Plus size croqui
Source: Designers Nexus

I'm not sure if croqui is the plural or singular of the the base model that fashion designers use to sketch their designs on? Do any of my dear readers know? Any who, they typically are perfectly proportioned usually super tall line drawings of model on which you draw your clothing on. By drawing your clothing on top of a real body shape you can see how the garment will fit better. Keep in mind that pencil and paper is not bound by laws of gravity or any other earthly laws of physics such as drape or fabric behavior, but it does give you a good representation of body mechanics.

When I first started this blog there were not many plus size croqui out there. I based all my designs on the same pose. I did a search the other day and was pleasantly surprised to find a number of other ones. I actually was given some gorgeous plus size croqui by Amarina of Ursa Major a ridiculously long time ago, that I've recently been sketching on (don't worry you will be seeing them soon).
