Fashion Timeline: 1760-1810Year: ca 1800-1805
Dress: Chemise dress
Description: A transparent, white, high-waisted dress similar to drapes of ancient Greek or Roman statues. It emphasized the natural form of the body (From Kyoto Costume Institute).
And here I thought I failed at '90s clothing. Correction: I fail at Empire clothing. Drawing high-waisted dresses feels so strange after all the other pictures I did for this project o___o;;; After this project, I highly doubt I'll ever draw Empire stuff ever again... The only thing I really like about this image is the shawl the character has draped over her arm. I should've put more time into the design of the dress itself, but I just had no clue what to do with it. It's like the more simplistic a dress is, the harder it is for me to draw XDDD;;
On the other hand... I drew a turban? XDD;; I told myself I'd draw at least one turban for this project because the turban headdresses just don't get enough attention.Ignore the poorly drawn fan >___>
Edit: And I already know her nose looks odd. I couldn't think of how else to draw it >O>;;;
