Fashion sketches..

I've always loved the way fashion designers draw the stylized, long and lovely bodies  ....and then design gowns for them.  As a kid I used to love cut outs and would often try to make them some additional dresses ... nothing like this, of course, but I loved giving it a go.



















Maybe I should have had a class or two on how to draw the bodies ... what fun that would have been, but, even for my doll making I never did do what I was supposed to do most of the time.  And, my bodies were never as short and stumpy as the pattern indicated.
I did watch a tutorial or two on the net, but, then, I always get impatient and think ... too slow ... I hate to have to actually learn some things... just want to "do"..so I try it on my own a lot of the time.  I'm definitely a "fly by the seat of my pants" type person some days.... okay, most days I guess...

The originals are by Monique Lhuillier... she does some beautiful things.... have seen her drawings around ... and I love them.  So..I figured I could print some off... sit down with a pencil and eraser and try to get something similar for the first page of my new class ledger.

Some inspiration!  ... ... here is my effort....very happy with her, although, any of you artists will probably notice all sorts of things I don't see ... just don't burst my little happy balloon okay?    hahahha...
