Dress Sketches For Beginners

Posted : admin On 1/2/2022

Fashion Sketches A fashion sketches consists of the figurative fashion drawing of a slightly exaggerated, idealized and stylized human figure (male or female) along with the clothes and accessories adorning it. You can start with short gown sketches. Well, actually the length of the dress is not a matter at all as the techniques are more or less the same. However, as most of women’s dresses are usually short, so I think it will be better if right now we focus more on sketching short gowns. To begin, you can buy some books about how to draw a dress.


1. Drag a model from the model library.

Open the model library on the left of the canvas, and drag and drop a model. You can also use models from the built-in fashion design examples or draw a new one on your own.

2. Sketch out the clothes outline upon the model using the drawing tools.

Switch to Symbols menu, and you will see a set of drawing tools containing 'Pencil Tool', 'Pen Tool', 'Move Anchor', 'Add Anchor', 'Delete Anchor', 'Convert Anchor', and more. It will take you a few minutes to get familiar with these tools. You can always turn to the Dynamic Help on the right side of the canvas.

4. Add more patterns and embellishments.

The biggest advantage of EdrawMax is its simplicity. As you see from the following picture, it has a rather straightforward interface that resembles Microsoft programs. You can start to use it even as a beginner, as we have provided user guides in the software.


On the left of the drawing canvas, there are libraries of models and design samples to use. A set of sketching tools under Symbol tab help you draft out any shape you want; and with rich color fill options, you can visualize all your design ideas.

Hundreds of fashion design examples available in the program. You can find men suit design, kids fashion design and women fashion design examples.
