When you have been begging your Mum for years to let you design your own fabric and she finally says YES! 🥳
Holly photographed her ink artwork then put it in Illustrator to create a repeat pattern. We found that photographing it worked better than scanning as it captured reflection in the metallic bits. After that I helped her play with the scale to get an idea of how it would look on a garment. We used an illustration of the size 7 embrace togs to make sure it would work well for smallish patterns as well as bigger ones!
Holly knew that 1 colourway was simply not enough so she recoloured her artwork to add her dream colours!
Then she had the l-o-n-g (not that long) wait to see her samples!
The day her fabric samples arrived. 🥳 She loved them and said everything was just perfect and she wouldn't change a thing! Always nice when they are right first go!
Holly had a very specific list of demands for what she wanted made with each of her fabrics. First up on her list was a portrait dress in green! She took one look in the mirror and said "WOAH, I have never worn anything in these colours before, I am like a bright shiny star!"
