Pink Watercolor Rose Fabric Dress

I was honored to have my watercolor rose fabric chosen to make this beautiful dress.  It was made by Chie of Vivat Vertias and is such a cute and well made dress.  She's a fabulous seamstress!   Click here to read the entire post and visit her site.
 
Here is the watercolor design that is on the fabric up close.  Pink Tea Rose fabric from Spoonflower.

Morning Glory and Pink Petunia Fabric Designs

I've been working with some of my sketches this week for fabric designs.  I made a vine design with the morning glory flowers on a white background so the flowers make a striped effect across the fabric.  I liked how it turned out.  Summery! 

I bought some colored ink pens a while ago and have been drawing garden things with them.   I tried different ways to create a design with these pink petunias.  I tried scattering them at first but it just made me dizzy when I looked at the fabric so I put them all in rows on a watercolor background and liked that a lot better.  Another summery fabric, but since we are heading toward the changing of seasons I need to maybe plan for some pumpkins, santas and snowmen soon...
