Miki and xar137

Miki and xar137

Back to my roots for this pattern today because it draws heavily on mid-century fashion materials dating from the late 1950s into the first years of the following decade.

Before the excesses of the mid-60s, patterns were drawn from pre-war stock but tended to use much more modern and brighter colours. The pattern swatch is shown above and the pattern was used to texture Miki’s dress in six gorgeous colours each of which is taken from the, then current, British Standard mid-century colours.

The colours are on a cotton textured background but based on the following: charcoal, reef red, chocolate, midnight blue, maroon and black. Rather than choose just three for the composite picture as I usually do I was so pleased with the look that I have posted two separate pictures showing three colours on each and therefore used all of the colours that were available.

This is also an outdoor scene using East Terrace and was rendered in Poser and, once again, I am very pleased with the result. The swatch is above but you can see a larger version and both of the composite’s on my Flickr photo stream and the link is here.
