Kathy has made this gorgeous Liberty Midi dress out of the Liberty Tana Lawn® Champion’s Bouquet B fabric from the beautiful Liberty Champions collection. The pattern has various options for a frill, a longer length dress and long sleeves, giving multiple options for future sewing which is always great.  I asked Kathy why she decided to make this dress. “I saw it on last year’s Sewing Bee and I thought it was such a beautiful design that I just couldn’t resist! I decided on a floaty sleeve as I felt this would look more like a classic T-dress, which I absolutely …

Liberty Detachable Collar

Laura has made this gorgeous Liberty Detachable Collar which is fully reversible.  It’s got a lovely vintage style about it and I love the fact that it is two garments in one.  Laura told me about the project below: “I have never had any need to do the whole ‘Christmas jumper’ thing. Certainly no need for jumpers in December in Australia. ‘Christmas sunburn’ was more the thing, an attractive red and regret-tinged momento of what my Christmas Day outfit of choice did not cover. Ouch. However I must say that even if they were a thing Down Under, I probably …
