So, I will be building the ticking-stripe corset. It will be the focal point of an outfit, paired up with a jacket and skirt made out of lightweight, dark colored denim. The skirt will simply be a calf length flared skirt; the jacket is looking like it will be a cropped military jacket. I'll pair this up with a straw gambler and natural leather accessories. I worked on some sketches tonight.
Art behind the cut.....
I did a few sketches last month, and a few more in the interceding weeks, but nothing new or revolutionary since (despite having said to myself over and over that I would take the time to draw several designs to select from). Let me show you them:
I apologize for the quality of the images; I've been struggling to get the pictures out of my sketchbook and into the Intertubes, so tonight I took photos of them with my crappy point and shoot camera. Usually I take half a dozen photos and select the best; I have also corrected these a bit for contrast, as my style of drawings are easily touched up. The three above, as well as the next one, were done in my large sketchbook in August while I was housesitting for my parents
I did just a few more in a nice little sketchbook given to me for my birthday. The first of them is three views of a bustle dress that I thought would come out nicely in the purple boucle I've been hoarding. The first view, from the side, shows a skirt and shirtwaist; the second two views show the same skirt and waist worn with a vest.
