Adventures in Virtual Fashion Design: My First Men’s Shirt and My First Women’s Skirt

This is the first blogpost in a new series that I’m calling Adventures in Virtual Fashion Design, where I will document my journey to becoming a full-fledged fashion designer in Sansar.

I have a subscription to the CGElves tutorials, and I have worked through the first two tutorials in their Marvelous Designer Intro and Beginners Course. And Debi Baskerville was kind enough to point me to a very useful beginner’s tutorial by Lori Griffiths:

Using the Lori Griffiths tutorial, I was able to create my first garment using Marvelous Designer, a very simple men’s top:

I uploaded my shirt (and a thumbnail image) to Sansar and here is my avatar wearing my new shirt in Lookbook. (I notice that the tiny measurement numbers appeared on this garment by accident. I still have to figure out how to remove those before I export.)

And here I am wearing the first thing that I ever made using Marvelous Designer, in my own experience Ryan’s Garden. I’m so proud of myself! All in all, it took me about three hours from start to finish.

UPDATE 1:31 p.m.: Using Lori’s tutorial I also made my very first article of women’s clothing, a very simple skirt. Here’s what it looks like:

Not bad for an absolute beginner, eh? I have decided to give this skirt away as a freebie on the Sansar Store, as the very first item in my RSVF line of clothing:

UPDATE Dec. 27th: I have decided to take the women’s skirt down off the Sansar Store after only a couple of days. I have learned more about how to use Marvelous Designer, and frankly, I can create a better-looking skirt now! So anyone who did buy this particular skirt, has bought a piece of RSVF fashion history! Maybe you can get it into a museum somewhere 😉
