A couple weeks ago I went on a fabric-designing binge, fueled by my desire for 18th century historic prints. I designed a small collection based on my favorite sprigged muslins, Indienne block prints, and Chinese hand-painted silks, and uploaded them to Spoonflower.com, a custom fabric store that allows you to purchase designs on a number of difference materials, including cotton sateen, voile, and silk crepe de chine. I just received my samples in the mail and they’re lovely! Check out these designs and a handful of others in my first collection, with yardage now for sale on Spoonflower:
This print is closely based on this c. 1795 robe in the collection of the V&A (T.121-1992). The original design is block printed Indian chintz.
