self-portrait // sketchbook // lineart

Hey everyone!

   I forgot to post this self-portrait from my last sketchbook, but May 12th isn't that long ago, right?

   I tried a different angle than last time, and I think it resembles me better... what do you think?

   Though I haven't posted much artwork lately, that doesn't mean I haven't been drawing. I filled my second sketchbook and have started on my third, who's size exposes it's own challenges. Hopefully, I'll post something about my second sketchbook in the near future.

But, you never know with me :)

sewing project // frozen // anna's coronation dress

Hey everyone!

   I know I haven't been posting much, hence this update post...

   I don't know if I've ever told you, but Willow and I have been taking sewing lessons for a while now, and we've finally come to the point where we can sew princess dresses (with much assistance, of course).

   Originally, I wanted to do Cinderella's dress from the new movie, but Willow wanted to do Belle's dress at the same time, and seeing that we still haven't got a good look at it in the trailers, we though it would be better to wait and do them together.

   Anna's coronation dress is going to be a tough one, especially compared to Elsa's coronation dress, which Willow is doing. There's a thousand patterns on the skirt. I'm sure mine will take much longer than hers to complete.

   At the moment, I am working on her bustier, which is velveteen. I have all of the fabric, and have cut out most of the applique.

Pattern wise, I'm using this Simplicity pattern for adults.

Look at that. Just look at all of those designs on her skirt.


I have a bad feeling about this (jinx!).
