Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw clothes' outlines. So basically when you draw clothes' outlines you just do the outline of clothes and let's see here, what should we do. We're going to do a shirt here with a cuff on it. So I'm doing a wavy sleeve and then here again, wavy and then a cuff at the bottom, more waviness. The collar is, this is the sleeve. The collar is up here, again wavy. So there's a shirt. Now let's do pants. Again here's the waist of the pants and then you have the pants that go down, the hem at the legs, up, down, these are both straight lines. Notice how, you know clothes have free flowing. They're moving objects, they're not, you know unless you put a bunch of glue on it and make it stiff, clothes are always going to have kind of looser lines. So don't be afraid to draw with loose lines. Okay, here is going to be a skirt, it's a paneled skirt so I'm doing some straighter lines and then up here imagine elastic at the waist. If there is we can make a kind of jagged line there. Skirt pants, let's do a hat. I know this is an accessory but it's always fun to do a cap. You can do this more rounded. What else do we have? Let's do a dress. You know I have a friend who likes really puffy sleeves so let's do some really puffy sleeves in honor of my friend, Holly. Alright, and then we're just going to do a simple dress, again really puffy sleeves and that would be quite an interesting dress to wear. And again one last dress, let's do a strapless, tighter up top, comes out at the bottom. Alright, so there are some clothes' outlines. Enjoy.
