I haven’t sketched clothing in a very long time. So why now? I’m not really sure other than I think it’s a good idea to keep your hand in and not let a skill you have or wish to hone go by the wayside. I don’t have an opportunity to really sketch these days as the time involved is great and the time available is short. And what does this have to do with Rustic Chic? Again, not really sure. On the other hand fall will be here in no time (may not seem like it just coming off the first heatwave of summer) and I’ve always been drawn to the swash and buckle of 40’s movies. Maybe that’s Rustic Chic reason enough to dream of wools, leathers and suedes.
