Awakening from an afternoon nap, my mind was roaming over a task I took on – a costume for a girl of 17, a large girl. She’s not handy and I have some measurements but I really needed a croquis of her body. Searched the internet and found this:
Now, I am not that computer-smart and I don’t know if this will give me what I want. I need to draw onto
her body shape to decide on an attractive design. Hopefully I can take a photo of her and convert it to a silhouette to use as a croquis.
I have a croquis of myself following THREADS’ instructions of a few years back and it is invaluable. I can draw onto it and immediately tell if the shape is going to be flattering. Am going to send this url to my son (the computer nerd) to see what he says about it. Maybe someone would like to try it?
Also, for fashion artists, take a look at this array of croqui:
