About This Class

Creating a garment flat in Adobe Illustrator is the most foundational skill a fashion designer needs to know. A garment flat is a basic digital sketch that displays a garment as if it were laid "flat". It's used to communicate your design idea technically - whether that's to a pattern-maker, technical designer, merchandiser, or manufacturer. Garment flats are also a must-have in any tech pack or fashion design portfolio.

What You'll Learn

In this class I'm going to teach you all the techniques, tips and tricks I wish I knew as a beginner. We'll cover:

  • Illustrator Tools. How to use pen and circle tools needed to create a garment flat.

  • Basic Shapes. How to create the lines and curves that make up a garment flat.

  • Flats for Tops. A more detailed understanding of creating garment flats for tops.

  • Flats for Bottoms. A more detailed understanding of creating garment flats for bottoms.

What You'll Do

You'll be able to apply these skills immediately to your own project: creating a 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


Class Outline

  • Trailer. Graphic designer Mickaela Roxas will take you through Adobe Illustrator 101, so you can design your own garment flat. In her online fashion design course, you’ll learn design essentials and all the techniques, tips, and tricks that Mickaela wishes she’d known as a beginner.
  • Getting started with Illustrator. Beginning with the basics, Mickaela will show you how to set up a new document in Adobe Illustrator, modify your art board, and create multiple boards to work from.
  • Selection tool & creating shapes. Beginning with shape tools, Mickaela will introduce you to the tools you’ll need for your fashion design assignment. You’ll learn how to size shapes and work with both selection and direct selection tools.
  • Basic coloring and arrangement. Using the shapes you created in the last lesson, you’ll experiment with outlines and fill colors. Overall, you’ll learn how shapes respond to different commands in Illustrator.
  • Unit 1 deliverable. With everything you’ve learned so far, you’ll be able to create a simple item by using only the shape tools. Mickaela will demonstrate by creating a couple of designs of her ownby copying, pasting, coloring, and rotating shapes.
  • Unit 2.1: Introducing the pen tool. By using the pen tool, you’ll learn how to create lines and closed shapes. You’ll also explore the tool’s adding and subtracting functions, and you’ll discover how to create curves by converting anchor points.
  • Unit 2.2: Align and distribution. After creating a series of scattered shapes, you’ll learn how to align them in different places and formations on your art board. Mickaela will explain how the align tool helps create patterns while you’re working in fashion and design.
  • Unit 2.3: Reflect and grouping. The reflect tool lets you easily create symmetrical shapes. You’ll see why it’s so widely used to design fashion in Illustrator.
  • Unit 3.1: The mirroring technique: parts 1 & 2. Now it’s time to start designing your garment flat. On a croquis (AKA flat mannequin) template, you’ll begin with the neckline, and work your way down to the shoulders, the torso, and finally the shirtsleeves. Mickaela will make this design on just one half of the body, before copying and flipping it onto the other. This tactic will ensure that her design remains perfectly symmetrical.
  • Unit 3.3: Going further – long-sleeve button-down shirt parts 1 & 2. You’ll see the design differences between button-down and button-free garment flats. Mickaela will show you how to make pockets by using the shape and pen tools, and you’ll get your deliverable for this unit: Create five different shirts in black and white.
  • Unit 4.1: Designing flats for bottoms part 1. You can apply much of what you learned by making garment flats for tops while you’re creating bottoms. By designing a garment flat for a skirt, you’ll learn how to make slash pockets.
  • Unit 4.2: Designing flats for bottoms part 2. Mickaela will explain how you can use techniques for designing button-down shirt flats to design a pair of pants. At the close of this fashion design course, you’ll be able to design garment flats for an entire outfit.

