A Few Clothing Sketches...and one unfinished piece

I thought I would share with you a few clothing sketches that I made back in 2009...wow!  That seems so long ago now.  I was living in Ohio and was starting to dream of making my own clothing for my little one.  I got a little carried away with these as the home I was visiting had beautiful renderings of Victorian ladies and their exquisite dresses of that era.  So, inspired, I took charcoal to paper and here is what I designed.

I like this.  A little more of a modern approach as back in the Victorian days, there was no such thing as a bare arm.

This one just looks comfy.  I was envisioning something that could be played in while not worrying about if it were to be stained.

Can you tell I'm a fan of ruffles???


Looks like a circus tent!

This might be more "flapper" era.

Oh...and I found this unfinished piece.  I completely forgot about it.  I started it back in 2006 and I should really finish it.  It was going to be a collage of sorts...but now I don't remember the direction I was going.  It's sharpie and color pencil.

Until next time....

Love the leg of mutton sleeves on that last dress sketch! When I was presenting the school Christmas play aged 9 (a LONG time ago), the play was Scrooge, so I had to have a long dress. My mum made me one with leg of mutton sleeves that I thought was the height of glamour!!

My mother used to put me in pageants as a child and that sleeve was all the rage. Bigger the better!!!
