February Birthday Dress with Primroses

Well, this dress shows quite clearly why I shouldn’t put off drawing until 9:30 PM — and furthermore, why I shouldn’t try to correct mistakes at 10:15 PM. The black ribbon used to be a too-light lilac that was swallowed up by the rest of the purple; it did need to be changed, and I don’t know what I could have done better, but I do know I couldn’t have done much worse. Oh well. I like the rest of it, and I hope you all do too!

Misplaced black ribbon or no, at the moment I’m all caught up for the year with birthday dresses, which is a nice – and rather rare – feeling! February’s flower is the primrose, and the birth stone is the amethyst.

This post also shows why I shouldn’t start writing at 10:30 PM, so I think I had better stop here for now! I will try to muster up more spirit on Thursday.

  1. Same. I like everything but the black ribbon and the bottom of the skirt. Otherwise, it’s beautiful. Good job!

  2. Even though some have said that the black ribbons are a bit strange, I find that they fit perfectly. Of course, my own personal fashion sense isn’t quite of the norm, but this dress is to my liking. Beautiful work!

  3. I like the black ribbon and red lining :D It makes an otherwise conventionally fantasy-styled dress (that’s the best way I can describe it) fun and quirky!

  4. Hm, that’s right — I haven’t drawn anything short since December! It is probably because it’s not quite spring yet ^^;; I can’t draw a short February birthday dress, after all. Now something shorter is starting to sound fun..

  5. great dress. I’m a Feb. child, and I love it, black ribbon, red underskirt and all. I’m with Artemis (great name by the way, one of my favorite goddesses, actually); really good!
    looking forward to short dresses, but I do prefer long ones. mayhap it’s ’cause I’m a winter baby? I love thebirthday dresses, the January and February are my favourites

  6. This is a beautiful dress. I just barely stumbled upon your blog, and I instantly fell in love with it. I am now an avid follwer.

  7. If you tilt your screen back a bit, the black seems to be less noticeable. I like the rest of it a lot, it’s really pretty. I’m waiting for my birthday dress.. August.
