I couldn’t be more excited about the release of Illustrator’s new Join Tool in the latest CC 2014 update (version 18.1.0)! This is an essential tool for drawing fashion flats since often we draw half of the garment, reflect and copy it, and then join the anchor points down the middle.
This tool takes the work out of joining paths that are overlapping or have gaps and does all the work for you! Watch this Illustrator video tutorial that I did in collaboration with Laura Coyle of Illustratoring (do yourself a favor and browse her site, she’s an amazing illustrator and has a knack for teaching Illustrator) to see how it works.
