My Sweet Liberty Top – I loved my last Painter’s Meadow Liberty top (see January Blog) so much that I decided to make another in one of the beautiful fabrics from the new Contemporary Classics collection! You can never have too many sweet Liberty tops!
This time I’ve made the top from Yoshi which is a much loved Liberty fabric, originally designed for the seasonal Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. It’s been brought back in the Contemporary Classics Collection as part of some of the most popular Liberty prints which have been re-launched in new colour ways.
I’m loving that it’s a versatile top that can be worn in two different ways, on its own for summer, or over a long sleeve top in winter – extending the Liberty season! Think I also said in my January blog that I loved this top as it was great for dressing up with some sparkly jewellery for an evening out as well as being great to wear casually in the daytime too. A fab all rounder sewing project!
Yoshi is an illustrative hand drawn print with amazing line work and really lovely detail – creatures like birds, deer, rabbits and horses which appear amongst wild flowers are really sweet additions to this fabric. The cute animals and flowers make this fabric so versatile for lots of other projects too – would look great in a boys quilt!
The fabric was designed by Yoshi Watanabe, a Japanese graphic designer and illustrator – look her up if you love kawaii (cute) Japanese designs as her drawings are stunning.

The Pattern: I’ve used a New Look pattern number 6895 variation A. It’s a really easy to follow pattern and uses easy sewing techniques with a bias binding around the neckline and armhole edges.
