Behind the Scenes


Autumn has arrived and so have my new designs. Here’s a look behind the scenes at how the Rockabilly Robin Dress was made……


After the initial designs and sketches, it’s time to upload the hand drawn print onto the computer to create a negative for exposing the silk screen.


Now the silkscreen is ready to go, the pattern for the dress needs to be drafted. Once all the sizes are drafted the fabric is cut to size and then the designs are screenprinted onto the skirts.


Now everything is printed, each design is heat set with an iron to make the dress machine washable. The final step is to sew it all together.


And here’s the finished dress.
