I've always loved...loved...fashion illustration. In fact, when I was little I wanted to grow up and be a fashion designer for this very reason---not so much the clothes, but the drawings of clothes.
I decided to try a hand at it last night as I begin planning my outfit for our department's annual Beaux Arts Ball taking place this weekend. This year's theme is based on Maurice Sendak's beautiful book "Where the Wild Things Are". Lucky for me (sewing isn't exactly my strong suit), this means I can get by with ripping rather than hemming.
