draw this dress

My friend Emily and I have been challenging each other to draw period and vintage clothes based on photo reference, and the results are cataloged in a tumblr for as long as we keep it up. Check it out!

I want to 'like' and 'love' and 'fave' and 'holy cow this is so awesome' everything you two have drawn there so much that I might have to start a tumblr?

This is a super cool project. I love seeing all the pretty dresses and the characters you two conjure up to go with them.

Such a cool idea!
I have such a soft spot for vintage stuff.. Almost as soft as the spot I have from being dropped repeatedly during childhood.

Your works are so cute. I love your stuff.

May you say to me what kind of tools you use to draw?
Real paintbrush? Wacom pen? Do you sketch directly con Photoshop or something else?

Thank you very much.

everything looks so great! so charming - not just the garments, but the poses, characters and colors, too!
i love your style, AND vintage... wonderful combo.

i realized how awesome vintage can be back in 2004, in an international exhibit in Brazil documenting 100 years of fashion - this is the best link to photos i could find, maybe there's some inspiration there:,,OI13511-EI1119,00.html

looking frward to more stuff :D

I'm really digging your most recent contribution of the Lanvin dress with the two torso girl. Is there any chance one might be able to purchase a print?
