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 Quilt – Jewel Palace BOM Progress

Lara from the studio is making the Liberty Quilt Jewel Palace Quilt BOM as a little bit of sewing fun.  Each month, she’s sewing the blocks together so that we can show you the beautiful quilt as it unfolds. It’s a month by month English Paper Piecing project that will grow into a beautiful Liberty quilt. I asked Lara if she was enjoying the sew along.  This is what she had to say. “I’m thoroughly enjoying the project and am finding it really therapeutic.  Once my children have gone to bed, out comes my sewing box.  I sit and sew …

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 …

Liberty Sewing Organiser

The Liberty Sewing Organiser shown here today was made by Anne Commin from the Lewes Sewing Bees.  It’s always a bit of a surprise when we receive a project from one of the ‘Bees’.  This one was such fun to open as each layer revealed another joyful hand sewn item.    The sewing box is made using a food steamer and has been beautifully refurbished to include a stunning EPP (English Paper Piecing) lid.  This uses the Mitsi white on white as a background fabric with the exclusive mustard and greys collection fabrics as the sweet hexagons for decoration. When …

Liberty Boho Dress

I asked the ‘Lewes Sewing Bees’ if they would like to take on some sewing projects using my new exclusives. They were really keen and have come up with some gorgeous ideas.  The first of these projects is this beautiful Liberty Dress which uses all of the fabrics in my Exclusive Mustard and Grey collection. It’s made by Veronica Greenslade (@veronicalovingtosew on Instagram) and I love the cool hippy 70’s vibe that she’s created. I asked Veronica about the make:   1.  Which pattern did you use and why? “I was inspired by all the lovely tiered boho dresses that …

A Beautiful Quilt – using Alice Caroline Exclusives

One of my customers Tracy Aplin has made this Beautiful Quilt for the Quilt SOS project.  She wanted to make a quilt using my exclusives.  Yes I thought! Here it is.  Gosh I really love the use of plain colours alongside the delicate tones of the exclusives. Tracy hand pieced the quilt top using a pattern by Judy Newman called Emma Mary. It comes in templates making it easy to cut with a rotary cuter and hand sew.  Here’s Tracy’s work in progress. She really enjoyed making it but also says that she wants to make it again in a …
