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 Dog Coat

Kathy has made this super sweet Liberty Dog Coat for her gorgeous Buzz.  She used some of the Felix & Isabelle PVC coated fabric and lined it with an old cashmere jumper.  Lucky Buzz! I asked Kathy about the project. What was your inspiration for making it and does Buzz love wearing it? “Buzz my furry baby needed a waterproof coat for the crazy amount of rain we had last winter.  He wasn’t keen at first and just stood there not wanting to move.”   Did you use a pattern? “I used a Simplicity pattern number 8824 but tis was …

Liberty Sewing Projects

Anna JP has been using the Liberty darks small pieces pack to make more Liberty Sewing Projects.  I absolutely love this gorgeous tea cosy.  Maybe it is an English tradition, but a tea cosy means that you can make a pot of tea (which always tastes better than dipping a tea bag into a mug) and drink several cups at the right temperature.     Anna JP says “This is made by sewing parallel strips of different widths, which are then joined together into an irregular pattern. I tried to balance out the prints so that my preferred ones took …

Gorgeous Liberty Dress

Laura from the office has made this Gorgeous Liberty Dress.  She’s used the Strawberry Thief fabric from the new 40th classics anniversary collection.  It’s the same fabric as Annie’s dress last week.  Both are really cute and work really well in this fabric. I asked Laura about the sewing project.  She said “I fell in love with the green, teal and coral colours of this new Strawberry Thief print and just knew it would make a lovely dress! But what kind of dress, I wondered… It had to be a something simple that didn’t take away from the detailed print …
