[Youtube] Introducing how to draw a curve with a straight ruler in 5 minutes! !!

Ojizaka has released a work video for creating a pattern.

One of the most frequently asked questions is how to draw a curve using a straight line ruler.

Is there such a way? Where did you remember etc

This time I will introduce it in 5 minutes.

Please refer to us.

Let's watch the video first


What is the purpose?

It is to save time and effort.

It may be common to use a curve ruler for curves.

But you can use a straight line ruler to draw a curve.

That way, you don't have to use a curve ruler, and you can save yourself the trouble of reselecting a curve ruler.

Also, as those who use curve rulers will understand, there are often no curve rulers that fit the curve you want to draw.

Therefore, if you make a habit of drawing a curve using a straight line ruler, you can save time and make effective use of your time.


Why can you draw a curve?

To be precise, it is a collection of straight lines, not curves.

Make it look like a curve with a fine straight line

How to draw a beautiful curve?

For those who cannot draw or see in a circle, if you draw this straight line in more detail, it will look like a curve.

Make it fine to draw a curve accurately

The straight part draws a long line, and the line is made finer from the front of the curve.

Draw finer lines for important curved lines.

The tighter the curve, the finer the line will be drawn.


What is a line?

To draw a line is to fix the ruler and move the pen.

The finer this work, the more beautiful the curve can be drawn.

The point is to make loose things roughly and tight things fine.

The details are written by moving the ruler in 1mm increments.

Once you get used to it, you will be able to do it normally.

How do you do the procedure?

Fix the ruler and draw a line, fix the pen and rotate the ruler

I don't know what you're talking about.

I know it by feeling, but it's difficult to express it in letters.

I prepared a diagram because it is very difficult to understand.

step1 Fix the ruler

step2 Put the pen on the ruler

step3 Draw a line while hitting the ruler

step4 After pulling, rotate the ruler with the pen as the base point.

This is a four-step repetitive task.

How about that?

I think it's hard to understand from the image, so I think you can understand it by actually trying it.

It's difficult at first, but after practicing for about two weeks, I think you'll be able to use it.

Let's do our best.

Where did you remember

Where did you often learn this method? Did you learn? Is often asked.

This was taught when I was a student at Bunka Fashion College's apparel technology department.

Clothes use various curves properly.

If you change the curve ruler every time, it will take time and effort.

That's why I use a straight line ruler to write the pattern.

When creating the seam allowance, the seam allowance may be drawn 1 cm outside the seam line.

In that case, use a straight ruler instead of a curve ruler.

Therefore, if you get used to the curve using a straight line ruler, you can draw a curve neatly even when you use the seam allowance.

When I was a student, I was basically taught to draw using a straight line ruler.

However, if you have a mold with a certain shape such as a sleeve, you may use a curve ruler.

I think that it is necessary to use this hen properly according to experience.


This tool is easy to use and recommended.

Lines can be drawn as 5 mm, 7 mm, 10 mm, and 12 mm.

The red line makes it easy to see even on the fabric.

It is convenient when drawing a pattern, and it is also very useful when cutting.



All Ojizaka paper patterns are created using a straight ruler.

I don't use a curve ruler at all.

First of all, if you can not draw a line well, it is recommended to use a straight line ruler while using a curve ruler first.

The ruler I'm using is transparent and has a red line.

I think this is sold at Bunka Fashion College or Okadaya in Shinjuku.

It's very flexible and can be bent to draw lines, making it a very easy-to-draw ruler.

Is it the same for any ruler if it is transparent? I feel like, but when you actually use it, the usability is different.

Choose a ruler that is easy for you to use.

At Ojizaka, we have released videos such as how to make patterns and how to make patterns.

I would appreciate it if you could refer to this as well.
