I have a bit of a confession to make. Despite going to design school and having taken lots of art classes, I am not confident in my sketching skills. Especially fashion sketching. Granted, I’ve never studied fashion drawing specifically. But still. Shouldn’t I just be really good at drawing clothing? I want to be really good at drawing the clothing ideas I have in my head but they usually turn out looking like lopsided lumps.
But here’s the thing. Drawing and sketching takes practice. And most of the time I’d rather be sewing. So, I’ve been satisfied with my lumpy drawings as long as I can record my ideas and get to sewing.
