When given the chance to design a wide width (300cm from selvedge to selvedge) burnout for Meridian’s Folk Revival collection, I immediately thought of creating a border design. The fabric being wide width meant the border could continuously run along the bottom of the window with no seams. Further investigation into border designs revealed that sampling unfortunately created loads of wastage. I didn’t want to just give up on the idea, so I went back to the drawing board and designed a vine that could grow up the border from selvedge to selvedge. This new design meant no wastage when sampling and no repeat within the design, so it took weeks to create the entire 300cm. The result is a unique and decorative burnout sheer, well worth all the hard work!
