What is floral radiograph fabric?
I had the same question. And here is the answer I was given:
” Floral Radiography is the procedure of x-raying delicate flowers to create art. Over 100 years old, this practice is almost as venerable as x-ray technology itself. Because of the sensitivity of x-ray technology, composition difficulty, and the fragility of the processing method, most floral radiograph attempts do not turn out. But the ones that make it to a finished product are so stunningly, hauntingly beautiful they make the endeavor worthwhile! The tiny community of artists who make floral radiographs do not limit themselves to flowers either. Whether it’s the ability to see beyond the naked eye, or the similarity to silhouettes and shadows, floral radiography translates beautifully to fabric because the owner of floral radiograph fabric can use it to create something that transcends the flesh of nature and touches the very bones.”
Our friend Audrey (from the blog SkirtFixation) has teamed up with a floral radiographer to create some beautiful prints on thick, buttery, organic, knit fabric. And this week I was lucky enough to able to create a skirt for myself from this print:
It is so soft and feminine I had to make something for myself from it!
I’m excited about my new skirt. With the soft, delicate pattern I think it will be one that I can easily dress up or down.
I love this skirt pattern. In fact, I made 7 of these skirts last spring and then wore them all summer. They are super easy to make and really comfortable to wear.
This skirt only took me an hour to make from start to finish!

Thank you Audrey for letting us be a part of this truly unique fabric tour!
