Female fashion croquis templates

for those who want to draw their own designs

As a patternmaker who loves fashion design and learning to be a designer, I sketch a lot. Most of the time, I just pick up a piece of paper and start doodling on it without using any template. Of course, the design will look sketchy, and after that, I spend some time perfecting it, adjusting some details, until I am happy with the result. And if I want to put the design into my portfolio, I must redraw it using a croquis template.

Above are some of my fashion design illustrations. You may say that wow, they do not look so professional! But you can still see what details the designs have, and that’s enough for a pattern designer like me (I am not a real artist who can draw fabulous paintings). Many times I do not bother with coloring them. I prefer putting colors and print patterns on the designs using my beloved 3D pattern making software.

To many of you, croquis is quite familiar. It is just a simple sketch of human figure used in fashion illustration. Clothing and accessory designs are then drawn on the croquis and people can visualize the design easily. Many fashion designs are drawn carefully on multiple croquis templates, showing various perspectives (the front, the back, the side view, etc.)

There are many croquis templates on the Internet, some are sold for a high price on Etsy or other websites, but I prefer using the ones that I created myself. They are made from images of real life models – with extra lines to guide you about the most important proportions on the body (the bust, waist, hips for example). I think this kind of croquis is easy to use, even for those who do not know much about drawing human figures (just like I did when I started drawing many years ago).

I drew lots of croquis – a whole bundle of nearly 50 figures in all kinds of postures, and use them in turn. I just love to see my designs on different poses – the whole sketchbook looks much less boring than one with only a stiff straight standing model. And of course, there are times when one pose works better to provide a visual of the design than the others.

You can see here my collection of female croquis templates, the ones that I use the most (and there are 49 of them!, and more in my computer). If you print them out and put on each croquis one design, you will have a whole sketchbook. And when you see each of them is standing in a different way, the whole sketchbook will look much cooler! Believe, I love my sketchbooks – and I spend lots of time drawing. This hobby is quite time-consuming you know. Sometimes, I sketched out too many designs and then got confused of what I should choose to make patterns.
