How to Use Border Prints
Judith Neukam shares a variety of clever ways to use border prints in garment design, in Threads #172.
This season, border prints make an appearance on many fashion runways. It seems everyone responds to a border print: Every time Threads uses one for a test garment, we receive letters and emails from readers asking where to find the fabric. Thus, it’s a great time to take the current trend and design a garment that takes full advantage of a border print.
First, I’ll show you how to change the direction of a border print to redesign its emphasis. Then, if you’re inspired by the possibilities and want to try something more complicated, see how to take an all-over print you love and turn it into a border for a one-of-a-kind garment.

Will try to remember this.
Most of the border prints I have used have been directional so I did not have this choice.
