Description

I love this fabric. It’s ‘neverending box of crayons’ by weavingmajor on spoonflower and it is just so fun. Sure to bring out anyone’s inner artist. I’ve been wanting a digital print fabric for a while, and this print with all its colours just jumped out at me when I saw it.

The pattern is the drape dress in ‘she has a mannish style’ (love the name of that pattern book) by Yuko Takada. It has been shortened to t-shirt length and the neckline narrowed to reduce the draping. The hem and arms have all been hand finished so that no thread is visible to distract from the print. The neckline has been faced so that when the top drapes the print is still visible, rather than the cream back of the fabric. This makes the top a little heavier, as does the fact that spoonflower’s jersey is fairly heavy, so it has an almost structured drape, which is a nice little semi-contradiction. The looser fit and use of jersey also help to reduce the potential childishness of the print.
