So, we’re a little late today and I am sorry about that, but as I’ve said a few times around here. School comes first. Flora’s costumes are often challenging, because I like to have lots of reference images before I try to draw anything. I’m always looking for more information on the right era of costumes for the paper doll.

The ballgown on the left is based on a plate from 1812. It is one of the costumes I have wanted to draw for a long time, but it was a challenge for me. I love the yellow trim. Her promenade costume is based on a different plate from 1814. The popularity of the ruffs around the necks of costumes in this era are very interesting. I don’t know if I like the look, but I feel like I have to include them as a matter of keeping things accurate.

    I think you got the links mixed up lol. I clicked on the first one and got ruffles, and the second one had yellow trim. I’m just relieved they weren’t both ruffles. I know I don’t like that look! Don’t like it on Elizabethan costumes, and it looks even more ridiculous on this sort. Sort of like painiers… but less ridiculous lol
