Not too long ago, we swooned over Caitlin Shearer’s gorgeous printed dresses. Now, the Sydney-stationed artist revealed more adorable, illustrated textiles that she’s sewn into retro-style frocks and circle skirts. Carrying pretty patterns, Caitlin’s latest designs feature rainbow-hued girl scout badges, a vintage bunny figurine, mermaids and — our favorite — bows! Spy the lovely wearable art below, and be sure to check out Ms. Shearer’s shop to pick up your own limited edition piece.
Illustrator/designer Olivia Mew recently recruited one of our favorite artists, Ms. Caitlin Shearer, to create an item for her textile design company, Stay Home Club. What resulted is a pillow case, appropriately dubbed Sweet Dreams, featuring eight ladies donning vintage 1950s lingerie in Caitlin’s signature illustration style. Get a closer look at the killer pillow cases after the jump, and snatch up a pair for your bedroom this way.
After posting gorgeous fabrics adorned with her illustrations, Australian artist Caitlin Shearer just unveiled what she’s been working on: a killer collection of dresses. Featuring vintage-style silhouettes, the frocks are embellished with whimsical illustrated patterns of grumpy girls’ faces, stemmed flowers, pastel polka dots, sweets, swans, and more. Although the line won’t be available until late-May, you can head on over to Caitlin’s website to get the skinny on how to reserve a handmade skirt or dress in her lovely fabrics. I, for one, can’t wait to get my hands on a Grumpy Girl mini skirt — so cute! — and you could swoon over the collection after the jump.
If you have a soft spot for retro-style art, then we’ve found the tattoos for you! Aussie artist Caitlin Shearer just released a gorgeous line of temporary tattoos inspired by pin-ups, childhood nostalgia and vintage collectables. Each set features several of Ms. Shearer’s paintings with ladies donning pumps, vintage lingerie or nothing at all, with automobiles, sunglasses, and sweet, ribbon-adorned hearts as accessories. Swoon over the collection below, and visit her Etsy for some killer wearable art.
It’s not a secret that we adore Caitlin Shearer’s original illustrations and paintings around here. The Sydney-stationed artist has created a variety of imaginary strangers — mainly women — who are intertwined through their romantic endeavors and downfalls. Her work is relatable, yet inspiring — adorned with characters encompassing the emotions that go along with being lonely, a daydreamer, and in-love, respectively.
Recently, we asked Caitlin to show us inside her studio, and she obliged with a collection of lovely photos adorned with paintbrushes, porcelain swans, and an abundance of sketches, which you can dig through below. And don’t forget to check out her blog, which catalogs her drawings, along with commissioned projects like gorgeous illustrated look-books and album covers.
