Hey, did you know anyone can learn how to draw? On the first day of my Fashion Sketching course, we all drew our best fashion figure. Here's mine:
|Study in shading structured garments|
|Practice rendering cable knit sweater and ostrich leather skirt.|
|Homework (rendering textured garments) with photo reference from Prada Fall 2015|
Here are the reference photos, from the Prada runway show:
Having spent the majority of my post-teen years immersed in science and education, it was so enjoyable to take this class. Homework was fun! How I wish there was an advanced class!
I have been sewing a tiny bit (black cigarette-style pants and the start of a vintage-pattern dress), but it's been slow going (and clearly not documented!). Between this drawing class, my own teaching load, and an online teaching certification course, I haven't had loads of time to spend at the sewing machine. But summer is coming soon!
