Introducing the BurdaStyle Figure Drawing Templates! Also known as Croquis.

This printable PDF consists of four pages, the first page has a composition of three poses that are meant to have a piece of drawing paper placed overtop and then traced out for fast and easy sketching. The other pages are these three poses separated in pattern planning sheets! They are more faint so you can draw right on top of them, then along side work out the details to bring your sketch to life.

Watch here for a demonstration

Fill your sewing studio of sketches that you drew of the garments you make! Sketching is a great way to flush out design and fabric/color combination ideas. Sketching from a blank sheet of paper is very difficult to do, but if you have a figure to draw or trace on it makes it fun and gets those creative juices flowing!

The planning sheets are great for organizing thoughts, fabrics, pattern changes, and is always good to have by your side when you are creating your garment.

See the other poses here.

    I love the idea of this, but why not create a more inclusive image by leaving off the skin color? I get that the body shape is a little less changeable here because everyone’s body is different, but it seems like the color could at least be omitted.
