Gingezel™ Fashion For Her: Sprout Patterns
For those of you who sew

How would you like thousands of choices of fabric pattern and color for a range of designs; dresses, blazers, t-shirt, and more? Sprout Patterns is a cut and sew company that is part of Spoonflower that lets you do that. Because they are related, all Spoonflower fabric designs are available there. We hope you will choose ours!

Here is an example of how it works using the Victoria Blazer we have designed

Here is what it says at Sprout Patterns:
"With Sprout, simply choose your sewing pattern from our curated collection of indie patterns. Put together a palette from Spoonflower designs that you have created or choose from thousands of marketplace designs. Dynamically fill the pattern, then select your size, features and fabric, and relax while your order is printed and shipped to you by Spoonflower.
Your project will include pattern pieces digitally printed onto fabric, sewing instructions and the original PDF pattern with all sizes"


The way this works is that you have to be logged into both Spoonflower and Sprout Patterns. You can start from scratch, or browse for inspiration. If you are working from a project created by the Sprout Community and want to change it a bit, below the shopping cart button at Sprout it says:
How to customize a Sprout design.
Click on that, and you go into the creation lab where the project, in this case the blazer, was done. Using the number of the design from Spoonflower you can replace the design on the blazer you want to change with what you would prefer. I won't say it is simple, but it is reasonable to do.

For example, the Spoonflower URL for the Apricot Geometric is
http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/
1153719-apricot-geometric-2-c-gingezel-2012-by-gingezel

The number they mean is
1153719

Say you want a much more vibrant design:

That takes you back to the blazer design

The Apply Designs area of Sprout Patterns.

Apply the new design to the body of the blazer.

NOTE: make really sure on the part that looks like a flat pattern that the design is the way you want. That counts, not the 3D model.

Rotating the image around, you will probably see that while you lined it up carefully on the pattern, it doesn't look quite right 3D. They say trust the pattern. I hope the difference in the images gets fixed! It makes me nervous, I don't know about you.
