I'm a handmade sweet lolita, and I recently salvaged this really cute fabric from one of my childhood blankets. I love the pattern (hearts with bows on the ends) but each heart is about the size of my hand, and the material is somewhat see through. I'd really like to use this fabric, but I'm not sure what to make with it because of the pattern size. Would you mind giving some advise?
Big prints like that can be very cute but also a bit overwhelming so just try to balance it with things that are more simple to make sure the print stays the focal point. Maybe you could make a skirt with it and wear it with a solid colored blouse. Or a JSK with a solid colored bodice and just have the skirt portion be the printed fabric, that way the print doesn’t seem overwhelming. Since it’s see-through I would just recommend lining the skirt, maybe with white or a lighter version of the base color of the fabric you’re using. Since it’s from a blanket I don’t know how much fabric you have so you may not have enough for a skirt. Another option could maybe be a tote bag that you could carry with a coord that features similar colors, again lined with a lighter colored fabric.
