Just imagine...

I have started on buffing up my portfolio because all it has in it are school projects. Blah.  I am only working on preliminary sketches so far but I wanted to share what i've been working on

I was inspired by a million different things (as always).  I am loving the breton stripe. Think: classic Parisian silhouette with edge.  I wanted these girls to have an attitude but to be comfy.  I love stripes so I wanted to use those for my patterns to mix with tweed, fur and silk. 

 
sorry about the picture quailty! I promise to start scanning....
 
Girl 1: Breton Strip top with Harem pants, cowl neck scarf and Awesome bag
Girl 2: Her favorite men's dress shirt with highwaisted tweed pants
Girl 3: Silk dress w/mirco-pleated skirt paired with a striped cardi + belt!
 
I am unsure of the middle girls outfit.  Imagine her vest like this fabulous furry vest:
 
 I feel like that makes a difference. But, your comments and suggestions are welcome.  
This may sound weird but I'm excited to draw all the technical flat sketches for these designs! 
It just started raining. Wish I could stay home and draw......

Girl 3 captured my heart! As for the fur vest, I love it - it would definitely add texture and interest. Srsly, fur is fun!

I agree with the fur. What color fur? Long or short?

Before I read your caption, the very first thing I thought was Parisian!

Yay for Comments! I was thinking a brown tan color fur sort of like in the fur in the picture..... or light grey could be cool. Mid-length fur(which could possibly be a reflection of my indecisive-ness)
