Quick update of my work so far, let me know what you think! because just over a week i'll be cutting them out of fabric with the laser cutter!
Below I've put a series of patterns which all came from this vine motif, I used photoshop and Illustrator to work up the patterns, I need to decide which to use as my final designs. I'm going to cut out the black part from my choice of fabric and then bond it to a background fabric to make it stronger. These will then be used as a lacey dress fabric.
The difference between the pattern above and the pattern below is the one below I've dropped every other column down a little on the image below. (Just incase you couldn't see the difference, I was a little confused myself when I first put them on here haha!)
I thought the images above were almost a little too busy, but used in small quantities as decoration on a bodice or part of a garment would be quite effective.
These designs look much better because the gaps and white space make the intricate designs stand out much better. So in this case less is more.
