I have no artistic skill whatsoever, but I have an artistic sense when it comes to sewing. I think it's because I know what I want what I make to look like. I'm skillfull with my sewing machine, but not wiht a pencil. Does that make sense?


Yes you do make sense. But I think that there's no such thing as no skill at all! You would shudder at my first drawings and even the first two YEARS of drawings I made of dresses and the ladies in them. But after 4 years of practicing, it gets better. Anybody can draw if they practice enough! Can you draw a stick figure? Bravo! You drew! :wink:

I can draw, in fact I have drawn since an early age, and just realised recently I was designing costumes for most of my childhood;) It was basically fan art but recreating wardrobes and characters ;)

I have most of my art on my ISP provided site:

And often sketch my costumes before making them:

And often do quick sketches to put together ideas for possible costumes:

Work on the costume.

There are nearly always changes to be made.
