One of my other resolutions this year was to draw more, and I have, so just a quick post of some sketches and a little progress on other projects.
Playing with braid designs, and going back to Leoh's design, some of the basic components could be fixed, still want to make some decent pants.
I move my book around as I draw, sorry! Teoh, some thoughts on support garments for Mariah, based on something I saw on the Met online archive.
Thinking about outer garments using that double sided braid I made a sample of earlier, also a sketch of a tabard-type thing made of a traditional shell one-patch design.
I also did a thrift-store run, $30 gets you quite a bit of stuff. Most of this is for my student's 'thrift remix' project this semester, but the grey wool pants and white twill collared shirts are for my own work.
The pants have already been disassembled into chunks of fabric, I think these will become that braid-coat I sketched above.
