New print: Sweet Matroshka!

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *



Inspired by those lovely Russian stacking dolls, this newest print is full of delightfully bright colors and themes to brighten up your winter!

The design is all ready to be printed and turned into the example jumperskirt. The question is which one? I can't seem to decide between the version with polka-dots or the one without. So please let me know what you think!

With polka-dots


Without polka-dots


Similarly I'm a bit stuck about the jumperskirt design.


Basically I can't decide whether the bodice "bands" should be made of the russian doll fabric (the scattered design section), or of a coordinating solid color that would match the ric-rack trim and removable bows.

The coordinating color in either case would be decided by the customer and would match the print (royal blue, light blue, leaf green, red, pink, light purple, brown, tan, or yellow.)

I can't wait to make the example jumperskirt and I hope you all like it =)

Edit: If you like the design please add this journal. I will be posting more updates about it and other lines here.

Thank you.

Hmm so far it seems like the non-polkadot version is the most popular. I hope that doesn't put a damper on your intrest. =)

Oh gosh, this is so cute, I love it! I personally prefer it without the polka dots, because it's a little less busy and lets you see the cute acorns better. :3

ETA: Oh, and I like the second JSK design. ^_^

I like the print without the dots and the 2nd JSK design because it gives it more contrast.

The more contrast really is key. I think I originally designed the first jsk design because I was thinking of wearing it with a red belt. But not everyone has a red belt! XD

That's really pretty. It's sweet without being all candy-sugar-unicorn-rainbow stuff.
I like the second JSK, sans polka dots. It looks clean and elegant to me that way.

Yeah I wanted to do something that was cute and poppy without being too sweet-sugary-princess, I myself am feeling a bit too old for that XDDD

I like it without the dots; it's just too busy other wise. And honestly, I think either design for the jsk would look good.

Thank you! Yeah it seems like the dots make it a bit too busy. All the colors are so bright already.

It's really lovely! I personally like it without the polkadots, since there's already small motif print on it too. Both JSK designs would be pretty, but I think again I like the 2nd one more because it seems like the solid bands would be relief from the busy-ness of the print.

I really like the print without the polka dots because it is less distracting from the print. Also, I think the bodice band should be a solid coordinating color. It's so adorable!

Thank you! I'm pretty sure it'll be with the solid color bands.

What a gorgeous print! The polka dots fill it out. A coordinating solid band seems best. Man I am just enamored with this design.

Actually, if it were on the right fabric, it could look amazing without the polka dots.

Haha I know what you mean, it's a dilemma. Thats why I decided to asks others opinions!

I'm so happy you (and so many others) like the design. I will be posting more updates about it on this journal in the future.

Ooooh I love this *grabby hands* I will definitely be saving up to buy this. It reminds me a little bit of ETC (=

I prefer without polka dots and the second Jsk design =D

XD thank you! I really like ETC's cleanness of design, which is surprisingly hard to do. It's just so tempting to just keep putting more embellishments.
