Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I made a sample and did not just jump into the project making an entire garment. What advice would you give someone starting this project? MAKE A SAMPLE!!! it will make you much happier with your choice for a final garment. Some times it's hard to tell what the colors will do together and making a sample will give you a great idea of how the final project will look. Not to mention you will be on the way to your own book of samples for future projects.

What you will need

  • cotton jersey

Q&A with cupcake 50

OMG!!!!....WHAT are these colors using the Paisley Stencil, looks like 4 samples. These are a gorgeous combination, PLEASE tell!!!
cupcake 50 answered:
I dyed the fabric myself. The blue is CARIBBEAN BLUE & the red is OXBLOOD RED, both dyes are from Dharma Trading. I screen printed the paisley stencil with a silver fabric paint. I as not sure what combination I wanted to make as a skirt so I made a sample of reverse appliqu and regular appliqu. I ended up making a skirt with the red on the bottom and blue on top as an appliqu. I did some bead work on it as a nice detail. I guess I forgot to post the final garment. I will do that soon.
