Step Description
1A To draw the size 8 female flats croquis template, you will first need to establish a center or plum line. To do this, use your ruler to draw a 10” (25.4cm) line down the center of the page. Place a mark at the midway 5” (12.7cm) point.
1B The female flats croquis is a more real-life proportion than that of the elongated fashion croquis, which is a 10-headed proportion. Divide the center or plum line into 8 equal sections, each measuring 1 ¼” (3.2cm) per section. Mark off from the top, 1 though 4, and continue onto the lower half, 5 through 8. You will end up with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 equal sections.
2A Next you will draw a frame on the first section measuring 3/8” (1cm) wide on both sides of the plum line.
