Original Textile Print -- Cape

Added Jan 17, 2016

I’m a textile design student. I used Spoonflower.com to print one of my designs onto fabric.

I used store-bought upholstery fabric for the shell, and my print design on organic cotton sateen for the lining. I made piping with grey/blue scrap fabric to accentuate style lines.

I altered the collar to have a softer, more “drapey” shape. I added welt pockets to the front. The top of the pattern pieces for the shoulders were way too baggy without shoulder pads, so I trimmed them down to make them less boxy.

    I love your fabric design, and what you’ve done with the collar. The whole outfit, with trousers and top look looks amazing. Well done!

    FABULOUS! Your fabric is gorgeous. I LOVE what you did to the collar, though I can’t quite visualize how you did it. Making the under-collar and adding piping from your printed fabric to the cape really makes it stand out. Great job!
