In fashion design, patterns and prints are incredibly important. A specific pattern or print can set the entire mood/ feeling of the piece you are designing. Polka dots indicate youth, whereas a pinstripe would indicate a business or mature style. There are HUNDREDS of prints and patterns. Some patterns are universal, like polka dots, and some patterns are complete original creations unique to a specific fashion designer. In order to create anything new we must first know where we came from!

Bring me your drawing. I will cut it apart and tape it back together as needed and scan it in.
Open a NEW PHOTOSHOP FILE 8.5 x 11" 300 RESOLUTION! Open your scan from the share folder. Copy and paste it into that new photoshop file.
Size it into the upper left hand corner.

Merge all the layers together. Then use the brush tool, small, black and fill in any gaps in the lines.
Print and color!
