Summary

Fashion Flats and Technical Drawing is a step-by-step workbook that introduces technical drawing and flat sketching skills-balancing creative drawing techniques with technical precision. Including more than 500 illustrations of hand-drawn and CAD flats and 100 photos of muslin garment samples, the book covers a large range of garments and construction details used throughout the design process to turn technical sketches from concepts into reality. Abling and DaCosta cover basic design construction elements such as darts, gathers, trims and other draped garment details and essential fashion styles for skirts, tops, dresses, pants, jackets and coats. Original illustrations show front-view and back-view flats, plus select side-view and 3/4-view flats and variations for menswear and childrenswear. The final chapter examines the presentation of flats as a collection in a design portfolio.
