This is a sort of big and rather loose houndstooth design which is shown on a very large scale, I will show it much smaller later.

Again, it owes its origin to standard midcentury designs that you would have seen as fabrics for workwear or leisure clothing.

This was assembled and rendered in Daz, the model is a Genesis2 (Olympia), the clothes are Neat Pleats and the patterns were created in Xara Designer 9.

xar208 Polka Dots

xar208

As last we come, as come we must, to the various variations of the classic polka dot pattern.

Although there exist a good many variations, there are really only three ways to put the dots on the pattern. One way is to make them symmetrical, the other way is to make them unsymmetrical, and the third way, which is perhaps the more fun way, is to make them random and, if you like, of random sizes as well.

The ones shown here are both symmetrical and unsymmetrical and whether you make them one or the other makes a considerable difference to the look of the finished fabric as it will be obvious from the four finished patterns on the model. I will come to random polka dot patterns later on but the overall effect is more or less the same as unsymmetrical.

You can see the finished pattern on my Flickr page here.

As usual, this was assembled and rendered in Daz, the model is a Genesis2 (Olympia), the clothes are Neat Pleats and the patterns were created in Xara Designer 9.

No it isn’t camouflage! However, it may well have been influenced by wartime camouflage because this is based on 1950s fashion fabrics.

The pattern is a simple one and it would, of course, be available in all sorts of background and foreground colours although I will show it in just one colour, red and black, which appears to be the best combination. This is very much a pattern for all seasons and all styles.

So what is better than one Stephanie? Yes, you’re right, it’s two and we have two Stephanies here to show off the two colour and size variations.

The background colours are original 1950s British Standard colours, zephyr and copra

This is a really nice pattern which, once again, owes its origins to the 1960s and the emergence, in the middle of that decade, of flower power.

In this particular version it is shown with quite a large motif on a complete item of clothing where it looks quite eye-catching. The background colour for this version is authentic, lovely, cool eau de nil.

There are a variety of colour and size variations for this pattern which I will show shortly.

This pattern, xar205, is based around various similar square patterns that appeared at the end of the 1950s and are due again for renewal. These small motif patterns are really good as fashion patterns as can be seen.

A good variation of the last pattern which uses colours more effectively and creates a somewhat more sophisticated look.
