My love for pattern repeats has also been something that I have truly enjoyed & haven't dabbled much in it since I left the fashion industry. Designing kids & women's wear, it was part of my job to design repeat prints so I could have fabrics made exactly how I wanted them. I loved doing them as it was the fondation of a whole fashion story. The print, the tee shirt design, or a border a print, an embroidery detail, even a second colour way. All were derived from the initial print.
During this time I have started to build an inspiration folder in pinterest, which is growing believe me. here are a couple of favourites to date.
I have also started to play around with my own again which can be quite addictive & I look forward to sharing some with you.It's jumping back on a bike again really, I have been a bit rusty achieving that perfectly seamless repeat, but it hasn't taken long.
Have a great Monday,
