When I looked at my finished croquis last week, I didn't recognise it as my body...somehow it's not as I imagine myself. I think there might be a disconnect between how I actually look and how I think I look. Interesting (if a bit self-absorbed!).
I wondered if this was because all the curves so apparent in profile were missing. Not any more!
I think this gives a much more accurate representation of my body including the areas I have difficulty fitting.
Just for fun, I tried some of the styles I'd blocked on to my front view croquis on this one:
I think some of them look quite different in profile and probably more as they will look when worn.
I don't think I'll make a sketch of everything I sew but I think using both croquis might be useful for 'trying out' patterns I'm not sure will suit me.
So there you have it - would you make a sideways croquis?
Happy sewing, 'til next time!
