Fashion illustration is not just for high-end haute couture designers. Learning how to sketch clothing allows you to brainstorm and get your ideas on paper before starting a new project. You don’t have to be an artist to sketch–there’s a great two-part sketching tutorial in the Feb/March and upcoming April/May issues of Sew News that really simplifies the process.
Checking out the latest pattern recommendations for your body type is a great way to get started. And to further help you on your sketching quest, today we’re giving away the awesome Fashion Sketchpad from Chronicle Books. It features 420 figure templates in 20 different poses, so you can sketch to your heart’s content!
