So with that in mind, I started adding sheers to the ladies this weekend. I think the sheers will add a new dimension to the design and give it a sense of movement. Now this isn't the first time I added sheers (I used them on Abandoned), but this is the first time I'm using them to convey movement. Since I had no idea of how to do that I got out my handy-dandy tracing paper and made some sketches of how I wanted the Ladies' dresses to sway. So much easier just tacking the paper to the Ladies and making the curves there. Once I could see the tracing paper up the whole plan of action became clearer. (Note to self: Keep making visual decisions visually )
I have two Ladies done and will get the third done this morning before work. I'll be very thankful to get them sandwiched and under my machine!