2. Getting Started With Illustrator: - Hey, - guys, - how you doing? - It's Mickey from being a brand here to begin Unit one of learning Adobe Illustrator for - fashion with learning Adobe Illustrator So if you don't have Adobe Illustrator, - this is how you get it. - You go to creative dot adobe dot com You sign up for the creative cloud if you already - don't have and counting to sign in and you will have access to all of the adobe Sweet. - So you have, - like, - illustrator photo shop in design. - Uh, - have what have you whatever design program that they have and you condone download all of - them and download the free 30 day trial. - Um, - but I suggest that you buy a negotiator because you're gonna find that you're gonna love it - , - and it's gonna be a lot of fun. - And it would be no fun if you couldn't design anymore after 30 days. - So once you have the program, - open it up and this is what you'll see. - Or you might see a little like a small variation of this or like the standard pop up window - . - But we're gonna Korean are bored, - so we're gonna go file. - We're gonna get a new I'm gonna call this unit one. - Just have one art board in the side of a letter, - which is a and half by 11. - Set toe portrait, - orientation and clique. - OK, - and there you go. - This is where you begin designing. - Now, - I just want to let you guys know that this is gonna be a very quick rundown of the program - . - Um, - at the end of this unit, - I'm going to be suggesting, - or I'm gonna be assigning you a project, - and it's like gonna be really fun. - You're gonna love it. - So which is a quick run down of the layout? - Here we have our menu bar we Africa Tools Panel over here to the left. - And also just panels more panels, - panels on panels on the right. - And this is our board here. - I'm gonna show you how to edit the our board first. - So if you want to edit the are bored, - you're going to go to this symbol right here, - which is the Arpel Art Board tool. - It's right above the handle. - You click on it and you could see that the great um shade has changed in the background. - And now you have a dotted bounding box around your art board. - And if you want to change this like, - say, - I want it not to be landscape I was gonna click up here to this little guy in the piece of - paper where it says landscape, - and you can also switch it back to portrait. - No switchback portrait if you want to. - Now say, - if I wanted to adjust the size of my our board to be a square, - I can put in nine inches by nine inches. - Or I can just edit it myself by selecting one of these points and dragging in and dragging - out. - So what I want, - but let's leave it to All right. - 11 inches by 8.5, - Um, - basically a landscape piece of paper. - You can also create new our boards by selecting Was Born here, - New art board it's and clicking anywhere. - So let's click over there, - and you could see that it created the same size of our board that it was mentioned here. - Or you could just drag your own just as long as it's in the gray square, - and you can see once we get out of this mode that suddenly have all these are boards, - but I only need one right now, - so I'm gonna go in and delete all these other ones and then go back. - So, - um, - one way that you can move around. - If you have a Mac, - you can hold down two fingers on your track pad and navigate around like that. - But if you don't have the ability to do that if you're on a PC or anything like that, - you can use a hand tool. - You can select the handle and move around, - or you can just press space bar and move around. - So it doesn't matter what tool you're on. - You could be on these tools up here, - and as long as you press down the hand tool, - you could see that it changes and you can move around here. - Zoom, - which is Z, - is the hot key for that. - So very basic. - You click and drag to what you want to go towards like or you could just click and you - could press option for all toe Zoom out racing quicken and old to click out, - and you could see down here to the bottom left corner. - This is where it shows the percentage of where? - Off what? - You're viewing your our board as so right now we're 81% nights. - Little trick that I use a lot if I'm like, - far away from my art board. - And I'm working for some reason over here and then, - like Oh, - no, - I'm lost in the greatness of space And I don't feel like zooming in and zooming out. - You could press command or control zero, - and it will bring you directly back to our board. 3. Selection Tools & Creating Shapes: - So I'm going to introduce you the tools that we will specifically be using for this unit, - which is going to be selection tool, - direct selection tool. - Uh, - the these shapes here, - Usually it would start with rectangle. - Um, - this all these shapes I'm gonna be introducing to those I'm gonna introduce to you basic - coloring of their shapes. - And I'm also gonna be introducing to you arrangement. - So the way we're gonna begin is I'm gonna just select any tool. - So let's start with a square start with a rectangle to all you do is have the rectangle - tool selected, - and you drag, - click and drag outwards, - and you can see that you're already creating a shape. - I'm gonna create that rectangle and then you know that you have your first rectangle. - Well, - say, - I wanted to create a square, - and it was hard for me to really measure that. - That's a square, - cause it tells you right here in the bottom, - like if you see to the bottom right of my cursor, - there's, - like 2.48 inches by 2.7. - But that takes so long to match it up perfectly. - One way you could do it is to have the rectangle selected drag and click or click and drag - and then press shift Hold down, - shift as you drag and you could see that it holds the ratio of a square No matter where you - move, - this concept is the same for creating circles. - So we're gonna go hold down the square here and select lips tool. - And I'm just gonna click and drag and you see that it creates ovals. - Very cool. - Well, - haven't oval Now I want a circle. - So I'm gonna click and drag and then I'm gonna press shift and you could see it creates a - circle, - holds the ratio of a circle no matter where I look. - Now that I have these four shapes, - I'm going to introduce to you the selection tools. - There's two different selection tools. - There's this filled in black pointer, - which is the selection tool, - and there's also a filled with white pointer, - which is the direct selection tool. - And the difference between those two is this right now I'm on the selection tool. - I can click any of these shapes and it will click the entire shape