To create an illustration using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator you need a scanner, digital tablet, and of course the programs.
First of all you draw a design, this could be a women dressed. You scan this draw. Then import this design from the scanner to the program Photoshop.
To clean your hand draw design from the scanner to the software you must do:
Menu – Image – Adjustment – Levels.
With that you must adjust the level black and white of the draw to clean the image.
It is convenient to scan your illustration in color mode then you must change to gray scale, that is Menu – Image – Mode – Grayscale.
So you have the illustration in black and white.
Go to the layers and include a new layer above which color must be white so that when you erase the illustration to delimit the lines of the draw, you can clean it totally.
Then the illustration is clean and ready to be colored.
To add color you must create layers with each part of the draw.
For example: the skin color is in a layer which is relevant to be name.
The hair also must have its own layer with the name hair.
And so on.
Go to the original design layer and defined the lines.
Use the tool bucket to color the image.
You can scan a fabric or import from the internet.
You must reduce noise, that is important to have a perfect fabric to use for create the texture and pattern you prefer.
You can bring to the illustration with a brush with low opacity and low flow shadows which do the effect more realistic.

COULD BE SAID THAT DRAPING FABRICS ON A BODY OR MANNEQUIN IS WHAT VIVIENNE WESTWOOD SAID “LEARN ACTING”.
Draping must also have to do with creating ideas directly on a mannequin. Draping is a technique that has been used since a long time in the past.
As John Galliano said “It is basically related to engineering, rather than anything else. It's about finding the limits of what is possible to drape fabric body. Everything evolves. Nothing strictly defined."
The great dressmakers of the history use that technique to create different silhouettes. It could be describe as a process similar to sculpt the body with fabric.
Who do they create those silhouettes? Creating volume. Then we have that to create a volume in fashion have to be excess of fabric on the garment.
