Introduction: LONG DENIM/KHAKI SKIRT
he concept of this drawing was to create a skirt using the Betabrand's pants template. For this particular design I used a photoshop software. Since there aren't too many layers for this design recreating it should be simple.
1.Take the Betabrand pants template and duplicate it twice. After you make your duplicates you will need to crop the top half (front view) from the bottom half (back view). Using your second duplicate layer you will need to crop the bottom half (back view) from the top half (front view. This would make it easier to create different looks for both front and back (top and bottom of template).
2. On one of the duplicate pants layers all you have to do is white out the seams between the legs then on another layer create the split. On another duplicate of the pant layer (back view) using the magic wand crop around the back pockets. Make a copy of that layer and add a DROP SHADOW effect to it then duplicate twice. Place the protruding pockets over the back pockets on the template or wherever you wish them to be and merge the layers.
3. Create a new layer for the texturing of the garment. I choose a texture that I already had and added it to my design. With the help of the magic wand I could crop around the skirt template on the texture layer.
5. Lastly, you want to merge all the layers in order and delete layers that aren't needed in the finish product then save :)
