I have made a few sketches. I will update this post as soon as I can bring them to school and scan them.
Update: Here they are.
The first sketch is roughly shaped like the hat in the fashion plate. I tried purple flowers on this one and decided that they did not work.
|I don't know why she looks so startled. Or sad, what facial expression would you call this? Disappointed?|
