I had some swirlings-around in my brain of ideas for some thirties-inspired sportswear to fulfill my fantasy of being a classy, golf/tennis playing broad***.
When, what to my wandering eye should appear, this near point-for-point manifestation of my fantasy golf outfit!
Excitingly, the final project for this quarter's fashion illustration class is to create a 10-dress collection based on a movie. I was assigned "Marie Antoinette", one of my all-time favorite visual bonbons. So, I am going to create a collection of tennis and golf dresses in candy hues, with ruffles, bows and maybe a powdered wig or two. And the (pastel) argyles! Oh, the argyles...
***Other "classy broad" athletic pursuits include ballroom dance, casual cycling, horseback riding, archery (!!!) and synchronized swimming, all of which I have fantasy outfits for in mind. Archery, for example, involves a wrestler-style one-piece with a glittering sweatband and gladiator sandals.
