Ballroom Belles 1940s Repro Fabric
I've had my initial version of this fabric repro up on my Spoonflower for a little while now. It was one of my early fabric repros, and really needed a bit of tweaking with some of the knowledge I gained through doing more designs, as well as recolouring. I'm now happy to unveil version 2, which I think I'll make available in the light turquoise of the original it's based on, and maybe a baby or peachy pink (I need to consult the Sears colour charts of the early 40s to see which shades of pink were popular).
In related news, I'm venturing into actually designing some fabrics myself, rather than just reproducing vintage designs, and right now I'm working on expanding this particular print into a co-ordinated range. And with a bit of luck it'll be coming soon to a fabric store near you!
