How to sketch a bra and brief

how to sketch a bra and brief

When I first started designing my drawings failed me, my head to my hand refused to co-operate with what I was envisioning, and a time before I was trained in CAD, I found it really hard going. I wanted to know how to draw lingerie. At the time there was only really fashion templates and how to draw fashion drawings around.

It was only by practising that I found my style of sketch and found that I could translate to a graphic designer or sample machinist what I wanted to be reproduced. If you are wanting help with drawing lingerie; this book has twelve templates for you to use, either to sketch by hand or by computer, and by having all your templates in size proportion, it means you can concentrate on your designs rather than the outlines. Each template shows a hand-drawn sketch example and a CAD example.

Remember it’s only by practising will you find your own true style of sketching. Keep going and don’t be dismayed if you’re not producing the work you want to at the start.
