Placement Prints

I was at the new Mood Fabric store in LA with three sewing pals early this year.  It's a pretty impressive place.  If you haven't seen it you need to check it out the next time you're down in LA.  We all saw this killer knit that was printed in a levi pattern...actual tromp l'oeil levis on it, very cool.  I think we all bought some.

But, how to place these motifs on a garment?  Got it home and wondered that for several months.  I finally took a flying leap with this dress.
Fairly successful but if I'd been able to read today's Mood blog post I might have been even more so.  Here it is.  Thought it was worth sharing.  Here's the link.

If you don't get the Mood blog you might want to check it out.  Most times it's about more youthful styles but every once in a while it hits the mark.
