Make hand-drawn technical garment drawings to scale with professional tips and tricks. Discover how to create sketches that highlight dimension and construction details.
Create accurate, proportional garment line sketches with technical drawing for fashion techniques. Parsons School of Design fashion instructor Laura Volpintesta will teach you how to add depth, volume and detail to clothing sketches to aid in your design, patternmaking and construction process. Build your skills as you draw the foundations for shirts, jackets, skirts, pants and more. Create your designs using the provided body templates and learn to convey volume and construction specifics with line weight. Start sketching a simple shift dress and pair of pants. Then, stretch your techniques with a classic shirt drawing, featuring armholes, seam lines and sleeves. Move on to a sophisticated tailored jacket, and take your details to the next level of style by drawing pleats, ruffles and cascades. Finally, complete your drawings like a professional with finishing details such as zippers, fly fronts, pockets and cuffs.
