I am starting to design clothes and would like to know which program is the best for designing clothes? I need to be able to draw patterns, 3D, draw lines and so forth.

Thanks in advance!

You might want to check this out: https://www.adobeforfashion.com/ I'm not sure about the 3D part. What do you expect to do in 3D? Can you show examples?

So you can see the sides, back and front all at once, if that makes sense. Just a 3D model of a shirt for example. Ill check the link out. And thanks you.

Adobe Illustrator? Do you have it yourself? And what do you mean by Charactor animated?

Curious Labs "Poser" 3D figure and design software might still be available.  "Digital Art Zone" plug-ins of pre-built models ( i.e., Michael and Victoria ) along with a "Motions" CD ( per Pubperfect.com ).  Illustrator may be a solution for creating patterns, but not sure how that would morph into 3D 360 approaches.

There's the Cineware plugin for Illustrator.

But you need models in order to use it.

Not sure about your skills, but creating realistic looking 3D models of clothing (fabric) belongs to the rather difficult tasks in 3D.

You might want to maybe take some classes on how to do fashion design.

Or what is this about? Designing labels for t-shirts?

You should take some fashion design classes. There have already been links in this thread.

Each industry does things a certain way in in order to get your stuff produced you will need to know what exactly to deliver.

Right.  I also thought you wanted to show the design in a motion 3D animation.  Illustrator will work on 2D artwork that mimics 3D ( i.e., gradients, shading, highlights, shadows, etc. ).

You will certainly want Illustrator or similar for lots of things

Eg, see Sew Heidi channel on Youtube

Sew Heidi - YouTube

But  for creating patterns, and grading you may want a more specialist software

but all are very expensive, made by  Gerber, Lectra, and Optitex etc

You could try free open source

Valentina

Vdeo tutorials available , eg

Im not looking at anything expensive. I have literally started some clothing designs and right now I am just sketching on paper.

A lot of this comes down to the "why" before the "how." Why do you want to use software for this over pen and paper? Lots of pros still start their designs using analog tools because that's what gets their ideas out most quickly, so it's still totally valid to sketch your ideas that way if it works well for you. However, if you want to create slick, polished designs to present in a professional context, you could absolutely use Illustrator or Photoshop to draw them out. The links above would definitely give you options to explore.

As an in-between, what about drawing on a tablet using Adobe Sketch or Adobe Draw? Those are more limited versions of Photoshop and Illustrator that focus entirely on the most intuitive sketching tools, and that plus an iPad or similar mobile device makes for a great digital sketchbook. You won't be able to create 3D models on either of these, though, but since fashion illustration is commonly 2D anyway you'd still have a professional presentation.

Yes. this is very true. The thing is that we are producing them abroad. So we need to design send them files. But totally agree on drawing them first.

It would be worthwhile for you to take a fashion design course. The thread already contains links to such courses. Getting your stuff produced requires you to know what exactly you need to deliver in every industry.
