Line Development - Women's Line


Welcome to my life in Fall, 2011.


I lived and breathed my Line Development class for three months, and oh, what a crazy time it was. I wrote about it back in January, but to give more of a recap of what the class actually was, I figured I would show some pictures from my portfolio. Before this class, I couldn't sketch. I mean, I really could not articulate my ideas on pen and paper. Here is proof, and I only am linking you to this to prove a point: these awkward drawings make me cringe!

To say I was nervous for this class would be an understatement. Sewing is my strong point, not sketching! And yes, I struggled, but all the extra work make success that much sweeter.

But anyway! This is my women's wear line. I was inspired by arched doorways and hinges, and that was the driving point behind most of the pieces.



Everything in this collection was hand drawn and hand colored. I used Prismacolor pencils and a clear Prismacolor blender on top to get the partial rendering effect. Coloring was definitely my favorite part! Getting the texture, hand-drawing embossed leather and tweeds... it was such fun. Remember that jacket from up top... You'll be seeing something similar soon!


  1. Wow, these looks fantastic! Love the new layout by the way. :)


  2. Yay! A post! =) Looks great, I can't wait to see pictures of your jacket!!!

  3. These are so cool. How exciting.


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
