I bought this product since I needed some more references for my fashion sketching.

I think the garment encyclopedia is INCREDIBLY useful to see the basic garments to then use in its simplistic form or make it more complex. This gives a baseline for all garments and is a good starting point.

The croquis in the book are also useful, although I don't see the point in having more than one figure looking the same (since I wouldn't draw in it anyway and I'd rather trace the figure). But overall it's definitely worth the price and useful to see basic figures and garments.

A good reference book but if I had to buy just one fashion reference book this wouldn't be my first choice, but rather 3rd or 4th on my list!

This is a great sketch pad. Has great poses in small and large sizes. I bought 6 of them, because I am in love with this item.

FASHION SketchBook by Tamar Daniel

I bought the 8.5" x 11.5", spiral-bound, FASHION SketchBook for the page of 70 small line drawings of construction styles (collars, lapels, waists, cuffs, etc.) shown in the preview, along with 3 pp of glossary. I want to learn the elements of clothing design.

The remaining 58 sheets of heavy paper stock is printed on both sides with 400 female outlines in runway stances, just dark enough to see, too faint to register in photocopies, for overdrawing and overpainting clothing.

The publisher believes that designers want to save the time of sketching clothes hangers, and wannabees are happy to be relieved of learning how to draw the stylized, long-legged fashion figure. Anybody with 401 ideas will have to buy another SketchBook, or learn how to draw.

It seems to me that professional designers can sketch figures in the exact pose and size envisioned with less bother than conforming to templates, and wannabees who have not learned to sketch a standard figure are very likely to need some study for rendering drapery well enough to show. Furthermore, both pros and wannabees need male figures and children along with female models for El Greco. But, what do I know?
