While some prints will cover every square inch of fabric, particularly if they are printed instead of woven prints, other prints will end near the selvage leaving a border of the background fabric. This gives the designer the option of using the selvage end as a border. You can see that technique in this dress from DCNY where the print ends slightly above the hem. It’s an easy and clever way to add a design detail to your dress – though sometimes it does end up using more fabric for the entire dress because you cannot minimize wastage by cutting the skirt in opposite directions. I think it’s worth it, though, for the added element it brings.
The dress is from DCNY for My Attic, the quarterly showcase at The Deck. This session’s theme is My Favorite Things. While I did not see any whiskers on kittens or warm woolen mittens, there are some lovely favorite things to check out.
One of my favorite things this time is the fur stole from Adore and Abhor. The bow is adorable and comes with a color change HUD that lets you go crazy.
The hair is from Dura and tinted so I am wearing a hair base from D!va instead of the one that came with it. The skin if from PXL Creations with lovely shadow and lipstick tattoo layers.
