Steampunks! It's all about the details!
The Geneva Mechanism is a real piece of 18th century engineering.
Lovely Autumn colors will be dazzling in an ascot, cumberbund, or blouse. Recommended for cotton-silk, scaled at half this size...select 300 dpi.
I present to you a clockwork design illustrating the series of movements made by a drive wheel (at left), meshing with its Maltese-Cross-shaped stop (at right).
You can see this movement animated on wikipedia here...go ahead, I'll wait:
Hypnotic, isn't it?
That was the great thing about pre-solid-state technology...If you were clever and observant...you could figure out how your stuff worked.
It's all magic boxes now...Unless you go steampunk!

Also! I like this one printed at 300 dpi...a nice scale for neckties and ascots and whatnot... at 150 dpi...it's just too big...

Just received my order in cotton voile and Kona....looks fabulous printed...I can't wait to make it into a blouse...
