Hi, I'm Rosalie, and I'm an artist. And, I'm going to show you how to draw fashion ruching. Ruching is, like, gathering up fabric, and it happens a lot of the time in, like, womens wear, like, dresses. I'm going to draw a female torso, and she's going to have an example of ruching, ruched dress. So, I'm just drawing in the dress first, the dress shape, just a simple sort of minidress, I'd say it's like that. And then, I'm going to sort of, like, lightly divide it into thirds like this. And then, that's just sort of a guideline. And, the ruching is - it's like the fabric is gathered and draped. So, these are folds of fabric that I'm drawing with these curving lines. And, that's one panel - the side there. And then, the center. I'm just using these dividing lines as sort of guide, but this is just the same thing but straight in the front. Just ruching. It's just gathered and draped fabric, and it adds interest to a garment, and when strategically placed, it's very flattering and elegant, so, as you can see. So, this dress is ruched. There - messed that up a little - here are her legs, and her arms. And, let's put some sleeves on too, so, and they're also ruched, sort of dropped sleeve there. So, you can see that that's how you draw fashion ruching.
