For my first Fashion Illustration class, the teacher asked us to draw a fashion figure free hand. I have NEVER drawn anything resembling a fashion croquis EVER in my life, so you would understand why I got all nervous. (Well, that reason stands aside from overdosing on a venti cup of joe.) So anyhow, I start sketching and come up with the first outfit (and probably the easiest to draw) that came to mind. I didn’t really intend for it to come out like a 1920s couture gown, it just sort of fell into place. Happily, my teacher said, and I quote: “Actually, it works!” A jolt of relief and a few smiles later, I tweeted it. Oh yes, I bragged. So sue me.
…and after you check out/criticize my drawing, check out my awesome photography skillz (with a z!). WHUTUP.

I was supposed to wear a slim tie with this outfit and tuck it into my skirt, but I left all my ties in Cebu. I attempted to use a black satin ribbon instead, but it was too short, and too awkward. Oh well!
I’m super having fun so far. Hope everything else goes well for me and for everyone else! Ta!x
