Plaids Stripi

By this time the student should be proficient in drawing dresses, and if this is the case, plaids, stripes and figures will seem very easy. Around Fig. U will be seen many examples of plaids, but the student should pay no attention to them until the principle of all plaids is understood. It is assumed that the student has drawn the outline of Fig. U, and that a very good bottom line has been secured. If not, re-draw the outline before attempting to plaid it. Suppose it is desired to stripe this...

How Draw Ruffled Skirts

STUDENT'S MANUAL OF FASHION DRAWING LESSON IV curve out, the goods being gathered in at the top. The form is narrower where sewed on than at the bottom. Notice the under part of this set form, the lines being somewhat the i ame as the lines of an over-skirt. In between these set forms the line of the bottom of the ruffle waves in and out, the set form being nearer to you than the wavy part. All lines for the fullness must look as if they were pulled together at the top of the ruffle. The lines...

And Figures

The stripes near the bottom follow the bottom line of the dress (as did the hem and tuck), going in and out of the fullness. They continue to do this, gradually changing until, at the waist, they follow the waist line. Be particular to make the stripes go in and out of the fullness, and where the fullness stops, go around the skirt in good even plaids. When placing the stripes around, do not allow them to touch XX on the top, thus leaving a high light on top of the fold, but underneath draw...

The Large Coat

A form in a large coat has the appearance of being somewhat stouter than a form in just a dress, but in reality it is the coat that gives this effect. Draw the form the same size as for a dress. Place the coat upon it according to previous instructions, but let the coat touch the form on the shoulders, chest, and bust only. Elsewhere it hangs well away from the form, as designated by the guide lines seen through the coat. As the collar is high, standing well up at the back of the neck, the near...

The Sidfplaited Skirt

Lessons III and IV are devoted to skirts and it will be well for the student to thoroughly master these, as any part slurred over will cause trouble later on. Fig. F is a combination of a side-plaited and a box-plaited skirt. The student is expected to draw two skirls and not comMne them as done on the lesson plate. Begin with the side-plaited skirt (Fig. F which is a full front view). Draw the form, being sure to make a graceful ellipse at the top, and after placing the belt as directed in...

The Tucked Skirt

In Lesson IV only the bottom of the tucked skirt (Fig. K) is illustrated, but for practice and much practice is required on each lesson draw a complete skirt form with a graceful ellipse at the top, not showing too much of the back of the ellipse, then place as many XX's as you think will look well. In the figure we have two on the near side and one on the far side (the skirt being a three-quarter view). After getting a good bottom line, place the tucks on the skirt according to directions. We...

The Head And Hair

Lessons XIII and XIV should be studied together, as they bear upon the same subject, heads. By studying and applying the principles of these lessons, the student will be able to use a picture as a model and from it construct an original head. You will 6nd in fashion figures many types of faces, some pretty and some freaky many business houses preferring the first type wl'le others prefer the second. Alter you have learned to draw a normal head with normal features, it is suggested that you try...

To make a sketu

To make a sketch directly from the dress seems a very difficult problem to the inexperienced art student and it would be if an attempt were made to draw it as one would draw a flower or a vase. But if the student has thoroughly mastered all previous lessons and applies them as this lesson is studied, she will have no difficulty in sketching any costume in a short space of time. In sketching a dress directly from the model, proceed as follows Let us imagine that we are viewing the dress itself...

If the student has been successful with the front figure and remembers its proportions and how to start the drawing, he will be somewhat at home when studying this lesson. As in Lesson XVII, the figure is not nude but ready for a garment, as are also the figures in Lesson XXIV and Lesson XXV. Draw fig. 1 and place Fig. 2 on it. This is a three-quarter back view, the figure measuring seven and three-quarter heads high. In the back figure, the legs join the body below the middle and the...

Illustrating A Costume

Oak Tree Costume

If the student is able to dress up the dummy form and understands the figure in the last lessons, he will have no difficulty in understanding this lesson. This figure is slightly different from the last one as it is walking. As the weight is divided equally between the feet, the line of support falls between them. The figure may have the legs crossed in walking and the weight be solely on one foot. Be careful to poise the figure correctly. When drawing a figure with the legs crossed, do not...

Lesson I The Dress Form

Fashion Dress Drawing Manga

In taking up this lesson the student must remember that a good form is the foundation for all succeeding lessons. No matter how pretty a dress or design is, if it is placed on a dumpy figure, it will have no style whatever. In this lesson we first learn how to draw a layout for the form, which consists of two ovals, Fig. A, then how to place the form on this layout. In the next lesson we dress the same form in a very simple dress. A form must have good proportion and style. A form leaning...

Fashion Outlines For Drawings

Costume design is a very interesting subject and is an art in itself. If one can draw fashions correctly, he can learn to create them.

The student should also read and study the fashion papers. He must become familiar with the names of principal designers and their work, as for example Callot, Jenny, Ch ruit, Lavin, Paquin, Poiret, Drecoll, Premet,...

Collar Fashion Drawing

Collar 7 happens to be more of a cape effect than a collar. It hangs well down over the shoulders, rippling slightly at the bottom. Note the XX lines, the under surface of the goods, and where the cape fits around the sleeve. Note all the guide lines around the neck, as the collar must have the appearance of going around the neck at the same height. In the deep pointed girdle, the lines are drawn as explained in Fig. Q. The bottom line follows the waist line, and the top, on the near side,...

Parasols Drawing

Parasol are very interesting and they are not hard to draw if one understands their formation Begin with Fig. 1. Place the stick through the ellipse at a right angle to it. The stick must be in the middle and be continuous where it goes through the silk. If you show much of the outside, show but little of the inner part. The less you observe of the top of the parasol, the more you see of the inside, Fig. 4, and the less of the short end of the stick. Draw layout, Fig. 1, and place Fig. 2 on it....

Watch the direction of the hues to obtain this effect. At the bottom of the page is illustrated a broad ribbon run through holes. Note the guide lines at the top and bottom of the holes. All holes must be the same size, evenly spaced, and not drawn too near the edge of banding. If the ribbon is wide, it will bulge at the top and bottom, causing the lines to take a rounding shape instead of being straight like the openings. A ribbon the width of the holes will...

By this time the student must desire to ink in a drawing. Ink work is extremely interesting, but it requires much practice. You may be able to render a nice drawing in pencil and be afraid to touch your pen to it. Many feel this way, and many good drawings have been spoiled because the student did not practice the lines on a separate piece of paper. The very idea that you are afraid will cause your hand to be unsteady, and a very steady hand is required. The idea is not to draw just an ink line...

Q is shown not only a waist but a sash as well. First draw the waist, then the sash. The yoke curves slightly to follow the form, the lines for the yoke being directly opposite each other. Be careful to make the yoke fit into the top of the sleeve and not hung over like a collar. Thi may seem unnecessary advice, but students have made this mistake. The fullness falls from the yoke, the main lines follow ing the form, although a few of the smaller ones may take the opposite direction....
