Liberty Baby Dress

Lucy from the studio has made this adorable Liberty Baby Dress as a present her niece.  This is made using one of the gorgeous Liberty prints from the SS22 collection.Liberty Baby DressHere’s what Lucy had to say about this make.  “One of the (many!) things I love about Liberty fabrics is the abundance of tiny, intricate details in some of their Tana Lawn® designs.  This, along with their lovely softness, makes them just perfect for children’s clothes, however, with my own children now all grown up, I usually just settle for a nostalgic rummage through these beautiful prints…until now! My cousin has recently had a baby, so when the new Spring Summer designs arrived at the studio I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  Yes, finally…I had a good excuse to make a teeny, tiny, frilly dress for a little girl again!”

“I chose to use Sleeping Beauty C from the new Wonderful Fantastical collection (I mean the name alone was a good enough reason to choose this one!).  I absolutely love the bright, cheerful colours in this fabric and the way they pick out all the minute flowers in the design.  I then chose to use Ed D to make the accent frills as this shade of yellow matched exactly with the yellow hints in the main fabric, and it is also a very small print which I think works well in terms of scale.”

“I used Simplicity pattern S8893.  I eventually chose to make the dress rather than the pinafore simply because our Summer weather here in the UK often still requires layers and I felt this would be more of an option under the dress. I made it a little shorter than the dress pattern though, in order to show off those fab frilly pants!! I also added the shoulder frills from the pinafore and made a much narrower version of the hem band.
These alterations were all fairly straightforward and the pattern was clear and versatile.  The trickiest part of this make was the sheer tininess of the pieces!  As I said it’s been a while since I’ve made anything this small.”

“I am really pleased with the way this little outfit turned out and I have now packaged it up and sent it as a gift to my cousin.  Little Imogen will soon be taking her very first steps into the sunshine and, with all the worries and stresses we carry with us in our adult lives, I feel that this is a really important reminder to us all that the world is still a beautiful place, filled with wonderful adventures!”
