I ordered the TS582 World Print. Even with a ruler showing dimensions, I find that I get the truest sense of print when I see it in person. As you can see from my photo above, many of the dots are around 1" in diameter. The fun tiger squiggles are around 4-5" long. A print of this large a scale takes planning. Some people can carry off large prints very well. Others, like me, the print tends to wear them instead of them wearing the print. Know what I mean? It's like your garment walks into the room before you.
Dry clothing and dancewear? Enter Titan fabric! Printed Titan has some excellent activewear properties, such as high stretchability, exceptional shape recovery powers, ideal for outstanding sport performance. So when Funkifabrics offered me a chance to play with Titan I knew I wanted to make a dancewear top that included the following:
- Fitted or body skimming
- Built-in bra
- Fun back openings
- Includes fringe in some way shape or form
- Sassy styling that would stand out on the dance floor
- Highlights the fabric
- Suits my style
- I wear the print rather than it overpowering me
When I begin to plan out a project, I start pulling out anything that remotely looks like it would fit my design ideas. It doesn't matter if it's not the exact garment type I need. For example, in making this top, I pulled out several vintage dresses before I decided against them. Necklines, waistlines, hemlines, etc. can all be transferred and combined to create a piece of my liking.
I will likely land on a combination of these 5 patterns. I'm really excited!
