1950s style dress fabric

This dress could have just been taken out of a 1950s shop window, it is the exact right colour and style for that period.

The pattern itself is based on similar workaday fashion fabrics of that time and the dress used is the Paige dress which looks very 1950s. The colours are from the British Standard palette for the 50s being vanilla for the motif while the background material is orchis. (in case you are wondering orchis is the name of a member of the orchid family producing, in fact, a wide variety of colours for its flowers of which, presumably, this colour is one.)

The pattern was created in Adobe Illustrator and the image rendered in Daz 4.7 using a Genesis 2 model and my usual seaside set with the dress being, as I said, the Paige dress. Although I like all my designs (if I didn’t I wouldn’t show them to you ) I especially like this one with it’s small repeat and irregular outline motif.
