In week 6 class we also drew a fashion accessory. I based my technical sketch off a Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet. I own this wallet so I was able to view it from all angles and draw the details correctly.


For week 6 we were required to draw knitwear. We were taught how to create a cable-knit repeat and ribbing. I found this aspect challenging as its hard to make a pattern repeat seamlessly. I decided to draw a Stella McCartney cable-knit skirt rather than the typical jumper or cardigan, however I was still able to incorporate the ribbing detail in the waist and hem of the skirt.

My technical sketch is based off a blazer from Abercrombie & Fitch. Drawing the lapels and getting the right shape of the blazer was a bit tricky. I also experimented with adding a drop shadow which I think makes it come off the page more. Overall I feel that I've improved a lot with using the pen tool on Adobe Illustrator.

For week 4 we were taught how to draw shirt technical sketches and make a stripe and polka dot repeat. I made a basic black and white striped repeat and applied it to my shirt. I am pretty happy with the end result.

My dress technical sketch is of a Zimmermann dress. I thought it was interesting because of the panel lines and drape of the skirt. It has a concealed zip closure at the back so I didn't have to use the zipper brush.


In week 3 class we learnt how to make a zipper brush. I applied the zipper brush to my technical sketch of a Sandro skirt.
