This month I want to show off a particular project. One that started as a series of sketches and eventually went through several iterations before I came up with my final sketch and dress!
I first started these sketches a full year ago! If you go back to my In the Sketchbook- July 2016 you can see the original post.
While I really like both of these ideas and still would like to make them someday, they just were not right for the fabrics. Every time I picked up the fabric and played with it I was so uninspired to turn them into either of these designs!
So, I went back to the drawing board so to speak and continued sketching more ideas and I came up with this. This felt so much more inspired and less forced and more importantly it got me excited and I could not wait to get this beautiful design made into a garment.
Make sure to stop by Wendy Grossman of Couture Counsellor to see what lovely sketches and ideas she is working on. Please feel free to share your sketches and ideas!
