Azalea by Adelie-Helene Azalea by Adelie-Helene
So for anyone who hasn't read Heather Dixon's lovely book, "Entwined," then I highly recommend it. This is her heroine, Azalea, the eldest of twelve princesses. In the wee hours of a morning during last spring's finals week, I felt the urge to draw and this was what I'd read most recently. As a persnickety historical costumer, I loved all her descriptions of Victorian-esque clothes and customs, and felt inspired to try my hand at a ca. 1850s mourning dress for Azalea. I'm not sure if white undersleeves and collars were mourning appropriate, but I liked the look ;P

Well, enough rambling. This has been sitting on my computer finished since May and only my laziness has prevented me from uploading it before now.

Oh, lovely!

And you nailed the costuming, late 1850s, early 1860s
