Hi, my name is Erick. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw pleats on the waist of a dress. Okay let's just start out by drawing that dress which draw some straps, have this come out, do that and let's have this portion come down and let's see the waist is going to be about in here so let's bring this down and bring it down over here. Okay let's just show that it's going to like that at the bottom. Now the pleats are actually just going to be little stitches following the contour here and then they are going to extend into longer folds and you can just fill that in and just draw those folds coming down. There we go, bring this down and this one up, bring this down. There we go. And this is a little messy here and here and you can just show it wrapping around there. Alright and that is how you draw pleats at the waist of a dress.
