About This Class

This class is a follow up to Adobe Illustrator for Fashion (CAD I): Introduction to Garment Flats. In this class I'll teach you the technical design detailing you’ll need to create professional-grade garment flats in Illustrator, including how to add construction details like darts and hems; how to add colors, patterns and textures to your flats; and how to add advanced fitting techniques like draping and shaping. 

Creating garment flats in Adobe Illustrator is a foundational fashion design skill. Garment flats are how you’ll communicate your fashion ideas to pattern-makers, technical designers, merchandisers, or manufacturers. You’ll also need them for creating tech packs or fashion design portfolios.

What You'll Learn

In this class you’ll learn how to take a basic garment flat and add all the necessary details. We'll cover:

  • Construction Details. How to draw stitches, darts, hems, trims, buttons and zippers.

  • Coloring Details. How to add color to your flats in Adobe Illustrator. 

  • Pattern-Making. How to create swatches to communicate various textures and patterns.

  • Fitting Details. How to add draping and shaping techniques to your flats in Adobe Illustrator.

What You'll Do

You'll be able to apply these skills immediately to your own project: create a high detailed set of garment flats you can share with your classmates for feedback. Looking to get your fashion design produced? Submit your design for funding on Betabrand!
