Gingham Dress Sketch

I spent my morning avoiding the studio so I could figure out what I was going to make. Ta dah! It will be a gingham dress, with a white contrast band and soft pleats on the bodice with an a-line skirt. I'll probably add white single welt pockets on the skirt.

I'm feeling a bit rusty with my sketching, but just the act of putting pencil to paper helps me work through indecision. While I liked a straight skirt, I wanted the ease of an a-line for summer afternoons.