I can click anywhere on - any point doesn't matter what corner I'm in, - it will select the whole circle or the whole shape. - Uh, - with this it also shows the bounding box which has these little know, - little points over here, - which I can use to make things bigger, - smaller? - Just the shape, - uh, - you know, - move it side to side to distort, - do a little transforming of the shape, - and it also helps me rotate. - So if I hover over one of the diagonal corners, - I can click and drag, - and it will rotate for me a quick, - really quick aside if you want to know how to do undo the same thing is like Microsoft Word - or any other undo move. - It's gonna be commander control Z just let you know. - And the great thing about illustrators that there is no maximum toe how far back you can go - As long as you don't disrupt the timeline of what you're been creating. - You can go a Sfar back in time, - like undo as much as you want any time. - So now I'm back with nothing. - So I was gonna create my circle again on must square circles where there you go and the - difference between selection tool and direct selection tool. - So you see, - I So I showed you what you could do the selection tool. - And I'm gonna show you what the direct selection Wilken Dio I can click in the middle. - Sure, - but then if you notice the bounding box isn't visible, - Same thing for the square. - But if use the direct selection tool, - you can select specific anchor points, - which are these little dots right here. - His little points. - It says anchor, - and you can move it, - and everything else will remain stationary. - Same thing goes for the square and select this bottom left corner and move it and - everything else remains the same. - Um, - you can also select a line in between two points this path right here, - and click and drag. - And you could see I will move the two points and the line So everything else moves along - with that. - It's a little bit different. - When you have a curve, - I'll show you. - I'm going to select this path, - which is a curved path. - I'm gonna click and drag and you can see it is distorting curve. - Yeah. - Okay. - Things like this getting used to how lying segments, - paths and bankers move here is one of the main things that I want you to focus on during - this unit. - I just want you to literally make a shape and click and drag around. - Just get used to seeing how things look like when you drag him around, - especially for curves, - because curves are going to be something that is gonna take a little bit of time to master - . - But it's it'll be a lot of help to to see, - like how the curse react, - Um, - along with these handles here. - So this these this line that shows up when I selected this path is called the handle This - you can move around to dictate the curve shake. - So on my direct selection tool, - which is the filled in white cursor, - I'm going to select the handle and I'm gonna move it up and you could see I'm adjusting the - curtain. - I select the the anchor here, - it shows up, - it makes the other handle appear. - And I also added that handle and I could make it all wobbly, - which is great. - Now we can go into depth. - We're gonna I'm gonna teach a little bit more about editing curves in Unit two. - But even now, - just get get situated. - Just just learn how you can change up a shape like this. - Like you can just move it that way, - Stuff like that. - I'm gonna get rid of that. - And that is the direct selection tool. - Now, - really quick. - Just a few other tips and tricks using the selection tool. - If you want to rotate something Ah, - and you want it to be perfect, - like 45 degrees or something like Oh, - no, - I wanted to be straight like they do have anchor points for guides, - but a nice trick is to hold down shift, - and it will drag specifically to those even points, - which is super apple. - Also, - if you're like moving anyone that make things smaller and bigger, - but you don't want to change the shape of it Like how all the senate's a rectangle like, - Oh, - no, - my squares ruined again. - Hold down shift, - and it will keep the ratio of your shape if you want to select multiple tools with a direct - selection tool or, - I mean the selection told the black black cursor, - you can click and drag anywhere. - Just make sure all your shapes or within this bounding box that has shown up and it will - select both shapes, - and you can move them both freely. - Same thing if you just want to do one shape you don't like one click in the shape. - The difference between that and the direct selection tool is if their ex election tool - begins like all of it. - There you go. - But you get again. - You can't. - You don't see a bounding box and you can't, - like, - adjust shape. - Also, - if you come up short like I'm selecting all of it. - But I come up this short and you're trying to move it, - you're only gonna move the anchor points that you selected. - No, - it's very trippy, - but again, - just it just takes practice and for you to get acquainted. - But what's going on? - I'm gonna try that same move with the selection tool. - I still select both complete shapes rather than again with Derek Selection Tool. - It's like in the top and sucking the top and only being able to move this certain shape 4. Basic Coloring & Arrangement: - Now I'm gonna show you basic coloring. - So right now, - uh, - this black line here, - it's called the stroke. - And inside the inside colors called the bill on the way that we want to edit these colors - is if you select one. - Doesn't really matter if it's direct selection or selection tool. - Just select the shape. - Go over here to the left to where you see this bill and stroke these two squares on top of - each other, - and you can double click the square on. - You have all these colors to choose from. - You're gonna have hex colors. - If you want a specific color. - I am gonna choose Gray because I like great. - And then you could see that fill Color has changed. - And now I want to change my stroke to blue. - I know you could see it's changed a blue. - Okay, - well, - how about I do a blue fill that exact blue pill and exact green stroke? - I could just click this area here, - and it's gonna swap the fill color and the stroke color like Okay, - well, - I can't really see the red stroke, - So also, - I'm going to select the shape I'm going to go up here to my control panel. - And I'm gonna where it says stroke, - I'm gonna select stroke weight and move up to, - like, - five points. - And you could see that the stroke weight has thickened. - Just great. - Okay, - so I'm not really feeling that green color anymore. - Maybe I just want no color because