Here's an exercise I did from Anne DeMille Flood's excellent book "Realistic Pet Portraits in Colored Pencil" on how to get the glow of a cat's eye. Done in Prismacolor pencils on Stonehenge paper.
This is my own Pookie, in graphite pencil on Stonehenge paper.

Here are my first pieces for SWAP. The white top is Simplicity #3887 (the bruises are from paragliding!). The lower edge of the top has elastic in it just like the sleeves. It's made from a sheer cotton with raised dots on it. I'm wearing a camisole because it's pretty see-through.
Then I finished the pants, a self-drafted pattern from a pair of pants I like. These are from a wool/lycra blend.
Since I don't have a serger, here's what I did with the seams.
Onward . . . to a shirtdress, Vogue #8021. I'll do the shorter version, in black.
