Working on designs for  a new house dress fabric.
Simplicity of line - this large pen drawing is still clear when reduced in size.
The house dresses and wrap aprons in the UK (of which there are many variations), traditionally featured a small floral repeat design.  This made it easy for it to be made at home - no large patterns to match up at the seams.
