Felicite Teal Top

Lucy from the studio has made this gorgeous Felicite Teal Top for her daughter Darcey using my exclusive fabric from the latest collection.  It’s so lovely to see this fabric being used in a garment. Summer seems like a far away time now but I’m planning on sewing my way through the latest UK lockdown and hopefully having lots of lovely things to wear when we are allowed out again.     I asked Lucy about making the top. What pattern did you use?   “I didn’t use a commercial pattern for this top as the shape is fairly simple.  Darcey …

Liberty Japanese Bag

Anne Commin from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this gorgeous Liberty Japanese Bag using fabrics from my exclusive Liberty Butterfly Garden collection.  It’s full reversible with a lovely patchwork on one side and then the large print Anna’s Garden Teal on the other.  I love reversible bags as you can match to whatever you are wearing on that particular day.   I asked Anne about the sewing project:   Where did you get the inspiration to make this lovely bag? “I’ve just completed a Japanese quilt which was a whole new fabric adventure. This has inspired me to make …

Quilted Liberty Jacket

Gill Nicholls from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this stunning Quilted Liberty Jacket.  She’s used Anna’s Garden Teal from my exclusive ‘Butterfly Garden’ collection and has lined it with Plain Light Pink Tana Lawn.  I thoroughly enjoyed modelling this beautiful jacket and quite fancy making one myself!  I asked Gill about the project.     Why did you choose the fabric? “I chose Anna’s garden fabric because it was a stunning large print with gorgeous colours. A quilted jacket seemed a good choice although the fabric would look amazing as many different garments.”     Which pattern did you …

Liberty Wiltshire Blouse

Cristina Emslie from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this beautiful Liberty Wiltshire Blouse using one of our Alice Caroline Exclusive colourways.  It’s called Wiltshire Blueberry and looks really pretty in this top.  I asked Cristine about the make.     Why did you choose the fabric? “When I first saw the exclusives, the one that caught my attention was the one Gill used for her jacket (Anna’s Garden Teal – project coming up next week) and I wanted to make a pair of pjs with it. I was a bit slow at showing my preference and when we were …

Gorgeous Liberty Nightdress

Susanna Burton from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this Gorgeous Liberty Nightdress.  It uses the Felicite Lilac from my new Exclusive ‘Butterfly Garden’ collection.  The finished result is simply beautiful and will be a delight to wear.  I think I would swan around in it all day too if I could!  Thank you so much Susanna for sharing your beautiful project with us.   I asked Susanna about her gorgeous make.   We love your nightdress – which pattern did you choose and why? “Butterick B5792 as I thought the ruffle neckline was very pretty and would add interest.” …

Beautiful Liberty Table Runner

I’m showcasing another one of the Lewes sewing Bees projects this week – this beautiful Liberty Table Runner has been made by Anne Commin (you can see her on @anagrananne on Instagram).  She’s used a selection of fabrics from the ‘Butterfly Garden’ exclusive collection.   I absolutely love the use of Anna’s Garden Teal – a hint in the binding and leaves on the table runner front, then beautifully backed in it too.  The softer colours of Felicite, Danjo, Mini Edenham, Strawberry Thief and two Wiltshire colour ways from the collection are perfect for the apples.      Anne tells …

Butterflies & Buds Liberty Quilt

Veronica Greenslade from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this stunning Butterflies & Buds Liberty Quilt using the new Alice Caroline Exclusive ‘Butterfly Garden Collection’.   This gorgeous quilt showcases the ‘Butterfly Garden’ (reminiscent of an English Garden) perfectly with appliquéd butterflies coming out of a beautiful vase of flowers.     I asked Veronica about the quilt:   We love your ‘Bud and Butterflies Quilt’ – how did you come up with the design? “Once I knew these Exclusives were called the Butterfly Garden Collection and a butterfly was going to feature on the Betsy print I knew butterflies and …

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” …
