Pin me up - Ginger Dress goes Pinup Print

  One thing I get to do that I enjoy greatly is finding beautiful new fabrics for us to use. Be it hunting at fabric and textile tradeshows to, more importantly, creating new textile prints. One of my partners in crime in textile creations is Mr.Joe de Blois, and we are of course under the guided hand of Laura Byrnes. 

 First it all starts with an idea; be it from Laura, Joe or myself, it starts as an idea. From there we rough out the design, and show it to Laura for initial approval. In this case, here are my original sketches for the Pinup Girl fabric:


  I usually work in animator pencils and then go back in various drafting mechanical pencils to finalize my drawing. I scan them in and import the files into a program called Flash, though I can use illustrator I prefer how flash draws lines for things that are more simplistic like this.

  After they are done I create a repeat and fill in all the colors on the print. It is then ready to be used to create an original custom printed fabric.


  From this point we create the dress. In this case we wanted to make the Ginger dress in our new Pinup Print. It felt like the right body for such a fun and flirty design. 

  We had talked about for years doing a Pinup Print fabric, but the time was not right, and now you can all take this wearable art home in the form of our Pinup Couture Ginger Dress, in sizes XS - 2X.
