It took some trial and error, and ultimately calling Spoonflower because it got frustrating and a bit of "good enough" on my part. The thing was, I got the PERFECT pinky-purple on my sampler, but when printed on sateen, since (at the time) the cotton on the sampler was more yellow white and the sateen was more white white, it messed it up. I also tried multiple iterations of the skirt panel fabric and gave up since it just would not print as dark as I wanted it to.
I would say if you are on a budget, at least spring the dollar for the mini color sample and try to adjust based on that. I also went online to look up hex number codes since the color change tool on Spoonflower is pretty limited. Try starting with a #C089BA.
love your color choices!! how on earth did you get it to be that perfect color?? every time i've tried to use spoonflower it always comes out far too pink
No, I sketched this from scratch and did the striping effect and pattern repeat in Photoshop. But the comparison is flattering.
