Liberty Wiltshire Blouse

Claire from the studio has made this super sweet Liberty Wiltshire Blouse using one of the new Alice Caroline Exclusive fabrics.  It’s the first time I’ve seen a garment made up in one of my new exclusives so that is really exciting.  I love this top – such a delicate look for the summer months. I asked Claire about the project. What do you love about this fabric from the Betsy Butterfly Garden collection? “I love the Wiltshire Blossom – the colours are so delicate.  The whole collection is gorgeous, but for me, the Wiltshire Blossom was an outright winner” …

Lara from the studio has made this gorgeous Liberty AW20 Dress using ‘Star Anise A’ from the new AW20 collection.  Louise (also from the studio) is modelling the dress here.   I asked Lara about the sewing project.   What fabric did you use and why? “The main body of the dress uses ‘Star Anise A’ which is a hand painted design with ditsy flowers.  My contrast fabric for the sleeve and pocket edges, as well as for the neck binding and lower band is a grey dotty Makower fabric from Hobbycraft.  I really liked the ditsy fabric and the sunny …

Liberty Dress

Lucy from the studio has made this stunning dress using one of the new fabrics from the AW20 collection – Private View.  This is one of my favourite fabrics from this collection – I love the William Morris connection (it was inspired by the Morris Honeysuckle design) and this new interpretation has primulas and fritillaries in soft watercolours.   I asked Lucy about the sewing project. I love the fabric you have chosen – Elm House A – what drew you to the design? “When I first flipped through the sample book for the Private View AW20 collection of Liberty …

Liberty Garden Chair Covers

Pauline from the studio has made these gorgeous Liberty Garden Chair covers using a Tresco stretch denim.  This fabric is hard wearing and yet a little stretchy which is perfect for this project.  The finished result is a comfortable seat which will last a long time.  I asked Pauline about the project. “Ever since I started working at Alice Caroline, Tresco A has been a favourite of mine.  It leaps off the shelves with its bright yellows, greens, reds, purples, pinks and blues.  The colours should not go together but they blend beautifully and stand out against the green of …

Beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt

We’ve received the first beautiful Quilt SOS Quilt into the studio for our 2020 project.  It’s a completely stunning quilt which has so much detail within it.  It’s a quilt that is full of fun and interest and therefore perfect for a child.  It has been made by Kathryn Ross and was inspired by her daughters bedroom floor and by Arbury Hall.  The Quilt SOS project is now in its 5th year – later on this year we are taking the quilts to London to be given to the children and their mothers currently seeking refuge in the safe houses …

Stylish Liberty Tie

Laura from the office has made this lovely tie for her dad.  It’s so tricky to find nice homemade gift ideas for the men in our lives and this is the perfect ‘easy sew’.  I asked Laura about the project. “I wanted to make a present for my amazing Dad but am ashamed to say I usually struggle to sew for men.  I just don’t know what small items they want or use that I could also conceivably sew! Women are easy, we use a whole host of accessories for hair, bags and clothing that one can make and give …

Mitsi Mustard Liberty Shirt

Anna JP from the office has made this lovely Mitsi Mustard Liberty shirt for her son.  It uses one of our exclusive fabrics from 2019 in one of the most popular Liberty prints.  The Mitsi mustard design is inspired by Japanese cherry blossom.  As Anna says, it looks rather like the hawthorn ‘may’ flower that we see here in the spring hedgerows. Here’s what Anna had to say about the project.  “Following the success of Isaac’s “Walter+Gilbert” Christmas prezzie shirt, I was interested to see if I would enjoy the sewing process more if I had less of a pattern-matching challenge. …
