Prints in Summer 2009 Dresses

Pattern is very important with botanical garden prints, and there are also Amer-African tribal prints and animal designs.  Brushstroke marks and hazy watercolour blends of dyes that run into each other add a touch of dreamy lightness to lazy summer day frocks, tea dresses and occasion wear.  Many of the currently fashionable retro inspired prints examples above are reminiscent of Vintage 1950s Calpreta cotton satinised fabrics.
One instance where pattern is shown to great effect is in the kimono sleeve and Kaftan sleeve. Widths of sleeve and drape vary, but the potential for even greater volume is still growing.