you can see, - like, - no matter what background you go on the green remains. - So you just have that color selected. - Not like this. - Like, - not the stroke on top. - Because then that will remove the stroke if you press the nun, - but in here. - But instead I want toe select the pill and then press none. - And you could see that the green was removed from the square. - And no matter where I bring square now, - it is really empty. - It's not like hiding a white filled. - Then I'm gonna teach you arrangements. - This is a very helpful tool when you're designing, - because it actually it helps you design live. - It does a lot of work for you. - So right now everything is laid out. - I can see every single shape. - So what if I begin putting the shapes together at once? - Well, - you can start seeing that certain shapes are barely seen anymore. - I can't even see the yellow one. - Then this blue is taking up all the space and I can't like I could see some of square in - the back. - So the way, - if you want to rearrange these, - like, - say, - I want the Yellow Square to come a friend do you select the Yellow Square with your - selection tool? - You right, - click go to arrange and I'm going to bring that to the front Here. - You see that? - Okay, - this this blue circles the biggest circle. - I want to send it to the back. - I'm gonna select it, - I'm gonna arrange it, - and then I'm gonna send it to the back, - and you could see that it moved throughout the layers. - And this is all I'm gonna be teaching you for this first lesson. - It's very simple, - but it will help you a lot to just get oriented with how these shapes, - um, - act with certain certain commands and things like that. - Like coloring stroke, - weight, - things like that. 5. Unit 1 Deliverable: - This is the delivery ble that I'm gonna be asking from you. - We're gonna have a little project. - What I want you to dio is to create a shape, - any item, - any noun it gives food. - It could be like in Elektronik. - Whatever. - But I want you to just use shapes. - So, - like one time I made an egg and I was super excited. - But you can You can make anything using the circles and squares. - Rectangles, - ovals. - What have you so a really easy one. - If I were gonna make one, - it can literally just be this circle copy and paste it and then copy and paste it again. - Bigger and all organists. - I'm done. - But, - I mean, - it could be this technically counts. - But if you want to be a little more fancy with it, - if you wanna do a little bit more work, - I can. - Or if I should do more work to demonstrate this, - I can start building inside the face of my Mickey here, - creating just a Siris of ovals and circles and just adjusting the shapes. - Now I'm gonna use the direct selection tool and select this bottom anchor point. - Move it down. - You can use your right left arrows to scoot things over. - And I'm just gonna create a very simple Mickey face. - Yea, - see. - And all I'm doing is copying, - pasting the same shapes. - And I'm taking this one. - I'm rotating it and I'm squishing it a little bit to make nos. - There you go. - It's just a simple that I'm gonna be selecting both of these eyes because I can be a little - too long and I'm just gonna move them up again. - The best way to learn illustrator is to just go at it. - Just start creating and using shapes to create images is probably the easiest and funnest - way to do stuff. - So there's Mickey Mouse, - which is your great It's fine. - We can also like, - I don't know, - make like a TV, - And I'm going to make a pink TV cause because that sounds fun. - And I'm going to slit my rounded rectangle tool and, - you know, - make shapes like that and the possibilities are endless. - I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. - I I made a lot of food whenever I did this project. - I don't know why I probably was always hungry but, - you know, - feel free to make make anything, - make a TV and a cereal box. - That's food. - Still that, - you know, - make a character on animal penguin and turn it in as your delivery ble. - And I can't wait to see what all of you guys come up with. - This is meant to be fun. - This is meant to be a really fun first project for you to make on illustrator. - And you're pretty much guaranteed something like cute and Schauble that you can show off to - your friends. - Okay, - so I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. - And don't forget to turn it in and I'll see you in unit two. 6. Unit 2.1: Introducing the Pen Tool: - Hey, - guys, - this is Mickey with unit two of Learning Adobe Illustrator for fashion with learning the - pen tool and other useful tips and tricks. - So in unit One, - we learned shapes. - So you have already created your deliverable. - You play around with shapes and everything like that. - Your master, - you've mastered the shapes and basic coloring. - Awesome. - So now we're gonna be moving on to the pen tool. - So here's the pendulum here. - Shortcut is P. - And you're thinking, - all right, - cool Will have a pen click and drag array. - And it will draw for me like, - OK, - go. - Well Oh, - Okay. - Well, - that didn't work. - I have his weird line here and I let go. - Um, - let's click again. - Okay, - so that's how you create a shape. - That's that was my first reaction. - The pen tool. - Um, - there are other, - you know, - tools out there like brush where you could just draw like a normal brush. - But pencil is something altogether different. - But if you master it, - you will learn to love it. - So here's how the pencil works. - Click wants to make an anchor point. - Click again immediately after that without pressing anything else. - You create a line between another anchor point. - Every click you make creates an anchor point, - as you can see, - So with a pencil you can create straight lines like I was doing earlier. - Straight C Exactly lines. - But you can also create purse by putting a point and then clicking and dragging and you see - you conform curves. - And this is where learning the pen tool can get pretty tricky. - A quick, - ah quick thing that you might get stuck with if you're working on a pencil shaped and - you're like, - OK, - sweet, - I love it, - I'm done. - Look out! - Oh, - no Click out, - I cant click out. - Quick tip is, - if you're making a shape with the pen tool and then you want to make a new shape, - press p again and it will help you start over. - The pen tool also creates close shapes, - so I'm gonna add a filled to the shape here, - and you could see this is what's going on. - And it's crazy. - Well, - I wanted to be a closed shape. - I wanted to be like a weird, - boring looking thing, - So if you just click