A mixed modern and mid-century dress pattern design

A mixed modern and mid-century dress pattern design

Well, I suppose I would have to say that this is perhaps as much modern as it is mid-century although it did begin its life with strong 1950s roots.

The motif inspiration was the highly stylised flowers and leaves that appeared in the later years of the 1950s and 1960s which, when used with black, create a highly unmissable colour contrast that is so appealing. The idea of using black in this way really took off at that time both for fabric and for wall coverings.

I did try the pattern with several background colour before realising that black gave me the best and most 1960’s look. The next stage is to use smaller flowers and leaves to create that iconic 1960s version that is still so prevalent and loved today, but that will be for another day.
