Tidbit of information for the day... I sketch dresses for fun.
Here is one that I am entering in a design contest for Shabby Apple.
I've been really appreciating all things vintage and realizing just how classy and timeless the 50's were. Seriously, I love watching old movies just for the beautiful clothes that they wore. Actresses like Audrey Hepburn and Dorris Day, I believe, are more memorable for what they wore than what they actually did in their films. To me, that says a lot about the dresses.
So what color would this AMAZING dress be???
A warm cream with dark cherry embellishments.
I think that I would want to keep the vintage feel, so I think that an old-fashioned solid broadcloth would hold up nicely. The darts and pleats would also do up nicely in a tight broadcloth.
I will put up more info on the contest later. :)
Peace and Blessings.
