To celebrate, I dressed my croquis in all the patterns that come with the book:
(Excuse the dodgy photoshop colouring, I wanted to brighten them up a bit but am waiting on my coloured pencils to arrive :P)
|Colette's Meringue Skirt|
|Colette's Taffy Blouse|
I quite like the Taffy blouse. Although I have large shoulders, I don't mind the large sleeves as they balance out my hips. I'd like to make it up in a thin and drapey cotton of some sort (does this even exist?).
|Colette's Pastille Dress|
|Colette's Truffle Dress|
|Colette's Licorice Dress|
I realise I have to work on drawing hands, feet, faces, drapey fabrics... well, let's just say I have to work on my drawing in general! But I am happy to have been able to quickly sketch up these designs and to have an idea of how they will look on my body!
Now, onto drawing the Burdastyle Handbook patterns...
