Swarovski Girl illustration

I loved the girls hair in this advert for swarovski I seen the ad in the harpers bazaar magazine and decided to have a go at illustrating it.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out despite losing my black marker pen! Although illustrating this has made me realise that I need to add a few more colours to my marker collection.
I also used a white colouring pencil to highlight the bow in the girls hair and on her chest which worked well, but its made me realise how badly I would love a white out marker to add to my collections too.

The down side to this illustration is that I feel the scanned in image is harsh where as the original is more softer looking. It's still nice and a little diffrent to my normal 'fashion' sketches.

Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
