HELLO MY LOVES!!!

There are four FREE videos to this phase of the series, all posted here below!

You’ll see me take the figure (from Sketching the Fashion Figure):

and use this “paper doll” or croquis as a base to trace garment designs and shapes onto….so that you can focus on the garment design when you don’t feel like freehand drawing a fresh body every time.

(And there’s nothing wrong with doing that, either!!!) It’s just one technique that you can use. Having a variety of techniques in your pocket can spark your creativity and you just might find that a particular technique, like this one, “feels like home” for you. So I hope you’ll try all of them as they come onto the blog and see what you think.
I designed four garments here that all work around a single theme.
I’ll select fabrics and colors for this group soon  and render them in the blog.

There are lots of free demonstrations on the site, subscribe now to stay in the loop!

My premium INTENSIVE fashion design and illustration course package includes your art supply kit and textiles kit with tuition.  It’s a total thrill to watch each designer unfurl their design power over the weeks.  Check it out and SHARE the info!

If you try the technique and like it, or if you have questions or WOULD LIKE SOME FEEDBACK, comment or post your work below!
I will offer feedback or answer questions to the first 10 Tribers to share their sketches here :0)))
I really can’t wait to start a conversation with you.
So let the ideas roll!! I hope you enjoy. Please sketch along while watching!
Love,
Laura