on the first point, - you could see like I'll start over I'm about to click on this point here, - and you could see that a little circle has popped up. - That means it's going to close the shape and the Phil has been contained in this shape. - Let me do that again. - I'm gonna make cycle weird, - angular shape on right here. - You can see that there's no stroke from this point to this point Is a close shape with a - little circle popped up? - I'm gonna close it. - Okay, - Well, - how about I have this open shape and I'm doing other things over here? - I come back and I want to close the shape. - I'm gonna go to my pencil. - I'm gonna click on the anger that I want to start with where you could see that little - slash is where you're starting off from. - And then I'm gonna close it in. - There. - You get you get the little circle again, - and this becomes close shape, - which behaves like any of the other shapes that you made in Unit one. - And you can at the points things like that you could move stuff around, - but with the pencil, - you can do some different things, - So I'm going to go back to my pen tool. - Another feature of the pencil has is adding and subtracting anchor points. - So with my shape selected, - I'm gonna either select it with any tool direct selection. - Um, - I'm gonna go to my pen tool, - and I'm gonna delete this shape here. - I'm not really liking this dip. - I'm just gonna press the anchor and you could see a little minus sign popped up next to the - pen. - There goes that eliminates. - So Okay, - how about I add some anchor points and I can create another shape? - You just click on the line, - you could see a little plus sign pop up, - and that lets you know that you can add a point. - Now that I've got down those points, - I'm gonna get my direct selection tool. - I'm gonna move my anchor points, - and you could see I'm creating whole different shape now just from adding and subtracting - those few points say you have this shape and you want to add a curve to it. - And you're like, - OK, - well, - should I just start over making entire new shape? - Well, - you don't have to. - Which is the great thing. - Another trick that the pen tool has a feature that has his convert Anger Point tool. - If you select that by holding down, - uh, - pencil and then select into the bottom convert Anger Point tool, - you couldn't select any anchor. - And I'm just going to do this. - Just click and drag An wasn't a click and drag and see what happens. - Suddenly the handles pop up and you can see I am creating curves from that point that was - originally just two segments together, - and from then I could just select my my direct selection tool and adjust those curves. - And I say I I want this segment to remain straight, - but I want to create a dome over here. - One way you could do that is to again use the convert anchor point to make the handles show - up. - You could select this handle, - then put it back to the anchor point, - so this remains straight line. - But now you can adjust. - So now you can attest this handle specifically, - even if both handles air still showing like, - say, - I got this going on and I just want to create a more dramatic curve here. - I can just move this anchor and the other anchor will remain the same. - And if you want toe, - create straight lines. - If you want to remove all curves, - you could just simply click on a point with the convert anchor tool and eliminate all terms - like bam. - I know this might seem like a lot to absorb right now, - but this is basically it. - This is this is what the pennant Wilken dio, - and it's just a matter of mastering and learning like the rules of using the pen tool. - Um, - in order Teoh create all, - like different kinds of shapes and things like that. - So I want you to play around with that, - Um, - I am providing guys with a document a pdf called pen tool practice, - and I just laid out a few like curves and little things for you to go around. - All you have to do is just follow the guide. - Make sure your stroke is set to just one color. - You don't need to fill and just follow the directions I have here. - Click to set the first anger and just follow the guides and create the shapes that I have - created free here just so you can get oriented, - go through this many times and then you will know the pencil before you know it 7. Unit 2.2: Align & Distribution: - for the rest of unit two, - I'm going to be teaching you some more. - Um, - some more functions of illustrator that you can use That will be very helpful when you're - designing a garment flat. - So the first thing I'm gonna teach you is a line which can be found over here on the side. - It's like two bars and a line, - or you can also go toe window and the line view it there. - Um, - so I'm just gonna create a series of shapes, - Gonna create lots of circles. - Four circles, - you know, - it. - Let's have one more circle, - and they're all pretty random here. - He's gonna put him in a different border, - like, - Okay, - so what if I was making buttons, - so to say Okay, - well, - there you go. - I got it. - I got my circles in line. - Well, - kind of big. - So I'm gonna make him smaller, - like, - OK, - so it's gonna take so long for me to just align them together like this and every single - button? - No. - And then they're not spaced evenly. - Well, - this is where a line comes to play to say I have all my shapes, - all random, - really know stuff like that you can select all the shapes with your selection tool. - Okay, - well, - first thing I want to show you is a line to so right now it's set to align our board, - meaning if I press horizontal line center, - it will align it in the middle of the art board. - See how that works. - Say, - this group is over here again. - If I lined to center, - it would move to center. - But if it's over there and I want it to remain over there, - But I wanted to align. - I can go align to selection and press the line horizontally center and they're ago. - It's like not in the move our board, - but it's still aligned with the tools itself. - Also, - the other last selection here is aligned to key object. - So let's say I want all of these circles to align to this circle here. - I'm going to change the color to distinguish it, - distinguish it to blip. - I mean, - it's like all of these, - and with all of them selected, - I'm gonna press a second time on the blue circle and you could see another thicker blue - outline has outlined the circle. - And once I do that if I press, - um, - center align horizontal lines and here it will all align to that circle specifically, - and it doesn't have to be that circle. - I could do it to the circle and you could