Beautiful Liberty Dress

Laura has made another Beautiful Liberty Dress using one of the stunning fabrics from the new classics range. She’s made it using ‘Libby’ from the new Liberty Classics which is a small floral depicting daisies in fun colours. The pattern is one of Laura’s own creations which makes her super talented.     I asked Laura about her choice of fabric and the ‘make’:   “The Libby print from the 2019/20 Liberty Classics collection is a small, ditzy floral with vintage vibes and is therefore perfection in physical fabric form.

Liberty Top With A Cute Collar

Anna JP from the office has made this really cute Liberty Top With A Cute Collar.  It’s made using one of our sale fabrics ‘Poppy’s Patchwork‘.   I asked Anna about the project. “Whilst amusing myself tidying up the long rolls in the studio one afternoon and wondering if any of the prints would work for a lightweight window screen, I felt a pull towards this small geometric print with the subtle yet clear summery colours. I decided to make a sleeveless top (not a window screen – but maybe that’ll come later), so went about finding a suitable pattern. …

Charity Liberty Quilts Made by The Dulwich Quilters

When I took a phone call from Jenny Strong earlier on this year asking if her quilting group ‘The Dulwich Quilters’ could make Charity Liberty Quilts for the Alice Caroline Quilt SOS project, I was delighted.  Jenny mentioned that one of the quilters in her group had sadly passed away last year and left a large Liberty fabric stash for them to use for charitable causes.  Sheila Conway’s fabric stash has been put to a fantastic use in these 7 stunning quilts which will be personally hand delivered to the children in Latvia later on this year. A couple of …

Anna’s made these super cute Liberty Wide Leg Trousers using Isadora from the new AW19 collection.  I am planning to make some of these myself as I love them so much.  They are perfect for the warmer summer months and if you wanted to extend the season, you can interline them to give them additional thickness and body.
