Small prints make me queasy, and sewing only with plain fabrics can be a bit boring. I’ve often painted my own fabrics in the past, but have now treated myself to a Bobbinhood ‘silk-screen’ printer so I can achieve a whole range of new pattern print sizes with a sleek finish!
Delpozo’s pre-fall 2018 bold print inspired me, it’s large, loud, graphic and somewhat floral but also not.
Here’s the printing process in full action. I chose to print once the main pieces were assembled, so the positioning was easier. Details and hemming I did afterwords, in case the printing would fail!
Here’s the dress, I’m very pleased with it, it’s an easy to wear cotton jersey, I can dress it down with sneakers or up with pumps. It looks fancy but is as comfy as an old XXL T-shirt.
The pattern of the dress is Lekala 4719 but since the dress is from jersey I did not need to add a zipper. I haven’t made the belt yet, I think I will for when I wear it more formal…
