The wrinkles and folds can be sharp, crisp strokes; soft, fine, flowing strokes; or thick and bold strokes. Crisp strokes express angular folds to give the garment a full silhouette. Soft, fine, flowing strokes reveal more body curves because the material usually clings to the body (see Figure 1-79).
