Living Fashion: 1842 taupe dress 2.0

Living Fashion: 1842 taupe dress 2.0

Living Fashion is a series in which I draw historical clothing on active people, inspired by Draw This Dress by artists Emily Carroll and Vera Brosgol.

So… there was that unfortunate 1.0 version, which I didn’t like even when I posted it. But I have re-done it! And it is better!

The dress is the same, but I changed the model, the action, and the setting – an English moor, ooooh.

The dress is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. I’m not crazy about the color, but that bertha collar sure is dramatic. I also like the two short layered sleeves, and how the dress is generally un-gaudy.