see if I do it, - it moves over there. - So that's just explaining what a line to means that now that I have everything online, - let's say I want them to be spaced evenly apart, - and it's gonna take too long for me toe, - you know, - move them all together. - So I'm gonna move this down a little bit. - I'm going to select all of them, - make sure it's aligned to selection, - and I'm gonna use distribute objects, - and I'm going to distribute them vertically. - Like so here you go. - And learning what each of these do. - Is I one of my next. - My next suggestions for use two. - Just have these Siris of shapes, - placed them in all kinds of crazy positions, - select him and then press a button and see what it does. - So, - for example, - um, - horizontal line right will make all of them a line to the very farthest on the right shape - . - Um, - horizontal. - So left will make it a line to the shape on the left. - There you go. - Also, - that was in alliances election. - But if you lined our board, - it's going to the line to the right side of our board board's gonna line to the left side - of the art board and so on. - It was also vertical line center, - which, - if you press that and a line will keep the line our board, - it will align everything. - It's horizontal, - but also vertical, - Um, - and one of my circles missing thirties. - And also the same thing goes for distributing the objects. - If I want the even spacing horizontally, - if I press horizontal distribute center, - they will be aligned evenly. - But in the are bored, - so just play around with, - um, - the align function. - It's super helpful when you're doing things like buttons or specific patterns like Coca dos - and stuff like that. - I love this tool or, - if you want things, - just seal line up. - It doesn't have to be about spacing all the time, - so that is the ally in tool 8. Unit 2.3: Reflect & Grouping: - next tool I'm gonna teach you is appreciate. 9. Unit 3.1: The Mirroring Technique Part 1: - Hey, - guys, - it's me, - Mickey here with ah Unit three of Learning Adobe Illustrator for fashion with garment flats - for tops. - So in this unit, - I'm going to be spending all the time just going over the certain challenges and steps that - you have to take when you're making a top. - So tops in this case, - I will teach you shirts like a normal T shirt or a button up shirt. - But I will leave it to your interpretation to how you can use it. - This is just how you begin with a top. - So he took my last class also here on skill share. - Basic garment flats. - I provided these crow keys here. - They're gonna be attached again in this class, - and they are for you to use freely. - You do whatever you want with them. - They make a great template, - and I'm gonna show you how to use it now. - So if you save it to your desktop, - which I have it saved here, - save it to some folder. - Just remember where you have it. - You're gonna start out on adobe illustrating in the press command or control end and create - a new document. - I'm gonna call this Unit three and you're gonna have it sent a letter size and make sure is - portrait Orientation press. - Okay, - there it is. - We're gonna go back to file. - We're gonna go back to We're gonna hit place here. - I'm gonna go to my desktop where we have this saved. - And today I will make amends T shirt. - So I'm just gonna go to male croak. - E pdf. - I'm gonna make sure link is checked off and template is also checked off, - and I'm gonna press place And what that does and press OK again when this little puppet - shows up. - Well, - that does it. - Places it on your art board for you. - And as you could see, - it's kind of transparent. - It's lighter. - It's on a completely different level, - or layer, - and it's already been locked, - so you could just start working, - which is great. - So again, - if you took my last class, - which was basic garment flats, - I showed you something called the mirroring technique. - And I'm going to be going over it briefly here again that we build an entire or as much as - we possibly can off one side of the garment and then we flip it and that saves us just a - world of time. - So to begin with a shirt you begin at center friend, - if you're familiar with pattern making, - this is where you begin drafting all patterns. - So I'm gonna start at center front, - middle. - I'm gonna give him, - like, - a normal krunic neckline. - I dragged out with shift toe, - create a straight curve, - and I'm just going to click to where the neck meets the shoulder and just adjust that curve - . - There you go. - Next thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go over to the shoulder and I'm gonna make the shape - of the shoulder seam. - Remove this feel really quick so you could see what I'm working on. - Now this is that where, - like, - this is a really great example to see where the crow he comes in handy. - I'm going to trace around the arm hole seem and as you could see where the sleeve I could - just trace where his armies and go around and I'm pressing if you could You could see like - what we learned in unit two about clicking again on your anchor to remove any other curves - that it's gonna be implementing. - You want to start it with a brand new segment, - you could just end it points as you go so that I'm gonna go down. - I'm gonna do side seam. - I'm gonna make it a straight line because he doesn't want no curve. - And then I'm gonna go back to the hem at centre front and make a slight Kurt. - There we go. - That's your body and gonna put a fill on it. - You could see that we've got this going on, - so don't reflect just yet. - We're gonna work on the sleeve, - So I guess I'll just make this a standard short sleeve. - Zuma been here? - I'm going to start by just tracing over the arm and just giving him a nice sleeve shape. - And then I'm gonna close it up close of the shape. - Always close your shapes. - You're looking at this in your leg. - That's not right. - Instead of having the trace exactly this blue line that I had, - which indicates my my body shape on the bottom, - I was gonna click this and I'm gonna arrange it to the back, - which is what we learned. - Send the backs. - And there you go. - And then after that, - you could just add it. - More points, - click And you the arrow keys to kind of adjust the shape. - All right, - cool. - Now we're gonna make the caller, - which is just gonna be a line without a fill and just gonna trace it. - So that's one way to do it. - If you wanted to be really precise, - you can take the segment and select it with your direct selection Tool command. - See copy on a place, - or I'm gonna show you a trick. - Right now it's called paste in