I can’t get enough of these moody, wintery florals at the moment – overblown, English garden flowers against dark backgrounds and folky embroidery especially. I love Justina Blakeney’s photograph above – the withered flowers look so delicate, it’s a totally different message to a bunch of fresh spring blooms isn’t it? Faded grander, or something like that. I’m keeping my eye out for the perfect printed fabric to make 70’s style long sleeved dresses – I’ll share my findings and some pattern ideas soon!
