I've been busying myself away on my co-ordinates for my flippers and kippers fabric. It's quite a challenge to think about and design co-ordinates instead of a feature or key fabric. Co-ordinates tend to have less going on, but still need to be a strong fabric in their own right and they tend to sell much better than a key fabric in a collection:
I've now added some 'flappers' to the collection - to make it a little more appealing for girls too.
I think I'm getting there with it, although I'm not 100% happy just yet. More tweaking to be done.
