So, I have had an amazingly fun afternoon getting the hang of sketching designs onto the croquis and colouring them in. I was so bad at drawing at school, but when I just got the opportunity to doodle, I found it really therapeautic. I can see this becoming a regular part of my routine.
The sketch on the left is an outfit I love from Dolce and Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2010 collection, and the dress on the right is the first thing that came into my head when I did some free drawing. I love how the lines from the croqui haven't taken the pastel and it looks like I've drawn in some really elaborate corsetry! I am now completely in love with this dress and wondering how far my beginner's sewing skills will take me to achieving a similar effect!
