1980s Fashion Pattern

1980s fashion patternI am in the process of producing the first image for the 1980s room which I hope will be finished shortly as, while I am dictating this, the image is being processed.

Whilst we wait, I was looking through some 1980s photographs and I saw a pattern on a dress which particularly caught my eye. The pattern was at a very small-scale and those who know me will know that I particularly like fast repeats. I therefore created a similar pattern and spent some time to get the pattern to look at least a little random. Anyone who creates surface patterns will know that it is all too easy to end up with a pattern which, when looked at from a distance, appears to have lines or boxes where there should just be pattern.

I have no real intention of using the design as a fashion pattern although I might have a look again at the mannequins that I produced some time back to see if it is possible to make those look good enough. The pattern was created using Affinity Designer.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
