After making my Vintage Border Print Dress, I find myself inspired and drawn to border prints.

They are such a simple and easy way to create detail in a dress, skirt, or even a top.  So I’ve been wandering around my local quilt shops as well as a few of my favorite online fabric retailers looking for more great border prints.  Here are a few of my favorites.

5. Tranquility Double Border Floral Pale Sage

This is a new print I found at Fabric.com.  It’s a double border print, meaning that the border pattern appears at both selvedges.  What I like most about this print is that the design is simple, making for a clean design in a finished product.

4. Splendor 1920 Grandeur in Mist

This great cross stitched theme print has a design that goes the entire width of fabric and would make a great vintage inspired dress for an adult or child.

3.  Effervescence by Robert Kaufman

This print is a single border design, with the design running the entire width of the fabric.  It’s also the print that I used to make my Vintage Border Print Dress.


2. Wish Border in Pink by Etsuko Furuya for Echino

Echino is a pretty popular fabric line, and I can see why.  Who wouldn’t want an amazing dress made our of this fun print?  I love how the designs in the Echino lines are created using silhouettes in bright colors.

1. Ahoy Matey Making Waves in Navy

This single border print  would make such a fun summer skirt.  I can definitely see this on the beach and walking along the boardwalk.

Have you found any border prints you love lately?
