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.

The first technical sketch we were required to draw were a pair of shorts. I drew a pair of high waisted shorts from my favourite designer, Isabel Marant. I'll admit that it took me quite a few times of drawing shorts to achieve an end product that I was happy with. I learnt that reducing the stroke weight when drawing small details such as topstitching makes for a more realistic technical sketch.
