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. There are longer, thinner croquis used for fashion illustration, but for the purposes of this How-To we are using a croqui with more realistic proportions because we are drawing ‘flats’. Flats are technical, showing each detail of the garment: seamlines, zippers, buttons, darts, topstitching, etc.
