PUSHING PERIOD STUDIES
Looking for a light practice to warmup your design mind? Take a period piece and create a study to understand the layers and elements of the garment. Then style that piece using the motivations chapter of Talking Threads as a guide. Use your gut impressions of how to exaggerate the elements and layers. E.g. gluttony has lots of decoration, greed is very minimal, etc.
