Gone are the days where we have to settle. And by settle, I mean, you can picture the perfect fabric for a project, but you scour your local big-box stores and you search your fingers off online without success. No more.
We have the option of creating a our very own prints on fabric! This is just what Audrey of Skirt Fixation did with this stunning fabric. Audrey took a floral radiograph print, and turned it into a design to be printed on fabric.There was an option to choose from 26 kinds of fabric, including what I chose, a linen/silk blend! It was like nothing I've ever worked with before, so it was fun to try something new.
Audrey also had the option of different colors...but who needs options when you have black and white. ;) I finally had the perfect project for this lace-cut zipper, since it was more of a cream color than white, I pulled this out to do an external zipper.I felt like it needed a little bit of a border, and had this romantic-esque ruffled lace that was up to the task of border patrol. I didn't use a pattern, just gathered up that beautiful fabric, added a nice, wide waistband, and voilá!
Of course I wore a petticoat underneath for a bit of oomph.
You'll want to take a look at what everyone else is creating on this fun Floral Radiograph Blog tour over at Audrey's (plus there's a giveaway going on!
And with that, I will curtsy and Scout will go out with a flare.
