Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Mid-Century Cocktail Dress PrintsContest

Mid-century cocktail dress prints Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: July 25, 2012

This time around we asked designers to create a print to use for a vintage pattern dress in an upcoming local theater production of "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying." In the quest to come up with a print for a mid-20th century cocktail dress, we got to vote on lots of terrific vintage-style fabrics, but the winner this week is Cocktail Flowers by Elizabeth Halpern of ModernPrintCraft. Congratulations, Elizabeth!
