In this web seminar recording Meg will take you through the process of drawing professional looking technical garment illustration

Description

Do you have Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop installed on your computer, but never or don’t know how to use it? Are you a tech-savvy sewer and aspiring fashion designer? Do you want to bring your hand drawn garment sketches to the next level and computerize them for a more professional look. In this web seminar recording Meg will take 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!

What you’ll learn:

  • Draw technical garment illustrations from scratch using a digital croquis
  • Manipulate the pen tool to draw straight, and curved lines
  • Make Illustrator brushes that simulate sewing machine stitches and construction details
  • Copying your drawing into Photoshop and inserting your scanned fabric swatch
  • Modify existing technical drawings
