A sight lovely to see



EDITORIAL NOTE: as much I love this piece for it's own merits, I'd also like to point out that I drew this three years ago and no longer consider it to be a valid attempt at a historical Jasmine!  I have plans to redo it one way or the other, just stepping in to make that clear for the time being.

Considering said inaccuracies, please do not share this piece when sharing the historical princesses!  You're welcome to share it for the purposes of commentary and critique, but I don't consider it a valid entry in the series anymore.

Okay, these are getting more and more complicated, but this one was fun.

Let's be frank- Aladdin is hardly an exercise in historical accuracy. Combine that with Claire knowing veeeery little about historical* Middle Eastern clothing before starting on Jasmine, and you've got yourself a few days of research before digging into this thing.

It took some effort to track down some midriff-baring outfits but BY GEORGE I DID, thank you Persian fashion plates. I now know what sirwal are called (besides Hammer pants), and that Persian women wore some pretty sweet little jackets that I wish I owned.

*seemed silly to say "pre-Islamic" when I ended up researching pre- and post-Islamic fashion.
