘warm’, ‘fat’, images. In addition, the narrow vertical stripe pattern produced‘cute’, ‘feminine’, images.
Life environment is a significant factor of defining image of garments. In this report, the image of garments in life environments was investigated. A computer graphics was used to compound 5 silhouette-factors, 8 color-factors and 5 environmentfactors. Total 200 data were evaluated with SD method, factor analysis and parallel factors factor analysis. The results are summarized as follows; The image of garments in life environments is composed of four factors; potency, evaluation, activity, and function. Potency factor is enhanced by purpleness, yellowness, sports style, torso line, and the street. Evaluative factor is enhanced by blackness, straight line, and the class room. Activity factor is enhanced by orangeness, greenness, sports style, and the street. Functional factor is enhanced by blackness, sports style, and living room.
