The Peacock: It must be the most fashionable bird ever (and to think it’s a male!). They have a beautiful plumage which is used to attract females.
Oh I’m attracted, alright. The peacock’s feathers make a good inspiration for fashion. I thought of sketching a dress that looks like a tail, so a high low hem is perfect.

Ordinary Drawing Book
HB Pencil (for the draft sketch)
Black Pen (for the final outline)
The design is also similar to a skirt (without the tail) hand-sewn by Sarahness, a close friend of mine. She was aiming for a peacock-like skirt using a soft tulle fabric. Here’s a picture of the skirt before it was finished.
