Ever see home decor fabric so good you want to wear it? I do! The richly textured weights and large scale patterns are a refreshing departure from what we typically see in apparel fabrics. Check out House and Garden UK (January 2015) where Ruth Sleightholme's "paper-doll wardrobes feature paisley prints and embroidered fabrics that blur the line between fashion and decoration." More wearable art and some "thinking outside the cloth" approaches below. I'm inspired! #wearableart #largepatternfabric #fabricdesign
