I tried out my new croquis this evening, “trying on” a couple patterns that I liked. My first one is the Colette Ceylon dress, which I love (and have in my stash), and the other is a Burda pattern from the April 2010 issue of the magazine that I found on BurdaStyle.
Try to pretend that my drawing skills with a mouse aren’t worse than a 5 year old’s. 😉
I’m not sure what’s up with the sizing on these, they were much bigger before the upload??? Anyway, after looking at these, I suspect that the Ceylon is probably not the kind of dress that would flatter my body. The Burda one might though….hubby says that he really likes the off-the-shoulder look on me. I’ve always liked it, but wasn’t sure about it on me (except my wedding dress, and I suppose that it looked fine there.)
Any suggestions on making prettier drawings with no real drawing talent? Yeah, probably not.
