Teaching Myself How to Sketch

My method of designing a hat is to mentally visualize it and work from there.  The problem is that when I try to recall multiple designs, most of the time my memory fails me.  So, I spent a few hours yesterday trying to teach myself how to do a little millinery design sketching.  I gave up on trying to add detail to the eyes, nose, and mouth and opted for what you see in the image.  I guess I'll take a fashion design sketching class when I retire.


  1. Hi, these drwaings are wondurful. thank you for sharing!

  2. I think your sketches are really cute and what's more they clearly portray the hat idea.
    Good job!


  3. Thanks Cristina. I also enjoyed your brimmed turban!


  4. Loving your sketches Lee. I have never sketched a hat, can't draw a straight line with a ruler, you are GOOD. Rose in Dallas

  5. Thanks Rose. Actually, I'm not that good (to me) either. I'd like to take a sketching class.
