Fabric design with golden leaves as seen in the 'Phoenix' portrait of Queen Elizabeth I.
Even the size of the leaves should be correct (but that, of course, also depends on your body size!) - I calculated it from the five leaves that run down her arm in the portrait.
In case you're not familiar with Spoonflower; note that this fabric is neither really embroidered, nor does it contain real goldwork. It's a printed fabric (printed with non-metallic inks) of which the design imitates embroidery and goldwork
. Just found it safer to mention this ;-)
If you plan to use it for a dress, I do recommend to glue or sew half pearls in between the cordings as seen in the portrait, to add depth to the fabric; but then again, that requires a LOT of pearls.
I do recommend ordering this fabric in either the cotton silk (for a more shiny, satin-like look) or in cotton sateen (for a not-so-shiny look).
This design is also available printed on many other products in my Cafepress store!
If you were always wondering how different colors print on the various fabrics that Spoonflower offers, please do have a look at my website where I have quite a few comprehensive photos of color swatches printed on various fabrics!
