Dress 1 in 28 Dress Challenge

“Shirley”, 7″(h) x 5″(w), watercolor on 140 lb. cold press paper

It’s dress 1 in the 28 dress challenge. For the month of February I am going to attempt a watercolor dress illustration every day.

Here is a dress that a very dear lady gave me. In fact she celebrated her 80th birthday in September. Her mother actually made it for her. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the special occasion she wore it for. I’ll have to ask her.

It is made out of this lovely, hot pink, silk dupioni fabric with sequins around the cuffs and collar and a little key hole detail in the center of the bodice. My painting doesn’t do it justice. It’s a very spectacular dress. I’ll have to give it another try someday.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow is another day and another dress.
