The second of a trio of Gazette du Bon Ton wallpapers that I made to coordinate with a batch of icons I've posted on my LJ. :D

All images are from a 1921 or 1922 issue of the French fashion publication.

These are intentionally smaller than my usual 1280x1024 because I specifically designed them to be set on "center" with a black border. ;-)

I did a project on 1920s fashion and fell in love with it. This is lovely...

I think this is my favourite of the three (although they're all gorgeous. I love fashion drawings from this era) although the black-dress lady's lack of eyes is a bit scary! =P
Your design for these, and they way you've arranged for them to be displayed, is very stylish indeed! =D

Thank you! :D But darn it, now you've got me staring at her lack of eyes. :P I hadn't noticed that before, as I was trying to leave the sketches alone, and "treat" them rather than "tweak" them like I do everything else, lol.

Aww, thank you very much! I'm glad you think so. :blush: :D

Ooops! Sorry! ;) It's still a lovely wallpaper though, eyes or no eyes! =D
