Oscars Archive Sketches

Fast on the heels of yesterdays Oscars dresses post, I came across these costume design sketches featured on the Oscars website. These are designs that were first sketched then made into the costume's for the actresses playing the part. 

I love costume sketches, they are much more detailed than your average fashion sketch as they need to resemble how the clothing will look once made up, like how the image looks on a vintage pattern envelope.
