Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Natalija Jagarinec, and welcome to my course, Creating Men's Formal Wear with Marvelous Designer. I'm a 25-year-old graphic designer from Slovenia currently working at Visual Development as a graphic designer and 3D modelling artist. Marvelous Designer is one of the many 3D clothing simulation programs out there that can really be helpful in your pipeline. If you're an interior designer architect or fashion designer, you can benefit from this approach since working on such projects involves tight deadlines where you need to produce high-end results fast. This course offers intermediate knowledge since sewing formal wear is a bit more complicated but also provides enough information and has a steady pace for beginners to pick up. The topics that you will cover include sewing techniques, simulating tricks, and getting acquainted with a wide spectrum of tools available in Marvelous Designer. This will come in handy when you will later on tackle your own garments or try to simulate even more difficult ones. Either way, you will have the necessary knowledge to achieve the final effect. The course also covers texturing and posing of the characters that will also save you time and produce a visually appealing result. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Marvelous Designer and have a basic understanding of creating very simple clothing. The course's final outcome is also a great starting point for further sculpting or refining your model in other 3D software. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Marvelous Designer with the Creating Men's Formal Wear course at Pluralsight.

Creating a Formal Shirt
Hi everyone! My name is Natalija, and welcome to the course, Creating Men's Formal Wear. Our first piece that we will be creating is the shirt since all of the other pieces of clothing will come on top of it. Now during this process, we will become acquainted with the MD interface, its avatars, and the whole idea of sewing and simulating clothing. May this image serve as a reference and inspiration for our working process. During our workflow, we will be drawing our attention to the basic shape of a shirt and how to create a wrinkly look on the sides that give it the final touch. We will learn how to sew on buttons, thus achieving a realistic look as shown on the image. Next, we will shift our attention to the upper part that consists of a piece called a band that indicates the piece of fabric going around the neck standing upwards and giving our collar definition. The second piece sewn on to it is the collar itself with the collar tips at the end. After finishing the sleeves, we will also create cuffs around the wrists. Now if you're new to Marvelous Designer, I would like to emphasize that this software relies heavily on real-life sewing techniques by drawing 2D patterns that are sewn on to each other to create the final fabric. Now that being said, if you're unsure about how a pattern for a shirt looks like, you can always Google something along the lines of shirt sewing pattern, which will give you similar images to the one you see now. You do not need to know what all of the lines mean, but it is a good idea to give you a rough picture of what you should be going for. We will also be creating very similar patterns to create our shirt, so you can always come back to this image while you're working to remind yourself. So in our next clip, we will jump into Marvelous and get to work.
