A place for our research and thoughts
Wonderful sketches!- what I had in mind.
I prefer the burnt orange of the drapery as opposed to the green. Though a different shade of red might be nice too.Maybe we can discuss colours in detail when I come to the studio on Monday/
Also is that the final fabric? I was imagining the dress to be shiner- or is that just the photo?
For the Dido bodice: is it possible to do as we spoke on the phone, the initial layer is on the corset for practibility purposes and the gathered fabric (same colour/fabric?) is another layer attached as if part of the bodice itself.The back drapery: attached as part of dress from the shoulders (e.g sack back) or attached only in certain places (e.g on shoulder and hip in manner of nymphs)? may be we can discuss that to.As I said though, sketches are great!
re Sorceress:Could the sleeves be even fatter? Is there enough material for actress to cover chemise in front as she walks...?
What about hood from first of the 'Sorceress sketches' in other blog which is closed and then she can open toggle to reveal the low-cut idea hers? Is that possible?
