Through my years of sewing clothes both for myself and to sell, I've developed a simple way to create digital images of dresses and other garments. This allows me to take a photo of a garment I made and use it as the basis of a digital line drawing that I can then use to experiment with fabric layout adding embellishments, etc. It's also been a great tool to use to show customers a simulation of how a garment will look if made with fabric other than shown in a photo of an actual garment. Note: I use Paint Shop Pro v5 as my graphic software but this should work with other software that allows you to create images in layers. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Using layers in graphics software

I’ve been sewing for 35+ years and have enjoyed trying many new techniques along the way. I enjoy writing eBooks that work for most levels of sewists, from confident beginner to advanced.
