This virtual fabric is very much designed around mid-century ideas using both backgrounds and colours from that period to produce two very different looking tops.

The background to the material is Midnight Blue and Jasmine, both mid-century British Standard colours. The design also features a range of colours from that period to produce an authentic look

This was modelled and rendered in Daz while the design was made in Xara Designer 9.

An unusual and this time a quite modern fashion pattern but one that does employ some older motifs but with a new twist.

The decoration for the pattern is based on old designs as you can see but the main motif is a modern one consisting of a bracelet in four different positions. Not a photograph, this is a vector image at a small scale. The background is very much mid-century, however, using very 1950s colours of Manila and the lovely and useful Court Grey – both British Standard hues.

The whole was created in Xara Designer and rendered and assembled in Daz using a Genesis 2 model. Incidentally, I tried it at a smaller scale and, although it worked, it lost the look I was trying for.

OK, this is a bit of fun, and shows a scene from the future using a simple pattern that could have come from the middle of the 20th century.

Will future clothing look like it’s made of plastic, dull, uninspiring and shiny, or will people still want a pattern to brighten up the look? My guess is, as happened with the Modernist movements in the middle of the twentieth century, people will opt for a choice of patterning on their clothing.

This takes that concept and uses a simple all-over pattern to dress up an otherwise shiny and uninspiring future one-piece suit. The model is from Daz and came ready dressed, she is a Genesis 2 figure I think. The design was made in Xara Designer and the render was in Daz. (A note just for me, the lighting uses a red specular light.)

A nice pattern created with mid-century colours and a very simple and timeless design creates two contrasting fabric styles for tops.

The background for these two designs are the mid-century colours, Golden Yellow and Orchis, which together make a nice contrast. The design is a simple timeless, circular design which is adapted from mid-century motifs.

The designs were created in Xara Designer 9 while the 3D work was done in Daz Studio, the model is being a standard Genesis 2 with the Patti top.

A fashion fabric from the 1960s? Well, not exactly, but it certainly is mid-century inspired.

The background is a colour that was proposed for the British Standard but which never made it into the final choice. Why, I don’t know but it really is a nice colour and because of this it does not have an official name and so I have called it ‘Michael’s Green’ for obvious reasons.

The motif is a pleasant blend of standard mid-century shapes and creates a harmonising and organic design that has both movement and style. It is displayed here on a Genesis 2 model and rendered in Daz. The design was created, as most of my designs are, in Xara Designer 9.

Mid-century inspired but modern in colour and appearance, this is a classic pattern brought right up to date.

There is not a lot to say about this design, it is, like most of my patterns, mid-century inspired but this time using up to date colours and motifs. Mid-century is, however, preserved in the background which is Oxlip (my favourite colour) and Royal Maroon (a colour I use a lot), both of which are mid-century British Standard colours.

If you are interested in such things, the whole was conceived and rendered in Daz with the patterns created in Xara Designer.

A neat, simple but very beautiful little pattern that is very much early 1960s or late 1950s inspired.

Black always looks good and the design is shown as a swatch, a length of material and also as it would look on a top.

The material is created in Shade and the top is rendered in Daz Studio while the pattern was fabricated in Xara Designer by far the best program for making mid-century patterns.
