How to Draw Clothing Patterns and Prints

Draw stripes and more stripes.

Who doesn’t own a striped shirt or a striped tie or a striped pair of socks? Most people choose to wear stripes that run on the vertical because they’re more slimming, but when drawing a fashion figure, your stripes can go any way you choose. And don’t forget about diagonal stripes, which can add a fun feel to casual pieces, like a skirt.

To draw a woman in a jean mini skirt and striped tights, draw the bottom half of a fashion figure of a woman. Map out a jean mini skirt. Draw in stripes, making sure the lines are curving upward or downward. When coloring in the stripe, leave a little white to add dimension to the fabric.
