draped figures

I've made this drawing from some of Edweard Muybridge's photographs of the human figure in motion. These photos were first published in 1887. I'm especially interested in those that show wrapped women. This research is for my Opus degree - I'm studying figure drawing at present.

Dear Judy,
I am one of the regular visitor who
hide in the shadows but I love your work and the drawing of the draped women is lovely. As it is important to your work I would like
to ask-are you familiar with Clyde Connell's work. She was a painter turned sculptor here in northwest Louisiana and she did a particular study of woman called -Bound Women-
the sculptures were made of wood but bound with linen(I believe)anyway just thought her 'view' of woman 'draped' would be interesting to you.
Keep up the good work!
Kindest regards,Missy from the bayou

Thanks Missy
I will look up this artist's work as it does seem pertinent and I have not heard about it before.
