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....

Original Dress Designing

Brigandines

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. Study this lesson carefully and apply its principles on original work. Keep a note-book handy in which jot down ideas as they present themselves. 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,...

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...

Introduction

Many young people, who have a desire to draw, are much interested in fashion drawing and wish to take up the subject without any preparatory instruction in art. They thus bring to the study practically no knowledge of fashions and very little knowledge of drawing. Successful instruction for such classes must necessarily follow a very definite and carefully worked-out plan. The first steps must be very simple, and the succeeding steps must follow in a carefully selected order and in easy stages,...

Textures And Detail Work

The representation of textures comes under the general classification of detail work. It requires great accuracy to be a detail artist. Many artists devote their whole time to this type of work. To draw the human figure correctly, and to be able to group figures, should be the aim of all students of fashion drawing but they should be competent to do detail work as well. When filling an order in all its parts, the artist needs to be lamiliar with textures. He must be able to make the drawing for...

Feathers and hats

Brigandines

In this lesson few lines are used, the object being to explain the general direction the lines take. To draw a full feather, many more lines should be added. The student should make a careful study of all drawings of feathers, also of the feathers themselves. The mass of small feathers to make up the whole are confusing, but when one realizes that it is the direction that is important, a few lines of the right kind will give the desired effect. If the feather is soft like those of the ostrich...

Pen and ink lines french wash ben day machine

Renissance Ink Wash Pictures

By this time the student must desire to mk 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...

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...

And Figures

Lesson Shirring Scallops Lacing Etc

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 m 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 them...

The Tucked Skirt

Gathering Skirt Technical Drawing

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...

How Draw Side View Skirt

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...
