Technical drawing for fashion must visually communicate how depicted garment is constructed, not only how it looks.
Fashion technical drawing must include all visual information necessary for production of the garment.
- Think of technical drawing as a visual legal document.
- Arrange all relevant elements of the drawing in such a way in which they would be most easily and unmistakably interpreted by the viewer, instead of arranging them in a most realistic way.
- Callouts (zoomed, close-ups of most important details) are examples of instructive elements of technical drawing.
- Technical drawing must contain all relevant elements in the most precise and meticulous way. It must provide all necessary information for the process of apparel making.
