A Lockdown Dream

On 26/06/2021, Sydney went into lockdown. With only 4 hours to decide on a creative outlet for the (then predicted) next 2 weeks, I took to my sketchbook and began designing a dream dress. Working on it for the next few months, it became a child's vision of a princess; elegance and confidence tightened with a ribbon and adorned with glittery red roses. It has no significant purpose, no life changing element, but this dress embodies a dream of a fantasy I once had, and inspires me to persevere with all the little things in my life.
