This delightful introduction completely demystifies the drawing process. It shows how images can be built up easily, from initial geometric shapes right through to finished models. Susie Hodge includes a good selection of male and female figures of different ages and ethnicities in a range of dramatic poses and funky outfits. Choose between glammed-up young women, trendy teens, sizzlingly smart men, sultry fashionistas and cool kids! Susie uses a helpful two-colour method that clearly shows every line and curve of the step-by-step pictures. Even absolute beginners will find themselves creating great fashion figure drawings when they use this book and there is much to inspire more experienced artists too. An invaluable guide for anyone interested in this subject.

If you, like this reviewer, are a freelance pattern cutter and dressmaker then you need some professional-looking drawings to tempt potential employers. In short, you need to be able to sketch your creations like any other fashion designer and make them look great. Here's how in this book.This is another entry in the series that shows, "in simple steps" how to progress from a few lines to the finished graphite pencil or colored drawing stage. Each step shows the last lines in green with new details added in purple so you can see what is happening and have a go yourself. No words are needed apart from one introductory page, the drawings speak for themselves. Each drawing is in six stages, and although I would prefer one more stage between #4 and #5, anybody with some knowledge of basic drawing ought to be able to work it out. Total beginners might struggle a bit but it is worth having a try with this series. Most likely types of garments are covered, from underwear to casual street wear, outfits for a day at the office or a night on the town. Nor is it just women's clothes as there are several menswear studies as well as children's wear. All the poses are different from serious to playful, giving the designer some ideas as to how to present their work. A useful book that ought to appeal to anybody who designs and makes clothes.

“good book”

I liked the book and the step by step drawing would have preferred a little text to go with it but overall i found the book fairly helpful it gives you space to develop your own style of fashion figures.
