A while back, I posted about my first attempts to learn fashion illustration. I’ve made some progress, although Ken reckons I still need to work on faces (and he’s right!)
I’ve recently started copying illustrations from pattern envelopes and keeping these illustrations on my noticeboard above my sewing machine, to act as inspiration while I’m sewing. Some recent projects:
The cat trousers (not from a pattern envelope, as I drafted these myself from a standard trouser block – on the side are swatches of fabric for the trousers and the lining)
I can do faces, but only if I copy them from somewhere. This was a copy of an illustration I saw at the Design Musuem’s Drawing Fashion exhibit earlier this year.
