Hello, I am wanting to sew a fitted shift dress with one huge flower print on a coloured back ground such as this one on the wallis website www.wallis.co.uk, petite cream flower dress, sorry i can't seem to link it to this page.

would anyone esp those in the UK know where to find a fabric print like this as all i can find is all over flower prints

thanks

emma

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.

Gorgeous Fabrics has a very large scale poly/lycra knit with pink peonies on black. The flowers measure 24 inches across: Pink Peony knit at Gorgeous Fabrics There are only 2 yards left though!

Carolyn at Bamblue Fabrics on etsy used to have a very large scale rayon lycra print with multicolored flowers on white. It's no longer in stock in her etsy shop, but you could convo her to find out if she could get more. Here's what she made with it: Carolyn's dress in large scale floral

The largest scale floral she has in stock right now at Bamblue has white/grey flowers about 6 inches across on a black ground: Black Dahlia knit at Bamblue Fabrics

Good luck in your search!

Thanks for posting those resources! I too love big prints--you have to when you're 6'1"--and am always on the lookout for new sources!
