In January this year, I went on the 'Digital Design for Fashion Fabrics' course run by Fabpad at the University of East London. I would thoroughly recommend the tutor Vicki Fong, I learnt a lot on the course and I was very pleased with Fabpad's fabric printing.
On the course I practised with a number of different images, some provided by Vicki and some of my own. But the really big decision came when I had to decide on an image for my final project. This would be printed on fabric which I hoped to make into a blouse. This is the image I eventually chose:
I 'played' with the colours, extended the water and selected part of the image for my blouse. I also created some machine stitching which I used to replace some of the leaves - well I had to have some embroidery in it didn't I?
I then used my images to fill my pattern pieces and filled in the gaps with additional images:
After many hours of tinkering and work, my blouse was finished.
Now all I need is some warmer weather so I can wear it!
