imagination plays an important part in the art of 
design, it is by no means the only basis upon which 
the designer must work. Just as the train must run 
upon tracks in order to reach its destination, so must 
the costume designer proceed upon definite lines or 
principles to achieve the object he has in view. 
  Some people think they have no imagination, but 
every one of us can be taught to visualize certain 
objects, if we receive proper instruction; and it is the 
aim of this chapter to demonstrate this fact.
