In this tutorial, you will learn how to draw a pleated skirt. I am sure that this tutorial will be very useful for you.
I have prepared for you a new drawing lesson in which I would like to tell you and show you how to draw a pleated skirt step by step. Surely, you have seen this item of clothing many times.
The pleated skirt is distinguished by the fact that many parallel folds are artificially created on it. Such skirts are often used as an element of the costume of girls playing tennis.
When doing this drawing lesson, you don’t have to draw perfectly straight lines. Thus, to draw a pleated skirt, you do not need to use a ruler, as all lines must be drawn by hand and slight irregularities are allowed in order to convey the natural structure of the fabric of the skirt.
