Liberty Patchwork Dress

Laura has made this completely gorgeous patchwork dress using the new ‘Exclusive Butterfly Garden Collection‘.  Having been involved in the design process of this fabric collection, she couldn’t decide which fabric to make a dress out of so used lots of them.     These are Laura’s wise words about the sewing project:   “To anyone who has thought about sewing a patchwork outfit but then shied away from doing so, I would say to go for it! It is not at all as hard or tiresome as you may think and you will love it to bits, I am …

Beautiful Liberty Pyjamas

Sue Shoesmith from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made these beautiful Liberty Pyjamas.  She’s used the new Felicite Teal from my new ‘Butterfly Garden Exclusive’ collection and it’s a great choice.  The finished PJ’s are simply beautiful and it’s going to be really hard to send them back to Sue now that I’ve seen them! It’s such a special thing having a gorgeous set of pyjamas – we do spend a lot of time sleeping after all.     Before the summer holidays, I asked the lovely Lewes Sewing Bees if they wanted to use my new Butterfly Garden Exclusives …

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” …

Liberty Vintage Pinafore

 Laura has made this gorgeous Liberty Vintage Pinafore using one of the recently launched quilting cottons.  She’s used Lawn A from the new Winterbourne collection.  It’s got a lovely vintage feel and it really showcases the use of a quilting cotton in a garment.    Here’s what Laura had to say about the project.”I have long thought that Liberty’s quilting cotton would also be suited to garment making (though the name of the fabric itself implies just the one end-use).  Specifically, garments that require a little more warmth or garments that benefit from having more structure, like this pinafore. The …

One of the lovely Lewes Sewing Bees has made this gorgeous Strawberry Thief Liberty Shawl.  The outer fabric is a lovely wool fabric and Anne has cleverly lined it with Strawberry Thief  J which makes the fabric really shine, both the wool outer and Liberty lining.  The lovely Louise from the studio is modelling the Shawl beautifully.  Anne Commin, the clever maker of this beautiful shawl, tells us about the project below.   “Three of the Lewes Sewing Bees have made these shawls so far and we all like their relaxed but subtly chic character. The pattern is The Skye …

Liberty Nightdress

Dawn from the studio has made this gorgeous Liberty Nightdress in one of my exclusive Liberty white on white fabrics.  The finished nightdress is so delicate and has some lovely lace detail which compliments the style perfectly. I asked Dawn about making the nightdress.  “I made the version with short sleeves and on the whole it was easy but I did find the sleeves tricky to insert which meant readjusting to help with the fit.  I altered the pattern slightly – shortening by miles and used French seams for the whole sewing project.  I also added some cotton lace around …
