where I encountered stripes which further reminded me of clothing ...
as distinctively depicted by Mary Cassatt, (image above from here)
and the lovely Watteau drawing in the British Museum,
and of course the dramatic drawings of Egon Schiele, which were not far from my memory because of Eirene's recent post.
Further, I found two interesting posts on stripes in Lucy Vivante's blog, here and here. Strangely enough, stripes are not a particular aspect I have pursued in my own work - except in rows of stitch/quilting, of course. I do have one recent lino print on which I tried out striped clothing of a sort, but I'm not sure I'm happy with that either.
