Adobe Illustrator for Fashion Design Drawing Flats


Hello Designistas, welcome to Encoder Fashion, Rose. And today, I’m going to share with you tips and trick on how to
use Adobe Illustrator CC to draw a simple top. Now, I’m going to switch to my screen so
I can demonstrate how to do it. Are you with me? Let’s do it.
Okay, so I’m going to open my Adobe illustrator, then, select create new select print and then click create so
I’m going to import my fashion flat template so I can use that to draw a simple top by going to file and then Place then I’m going to navigate to my desktop
to get my template my desktop and then here is my template and select template
so down here you will be linked template show import option so be sure to select
template and then click place and here you have your template and by the way
guys I have this template link below you go to my link click on it and then you
can actually fill in your email you will get the high-resolution template and you
can use it however you would like again I’m going to show you guys how to
draw a simple top quick and easy and a long way what the tips and tricks that
I’ve been using as the fashion designer student
so first of all if you come to the right-hand side here you see the layer
let’s do click that might see you I get done to lay a panel I like to grab them
out like that and then I want to name these tall here we have the template or
a log and ready for us to start drawing the top
so again if you guys new to my channel I have earlier video on how to use six
tool that fashion designer must know how to use these tools so you can do to draw
this kind of stuff so let me zoom in a little bit we are going to draw a simple
top okay so use the pen tool click on it and then start right here come right
here and then click one more right here click right here and then the top I’m
going to draw like maybe we side be sure to hit enter okay and I like this drawing to be like no
fill for now so I’m going to Mackey selected when I thought pieces like
something you see this black arrow right here this is right here the left hand
side be sure to select that and then you drag and select the whole thing you can
hit the keyboard forward slash to have no fill or you can come down here right
here just select it to have no fill, oop… I just made a mistake so what happened
when I select this forward slash instead of no feel it gave me no stroke why
because this showed my here above the feel that made that stroke panel is
active so whatever panel whatever tool is
active when you do the action to that part it will eliminate or work on that
panel on that tool so for example I’m going to just control Z okay now I have
my stroke back I’m going to select here on my field now my still active because
I said I got it okay see the different now is still on top of this show if I
Click the stroke again now the stroke on top of the fill so we don’t want to
eliminate stroke but we’ve wanted to eliminate the fill how we do it click on the
fill and then forward slap on your keyboard and now the field is gone
while I’m drawing I want to see the figure on this way okay so I can
manipulate it easier and now I have this select I’m going to just click off to the
peg like that and then I’m going to use this tool right here it’s called an Anchor
point tool okay so now on my fashion flat as you can see you sister the line with
the stroke and no fill okay so come to this tool right here in the point tool
click on it and then we want to just go a little bit because that’s how the
fabric works ok the fabrics Sumter paint shop is pointy

curvy okay have you can occur this love it like that perfect and now what we’re
going to do is we’re gonna just Mikey selected again and go to reflect tool so

rotate tool and reflector you click on it and you come to you see this central
line right here I made that on purpose so it’s easier for us to it’s like one
side to another ok so I just select reflect tool right
now I already have the reflect tool active I’m going to hold down alt and
then click on the center line okay and they think pop up see this final color
