Mid-Century Dress Pattern Design Swatch

I was pleased with the mannequins I could make with Daz and then with Cinema 4D but I was not quite so pleased with the clothing that I used. The problem was not that the clothing was badly made, quite the contrary, it is made perfectly well but the way it is made does not suit the way I work.

However, some experimentation with the new version of Daz has resulted in a much better look for my designs. This is a Genesis 2 character and the dress is the X2 dress which has a simpler construction and so the fabric design does not have to stretch and so distort across the dress. The result is a much more natural and pleasing look.

This pattern is 1950’s influenced in the use and construction of the motifs but the colours used are from my newly extended palette and intended to represent those colours used in the latter half of the 1960s. The difference is that they are brighter and more saturated giving the fabric design a much more colourful and, I hope, pleasing look.

If you would like to see larger versions of these designs and my other work then you can do so on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
