English term or phrase:fullness
"Making a pattern means keeping a balance between the designer's instructions and the basic technical rules and constraints of pattern making, in particular, fullness (garment measurements are never the same as actual body measurements because although they must follow the body's general shape, they must allow for breathing and movement), contouring (the way a piece is cut from the fabric determines whether there will be unintended folds in the garment) and proportions (taking account of the constraints of fullness and con-touring, the pattern designer obviously needs to produce the style the designer wanted)."
