How to Draw Gorgeous Fashion Gowns

Draw the top half of a ball gown.

Draw the front torso of a woman. Using the torso as a guide, draw the gown’s neckline and armhole(s).

To create a strapless dress, draw a slightly curved line or a sweetheart neckline across the chest. For a dramatic ball-gown effect, draw in elbow-length gloves.

For the rest of the gown’s bodice, follow the sides of the model’s torso to draw the side seams, and draw a waist seam across her middle. Create an asymmetrical waist seam in any interesting design by going from the top of one hip to the bottom of the other.

Map out where her legs are going to be. You won’t see the legs, but you want to make sure this lovely lady looks like she’s standing and balanced — she’s probably wearing fancy high heels, and you don’t want her to look like she’s going to tip over!
