Final Pattern #2 for Frances Baker


This be the second pattern design for Frances Bakers new collection. I think the gold makes it my favourite. I'm pretty busy today so I won't bother you too much with the particulars!

process...kind of

the fabric

It might be hard to tell from some of these photos (alas, printing at night has made them a little on the dark side) but I believe that the way the fabric is dyed sort of makes it look like clouds in a city night sky. You know, when the sky is more purple than midnight blue, and the clouds reflect the light pollution making them sort of pinky orange? (i make it sound so romantic)

The sink-full of golden water was also pretty rad.

Final Pattern #1 for Frances Baker

Frances Baker AW12 5

I'm pretty excited to share this with you all. As some of you would know, I have been working closely with friend/housemate/genius Frances Baker on her latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2012. We've been scheming about patterns for quite a while now. And since being back from Adelaide, we've progressed in leaps and bounds. You probably saw a few posts back about some of the progress it has been making. Anyhow, on a quiet Monday afternoon (a few weeks ago) I got down to printing. It was pretty exciting for me, and for Josie too! We're still deliberating over names. So many average names...(my naming skills are lacking)
