In the world of apparel design, creativity knows no bounds. With VStitcher fashion design software, apparel designers can access powerful tools to bring their imaginative visions to life in minutes. This video tutorial explores the possibilities of creating custom outfits using 3D blocks in 10 simple steps. By leveraging the vast resources in the Cloud Library, we will demonstrate how to transform basic patterns into fashion-forward outfits.
#1: Download 3D Blocks from the Cloud Library
To begin, access the Cloud Library and download a wide variety of 3D blocks that suit your design requirements. These blocks will serve as the foundation for your garment, allowing you to customize and modify them to create your unique look.
#2: Create a New Outfit
Start by preparing the patterns for your garment. Select the pattern pieces of the shirt and the jacket and remove them from the 3D window. This step helps you focus on individual elements while designing your outfit.
#3. Dress the Leggings
Next, dress the leggings using the available blocks. You can choose from various colors and patterns to match your design vision.
#4: Customize Colors and Fabrics
Enhance your garment’s aesthetics by adding a custom color library. Recolor the fabric to achieve the desired look. Additionally, explore the Browzwear fabric libraries to download new fabrics and replace the existing material with fresh options.
#5: Refine and Modify the Design
Now it’s time to refine the design details. Enlarge the length of the garment using the Slide tool, and draw slanted internal lines with the Pen tool to create unique patterns. Extend these lines to the edges and enable the “Show on 3D” option to visualize their impact.
#6: Create Cut Marks and Assign Fabrics
Convert the internal lines into cut marks and assign the appropriate fabric to the defined areas. You can use the Mesh Midweight fabric for specific sections. Adjust the visibility of border lines in the 3D window for a cleaner representation of your design.
#7: Dress the Shirt and Apply Finishing Touches
Enable the visibility of the Drop Shoulder Shirt pattern pieces in the 3D window. Dress the shirt by selecting the required pattern pieces and applying the desired fabrics. Download Ripstop fabric from the material library, recolor it, and assign it to the shirt.
#8: Modify the Jacket
Switch to the jacket pattern pieces and ensure they are placed on a higher 3D layer than the shirt. Enable the visibility of the Jacket pattern pieces in the 3D window. Dress the jacket and make adjustments as needed.
#9: Fine-tune the Design
Remove any unnecessary elements such as sleeves and drawstrings to simplify the jacket’s appearance. Rearrange and scale the pattern pieces, update the simulation, and refine the garment’s shape. Consider adding zippers, buttons, and other detailing to enhance the overall design.
#10: Experiment with Colorways and Finalize the Look
Experiment with different color variations using the Colorways Workspace to create a unique palette for your outfit. Use a custom pose to visualize the garment’s draping and simulate its movement. Finally, complete the look by adding shoes from the Closet and using the Styling tool to fine-tune the overall appearance.
With the flexibility of 3D blocks and the vast array of design options available in the Browzwear Cloud Library, you have the power to create anything you envision.
