Wilder Gypsy Dress

Anna has made this floaty beautiful Wilder Gypsy Dress using one of the fabrics from the Liberty organics range.   “The fabric I chose was from the organic range in Liberty Tana Lawn® cottons.  It’s called Millie A and is a cute ditsy floral that has been brought out of the Liberty archive especially for the organic collection.  It was originally designed for the AW2002 collection but this charming monochrome print has an elegantly retro feel to it.  I’m normally drawn to blue colours but this fabric was sitting by my desk for a while and I loved it.” “I’ve …

Laura from the office has made this Beautiful Liberty Set.  It’s bit like a jumpsuit but way more versatile. Laura tells us about her lovely sewing project below.     “Recently, it feels like all the cool fashion brands on Instagram are making this thing called a ‘set’.
