Dolce and Gabbana S/S 11 RTW

Wow, I'm a bit blown away and surprised by this collection. Surprised because it's not the usual D&G sexed up woman, but way more demure and feminine, with the use of monochrome, especially white and the lace and broderies. The short little shift dresses, extremely short but manages to avoid being slutty simply by the use of lace and it being white/cream/ivory. And, I guess with the whole GFC thing, it makes financial sense to use a limited pallette.
I'm loving the tiny cropped jackets too.

Drawing Faces...................

These two ladies I drew for the latest design assignment. I took my time and used a 0.03 fineliner for the face details and outlines and pencils and markers for the rest. It's funny because when I started the classes I told myself I couldn't draw and especially not faces. The markers made a world of difference. I think I was scared to use them previously, but so glad I did and I'll definitely be using them from now on. They are quite pricey but so worth it. The girl on the right reminds me of the actress Melissa George!!

Shorts I Made..............

This is the latest garment I've made. I used cotton/nylon ripstop fabric. I'm very pleased with the end result. They fit perfectly too. I also drafted the pattern.
