I have switched the prints around a considerable amount throughout the project.
There are so many possibilities
I have piles of sketches with all of the different print combinations we tried
These are only a few
There are quite a few factors involved in deciding where each print will go.
The weight of the fabric
How many yards we need for each pattern piece vs. how many yards we actually have
What looks good
Since we can't buy more fabric (it was printed in-house, at our school) and we only have enough to cut each pattern piece once, we have spent a lot of time making charts to make sure we have enough of the correct fabric for every look.
Yay tomorrow is Saturday! I am going to the LA fabric district--I have some serious materials sourcing to do.
