Part 1: Steps of Creating Fashion Design

2. Sketch out the clothes outline upon the model using the drawing tools.

Switch to Symbols menu, and you will see a set of drawing tools containing "Pencil Tool", "Pen Tool", "Move Anchor", "Add Anchor", "Delete Anchor", "Convert Anchor", and more. It will take you a few minutes to get familiar with these tools. You can always turn to the Dynamic Help on the right side of the canvas.