place. - Command F. - So it pasted it exactly in place, - if you could see. - So if I were to just press command V, - it will show up over here. - But if I press command f, - it showed up exactly where I had copied it. - And after that, - you could just move it down a little bit and then just move the curve to match where you - want it, - Teoh. - Now, - that might have not have been the greatest example of use of Commander control after, - believe me, - it comes in handy. - And I think I have another example for you a little later on, - which is great. - All right, - so now we're gonna be adding scenes. - So seeing line stitch lines and stuff when we're gonna add it here on our sleeve first. - And this is where pace in place comes in handy. - We're gonna use our direct selection tool to select copy and then paste it in place and - then just scooted upwards and you could see it already created the curve of the line. - I'm just gonna remove the fill from this, - and you could even screwed it over so that it's not going over the edge. - Get in their closer. - There you go. - So this is a straight line, - but I wanted to be a stitch line like this. - So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go to the right hand side of Adobe Illustrator hit this - little icon here. - That is stroke. - You're gonna have all these options for your struggle. - Eight. - And I'm gonna press dashed line. - And it instantly changed it to a dash line. - But you can customize your dash and gap with, - so I'm just gonna do, - like, - a three dash and a three Gap. - Yeah, - uh, - maybe a little closer to two. - Yeah, - that's fine for me. - I even go to and anyway I'm also gonna change the weight of it. - 2.5. - So it's thinner so you can distinguish between the outline of the garment and also the - stitch. - So sometimes people have two lines here on the sleeve and you're thinking, - Oh, - no, - the sleeve is the stitch lines or scooting over again over the body. - So I'm just gonna select all that and again arrange and send it back. - I'm gonna do my hem line, - selecting the bottom him with my direct selection tool pacing in place with command f - excluding it up a bit. - And now I'm gonna use my eyedropper tool instead of having to go back here. - Press dash Like what? - If you want that to be if it's gone and you're like, - Oh, - no, - it takes too long. - Here's another great wayto use the shortcut. - Is your gonna be using this eyedropper tool over here on the left? - The command is I for I for I and I'm just gonna select this other line over here and you - could see that my my segment over here took the attributes of the stitch line that I had - made earlier Again, - I'm gonna copy and paste in place and make to just great. - And we can add one more here just for it's good. - Good. - Okay, - so last one we're gonna do is this sleeve, - uh, - the's take a little bit of Eddings. - You could see it doesn't reach all the way down on the bottom. - So I'm just gonna drag it there, - and I have to just my curve. - Using my handle. - You use that. - This is the beauty of the croquet is just keeps you in proportion. 10. Unit 3.2: The Mirroring Technique Part 2: - So now that I have completed everything that I can for one side of the garment, - I'm gonna select all of it. - I'm going to Right click. - I'm gonna transform. - Reflect a copy. - Vertical, - a vertical reflection on the copy. - And it created a copy for you. - So while all of this is selected, - you're gonna drag it and you could drag holding shifts. - So you know that it's staying in line and you're just gonna let the guide snap you to meet - the ends of the first half that you made, - like, - OK, - great. - I created a shirt. - But if you notice if I select this part of the body, - it's still separate from this side of the body. - Like like that. - I want this to be one solid piece. - I'm gonna teach you a trick right now. - We're gonna go up to center from the very first point that you made. - You could see that this is where two points should meet. - I want only one point here. - I'm going to select my lasso tool, - which is cute rescue for the hockey. - I'm gonna circle around the two points that I want to join. - And now I'm going to join them. - And I'm gonna press, - command or control Jay to join join And what you can see that that does is that it joined - this to be one solid piece. - It's not closed yet, - so don't get confused. - But it's now one piece. - And the reason why this got brought up is because the ordering of layering and stuff like - that. - So you have to play around with layering later, - which is a great exercise. - Now I'm going to close the bottom point because you can see that these points also don't - meet. - If I drag it out, - show you they don't meet. - So I'm gonna last woman. - I'm gonna join them together. - And now this truly is its own closed shake. - Now, - to get seem lines back together, - I'm just gonna reorder some things. - I'm gonna send this backward. - It's gonna take a while. - So I'm going to use a hockey, - which is Commander Control left Bracket, - and I'm just gonna let it go back. - You could see that this sleeve came to the front, - so I'm just gonna select all this and then send it to the back. - There you go. - So there's more things that we have to close. - You have to remember to close everything. - Everything. - So these two here aren't closed. - So I'm just going to select those with my last tools Command J. - Move that, - Phil. - Here's another open one. - The stitch line Command J That and you could see the stitching adjusted because it knows - now that it's one shape instead of looking kind of long, - we're gonna go down here. - These two need to be joined together. - A glass of it. - Command J join last of these points, - man J for joint. - The last step for this shirt, - it looks almost done. - It's gonna be great. - Soon we're gonna do is add the back of the shirt because for the crow key yeah, - makes sense. - Uh, - you know, - his back is behind him, - so you're not going to see it, - But then you're not gonna always have a crow key visible when you're turning in your flats - to somebody. - So if it's just gonna be a normal T shirt, - I just remove the visibility of this layer. - You're gonna want the back of a shirt visible. - So what we're gonna do is we're just gonna create nice Cymbal shape. - Gonna start over here. - Gonna connect where my neck line for my in the neck meets the shoulder. - We're going to go to the middle. - You can use these guides is gonna hold down shift to make an even curve. - Oh, - it's on a dash line. - But I'll fix that later. - Go to the other side and then create this nice little shape