Fabric Design Inspirations 1
This is a batik fabric which may still be currently available, by Princess Mirah. The colors are interesting and unusual, though, typically, there are more similar combinations available right now. I'd certainly want to find any necessary coordinating fabrics now. I've just been trying to find "go with" fabrics for my stash, to make some lined-reversible dresses and skirts and wrap tops, and it's almost impossible to find any thing to work with fabrics from years ago. It's not just that the fashionable colors are different, the types of colors, the total palettes, are incompatible. Blued colors from one year, with a red cast from another. And worst, some years the colors are really grayed, some really bright, and they swear at each other. That is, they bring out the worst in each other.
But that's beside the point of what I wanted to say about this fabric, which is to point out the clever design. The use of both positive and negative as design elements especially. I mean the way some of the flower shapes are in the pattern color, and some in the background (whichever that is). This is an idea I want to remember.
