Week 5: Setup/Sketch

The challenge this week was to make a dress that would be worn by Heidi Klum for April 2010 cover of Marie Claire.  Designers were reminded that it’s three seconds for a consumer to see and decide whether to buy an issue at the news stand, so the dress had to be eye-catching.

Can I make a confession?  I do not think I’ve ever read Marie Claire.  It’s rated in my mind as like, a hip mom fashion mag.  I read W for my pretty picture needs and I think that might be too apparent in my sketch—

I’m off to plot the pattern and poke through my fabric stash.

And YES, I know I did a cowl for week two, but this is totally a different kind, I just can’t draw the damn things.
