The family croquis: new digital dress forms of me, hubby and baby

Aren't we an adorable family of digital dress forms? Click to enlarge!

I have all kinds of sewing projects (for myself and the little one) in the works, plus a finished object or two to review... but first I had to share a sneak peek at the new digital dress forms I created of my family last night after my toddler went to bed.

A long time ago and far far away I promised to put together a tutorial on how to create and use a digital croquis (beyond just: "photograph yourself, trace it, sketch over it.") I'm not sure when/if I'll get a chance to write one to my original level of intention, but at some point I will share some step-by-step photos of the process and hope you all get something out of it.

The first things I intend to sketch on these new dress forms are wide-legged high-waisted trousers for myself, and a pair of piped overalls for baby girl.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!


  1. very cute - I did photos for a croquis, but in a fit of horror decided against proceeding further

  2. Oh my goodness! I would seriously LOVE to see a tutorial on how to create a digital croqui! What program did you use?

    Keep us posted on the how-to! Love your blog!


I'd love to hear from you! But no ads please--I'll just have to delete them.
