First? you need models to practice from!!!!
(Did you know that this is the single most visited page on my entire website????)
I’m so glad you are hear, and of course, I would love to accompany and support/encourage you on your fashion design journey.
I still can’t believe the way I used to draw models in school, all distorted and stretched out, the way I was taught. Well, I don’t teach the way I learned, I can tell you that!!
As promised, here is a file of plus-size fashion figures for sketching fashion/ fashion model drawing practice,
including a video demonstration from my Freedom Fashion Online course (click for info and registration links) !
I’m also including a croquis that you can trace onto to sketch your own unique, original designs 🙂 Yay!
Honestly, I am working up a larger collection on my pinterestboard for plus size fashion sketch. It includes figures for plus size fashion model drawing as well as great clothes and a range of body shapes for reference and inspiration. Come check it out on pinterest and follow me!
So I’m still researching to keep this post useful. Please comment me with any suggestions or additions.
Are you looking to learn techniques for sketching and designing models and clothes ?
That’s what I teach in my online fashion design program FREEDOM FASHION>> click for info.
These plus size fashion sketch files are predominantly leotard, swim and lingerie images so that we can get our MODEL DRAWING techniques down.
We want to be able to see the body before we start sketching a lot of clothing. Seeing the legs, the hips and shapes, anatomy, and mechanics of the body and pose is extremely helpful. Obviously, sketching from images is the best way to build your skill!
Ultimately, I urge and encourage every designer to develop the flexibility and skill to be able to create the body they want for any project… with the customer in mind.
Despite what so many fashion schools are still teaching, there is no reason to have to stick with one body type. That’s just ridiculous. Create the body that makes sense for your designs. PERIOD. This way, your drawings translate into your beautiful reality.
Remember, the proportions don’t have to change in the length, just adjust your width proportions, although the bust may fall lower on the length proportions than you are used to in the smaller sizes. You can always use these in conjunction with one of my plus size fashion sketch model drawing you tube tutorials to help you out.
HAVE FUN, and let me know what you think !
We can work together to develop your skills and portfolio through my intensive online course 15 week Fashion Semester, check it out. I LOVE helping visionaries unleash their ideas on paper and truly dive deep into the joy of fashion, model drawing, design, and illustration.
