# Design a fashion sketch from scratch

#### Basic fashion sketch.  To have a pictorial representation of your ideas, before you implement them, you will need a figure that will highlight them. The figure tries to serve the best performance in the design according to needs and trends. However, here you will learn a classic illustration of it.

As a measure we will take the size of the head. In a simple drawing, we calculate the height of the body from the jaw and below to be equal to seven heights of the head. In a freer design we estimate it to be equal to nine head heights.

You will need a 30 x 40 cm drawing block.

• First we will draw the head. Make a rectangle. For a perfect head shape, we estimate its horizontal dimension to be 2/3 of the vertical. So if we have 4 cm. vertical, then we will have 2.7 cm. horizontally. Capture the head in the shape of an egg with its sharp side down.
