Daily Drawing Challenge Day 9: The Trapeze Dress

I’ve been thinking about trapeze dresses recently. They haven’t been in fashion for a long time, but suddenly the thought of a simple shift that hangs from the shoulders to a fall in a flurry of folds around the knees sounds really fresh and lovely, maybe not as new and exciting as they did when they hit the scene  in the early 1990’s, but new none the less.

I did this drawing for my daily challenge rather late in the day directly on the Cintiq.

    LOVE trapeze dresses, LOVE your sketch!
