drawing Challenge- Dress



Patrice is the host of the drawing challenge this weekend with the theme "Dress"
For my drawing I used a photo of an antique dress I had awhile back- with hand drawn detail.
I was thinking about the dress as an artifact and the many layers like sediment the lines represent. History and coverings- obviously made with love and care for some little child.
Please visit Patrice's Blog! for more dress' and have a great weekend :)

  3. Kristen, oh I like this! When I see handmade dresses at thriftshops it's all I can do not to buy each and every one of them. As you say so much love was put into their making. xo Carole

  5. How pretty ! The design of detail lines is always girl's dream.It is also lovely to see the contrast with the wire hanger. I like it.
