Join Robin Schneider for an in-depth discussion in this video More ways to create ruching, part of Illustrator for Fashion Design: Creating Brushes.
Now you can take the same ruching brush that you made in the previous video, and…we can adjust the scale of it, and use it in some other places on the flat.…So, let's take this brush, and scale it down, so we can use it over here on the sleeve.…All I really need to do is just drag it with my Shift key, and scale it down, but…I'm going to make sure that my Stroke weight stays at 0.25.…I want to get this scale down to a size that's going to be appropriate for my…sleeve, which is going to be something like this.…
Make sure the Stroke is still 0.25.…Now that I look at it, I think the stroke may be a little bit heavy for this…particular thing in this scale,…so let's go ahead and make it even smaller than 0.25.…Let's make it 0.15, and we can go ahead and make a brush out of this.…Just like before, we want the alignment to sit at the top of the ruching, not at the bottom,…so we're going to go ahead and do the same little trick.…I'm going to just squish this to shorten up the ruching a tiny bit.…
