Romantic Garden Collection

Personal work
By Merely Susan

Romantic Garden is a collection of pattern designs that was created in my studio in the first half of 2020. The aim of the design process was to create patterns in retro (modern vintage) style that will work well for digital printing on natural linen and cotton fabrics.

I found inspiration for creating this collection in old photos, while browsing scraps of vintage materials, as well as walking through a blooming summer meadow. The collection consists of three designs, hand-painted with watercolor paints – Romantic Garden, Rose Dreams and Morning Mist.

Patterns are harmonious compositions that consist of small elements (flower motifs, such as wild rose and forget-me-not). The color palette is dominated by beige, green and gray. However, I added a pinch of color to each of the designs in a more vivid shade – blue or pink.

Fabrics with prints of patterns from the Romantic Garden collection are eagerly chosen by Merely Susan customers, i.e. people who sew on request for women’s or children’s retro-style clothing projects (especially summer dresses), as well as for sewing toys and textiles for babies.
