This How-To will teach you how to use a technical croqui for drawing your flats. “Croqui” is French for sketch, and in the fashion realm ‘croqui’ refers to the female figure we draw clothes over.

Flats are technical, showing each detail of the garment: seamlines, zippers, buttons, darts, topstitching, etc.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
