Printing outfit 5

Today I printed outfit 5. Initially as it was a placement print design I thought it would be the easiest of all the outfits to print. I couldn't have been more wrong. I hadn't really designed these last two garments well...leaving it till the day of printing to decide on where the placement of the print would be. Originally I was going to have a large placement print on the front of the garment leaving the rest of the pattern pieces plain. However when comparing them to the other designs within the collection I felt they may look a little odd. So I went a little free style, for the front panels I kept my original idea just printing the one placement. For the sleeves I alternated the size of the placements and created a design which will grow up the sleeve of the garment. When it came to printing the back panels I was a little unsure of where to print...I decided on placing the screen in random places and printing scattered prints. They look fairly good flat, however I will not be able to see how successful they are until constructed. Time will tell how successful this outfit will be. Below are photo's of the printing stages.
