Customize It | Take a simple dress pattern and make it your own with custom printed fabric. This flirty & fun 50s-style dress was made from custom printed silk crepe de Chine. Alison (our Creative Director) designed this acid yellow and purple print to try out Spoonflower.com, a wonderful website where you can upload and create your own custom printed fabric! Much to our excitement, Spoonflower recently added silk to their fabric choices, they also offer many types of cotton such as voile, knit, sateen and twill.
A big thanks to 3rd Ward, where this photo shoot took place, and to our intern Jamie, for blowing bubbles like a pro!
