I have been in love with this bikini top all summer long! It was fun painting it and making the black animal print stripes run into the background.
The modern day bikini was first introduced July 5, 1946 by designer Louis Reard.
Check out these links for more history about the bikini:
This is an illustration of the swimsuit my mom wore in the late 1960s. I think I’ve even seen it on an episode of Mad Men. The character Megan Draper was wearing it.
It was hard to decide where to begin with The 100 Project, but I found this A-Line dress by Dolce & Gabanna and knew I had to illustrate it! (It also happens to be No. 1 in my guide book for this project.)
This particular drop, dead red A-Line has a cute gold embroidered bow, flap pockets, and what I really, really love…cheetah print lining! For me it’s all in the details!
In general, A-Line dresses are narrower at the top and flare out gently toward the bottom forming and “A” shape. It is a style that can be worn by any body type and will be super flattering. A must for every woman’s closet!
You won’t need much to pull off an A-Line dress. A few bold pieces of jewelry and some super cute shoes or boots and off you go!
