Romantic Garden Collection

About collection

Romantic Garden is a collection that I created in the first half of 2020. I wanted to create patterns for light, linen fabrics – perfect for clothing for spring or summer. My main inspiration were simple field flowers, such as wild roses and forget-me-nots. I also was influenced by photos from bygone eras and scraps of vintage fabrics.


Design process

The pattern designs were hand-painted in real scale with watercolor paints and prepared for digital printing on fabric. The color palette is dominated by beige, green and gray. Adding a pinch of more vivid shades of pink and blue introduces a contrast to the designs. Thanks to the subtle colors, the patterns will prove themselves in children’s products.


Products design

The Romantic Garden collection was printed on linen fabrics that are still willingly chosen by the customers of my shop and have gathered a lot of positive opinions. You can read an example of a review on my Etsy Store page. They are used for sewing children’s clothing and textiles, as well as women’s clothing – especially in retro style.
