1 This lesson is drawing a bandeau swim top and will be taught by Jessica Krupa. So, starting with the template provided by the University of Fashion named Bandeau Swim Top, you’ll be able to access the following brushes and components in order to complete your bandeau swim top.
2 So, zooming in, you’ll start with the brand name, season, style name, and number. You’ll be provided a front and back view of the torso of a croquis. And your brushes that you’ll be using for this lesson are the outline, the zigzag, and the bar tack all over here on your workspace. And then also provided it for you is a halter tie, a large swan hook for the back, and mini swan hooks that will be for the adjustment part of the string top around the bandeau.
3 Over here on your layers, you’ll see that you have a sketch layer, a croquis layer, the template that has the brand name, season, and style number up here, as well as your brushes.
