Digital Pirnting Tests

I tested out my prints on the uni printer today!! And even though the colours are off, it is exciting to see them in real actual scale and how they work together. And I think they do work together! I am very happy with the way they turned out.

I had a big struggle with this one, since I came up with the drawing first. That's always the trouble when you do a cool looking drawing and translating that into patterns. So I started to drape it and the first toile was a big fail and looked like a massive mou mou (is that how you spell it?). Second toile, it's looking better, still not the drawing, but I think it has moved away from it in a good way. The fabric will be silk crepe de shin and will be printed in my lily print which I tested out today at uni and it looked great (although the uni printer's colours were a bit off). That will be in another blog.