here. - And I'm going to use my eyedropper tool. - Take the attributes of the main body of the shirt. - Now I'm gonna click it right. - Click, - arrange and send it back. - There you go. - You have the back of your shirt. - Simple. - Is that do you want to get really fancy? - And if you wanted more practice with the pencil, - you can spend time making your ribbing here for the neckline. - Uh, - I mean, - go ahead. - If you totally feel like it like I can I can show you some tricks later on, - or I will show you some tricks later on how to make that easy for you. - But for now, - this is what we're making. - So there you go. - You have your own T shirt? - Yeah, 11. Unit 3.3: Going Further - Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt Part 1: - Now we're going to be making a long sleeve button up shirt again. - Start at center front. - Same way that you started the T shirt center friend, - Make curve to the shoulder. - You're making the body. - It's gonna go around armful straight down. - It's gonna be a little longer. - Now I'm going to make a series of curves. - So selecting this point here, - I'm gonna pull down option and drag with shift so it already starts out. - Occur for you. - Then you click to where you want and you create a nice bell shaped you can edit bell shape - . - This is just gonna be a really simple caller. - Start packed where you want the rise to be and make a simple little rectangle gonna make it - curved. - It's like a curvy rectangle. - You could just edit the points to where you'd like it to lie on the shirt. - Now we're gonna begin making the sleeve. - It's gonna be the same as the T shirt, - but we're gonna go farther down. - I started my shoulder. - I'm gonna go around the arm again. - Little curve at the shoulder, - a little curve at the elbow and bring it down to the cup. - Gonna make a slight curve for the cuff and then bring it back up and then closed by shape. - Now I can edit the cuff little bit. - However I want to I'm gonna click on this. - I'm gonna range and send it to the back so I could see what I'm working with. - So looks like I'm finished with the first half of the body and was gonna add stitching - before I move everything over and make some adjustments. - Gonna copy this segment like so. - And then I'm just gonna just it a little bit too fit the edges. - Nice. - Gonna make my seam lines here, - Take the attributes of stitch line of me before I know I'm moving pretty fast through this - , - but hopefully you guys keeping up And I am totally open answering any and all questions. - You can also make my stitch line for college. - This is very nice. - Just line it up. - Just play around with your points and I'm gonna make the hem. - So this is a very it's a more detailed curve to make If I were to just make it by hand, - so I'm just gonna copy it, - paste it place, - screwed it up they got that part. - That's stitch line. - The differences between a button up shirt and a T shirt is that this doesn't actually have - to be a close shape. - The body does not have to be a close shave because button up shirts do not have this. - As a result, - that looks like you're wearing a sweater vest over a button up shirt. - So this difference is you're still using the mirroring concept, - but you don't have to join the shapes together. - So I'm gonna close this shape here. - And the centre front is where buttons lie. - So you know that the seam of a button placket doesn't lie, - actually, - on centre front. - So I'm going to scoot this over just a couple points before I mirror my two sides. - I mean, - at a yoke just cause you look nice. - Well, - you seen all right? - Just just for detailing. 12. Unit 3.4: Going Further - Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt Part 2: - Now I'm going to copy everything, - select everything I'm going to reflect and I'm gonna copy. - And now I'm going to drag it over, - and I'm going to drag it to where? - The two points of the collar meat. - Because then that is center friend. - You know McGinnis, - You have a button up shirt. - Now you just have to give a little bit. - You have to make some adjustments to make it more of a button up shirt, - for example. - Just for for my own fancy. - I like to move this down so you can tell you can distinguish really that there is two flaps - instead of one continuous body. - I like to make the boat colorize over here, - so I just make a simple shape, - like a because you're not gonna really see it. - It's gonna be underneath the caller, - give us like curve. - I know that I am making a stitch again. - I'm going to take the attributes this but I'm going to select the collar pieces and send - them front so that he hides in the back. - Yeah, - that's awesome. - Good job. - So one of the things that we didn't make first and then mirror over his pocket. - So I'm gonna show you how to make a pocket before you continue. - One way to do it is you could really just start with a square using the shape, - tool, - rectangle tools and then use your pen tool while it's still selected to add anchor in the - middle and then move that anchor down using your arrow keys. - And there you go. - You have a talking simple is that after that, - you could just a copy lines to make your stitch lines. - Or you could just draw your stitch lines by following around the bucket. - Very nice. - So here's a great example of using groups while you're working. - Say, - I want to move the pocket down. - But I don't wanna have to, - like, - move this and then move every single stitch line. - I'm gonna just one time going to select the pocket. - I'm gonna select stitch lines and then I'm gonna press command G and group together. - Now on. - All I have to do is press anywhere within being group with my selection tool, - and I can move it around at will. - Great. - Nice pocket. - Often, - we're gonna finish up the button placket, - so I'm gonna select the edge of the T shirt or the button up shirt. - I'm gonna coffee that line. - I'm gonna place it. - Remove any Phil, - and I'm gonna scoot it over to where it should be over here. - So that's about rate. - Make sure the line matches down here. - Good. - All right. - And see, - now you have your bed Black it awesome. - Lastly, - I'm going to just add the back of this collar again. - You just start at the edge of the color and create that back shape and close your sheep and - then select it. - Arrange it and send it back. - Well, - uh, - again, - um, - this is not as detailed as it should be, - but this is just the basics. - There's there's other details that we should be adding, - but we're not gonna get into that right now, - so I last time to show you his buttons. - So remember when I taught you alignment?
