Are you a tech-saavy sewer and aspiring fashion designer? Learn how to bring your hand drawn garment sketches to the next level and computerize them for a more professional look.
On Monday, Nov. 25th, we’re bringing back one of our most-loved web seminars: How to Draw Garment Technical Drawings in Adobe Illustrator presented by the fabulous Meg Healy.
In Monday’s live web seminar, Meg will guide you through the process of drawing professional looking technical garment illustration using Adobe Illustrator. You will learn how to use the pen tool and different brushes to simulate machine stitches.
Have a fabric already but not sure how it will look exactly in your garment? You will also learn to copy your newly drawn technical drawings into Adobe Photoshop, scan your fabric into the computer and insert into your design! You can even take existing technical from BurdaStyle.com patterns and add style lines, and modify the details before you start to sew. This is a handy skill to have when developing new patterns, or testing out fabric/color combinations. Think of all the possibilities!
Can’t attend? No problem, each registrant receives a recording of the event.
What You’ll Learn:
- How to draw technical garment illustrations from scratch using a digital croquis
- How to manipulate the pen tool to draw straight, and curved lines
- How to make Illustrator brushes that simulate sewing machine stitches and construction details
- How to copy your drawing into Photoshop and inserting your scanned fabric swatch
- How to modify existing technical drawings
Have a question about a specific technique? There will be a Q&A session at the end of the web seminar where you can ask Meg any questions you have, and no question goes unanswered!
Can’t attend the live web seminar? Everyone who registers will receive a recording of the event, any downloads or resources referenced during the web seminar, and will have the ability to ask any follow-up questions.
Hope to see you all there!
