liberty

20130831-172236.jpgOh, it’s not a knit! I’ve been hoarding this Liberty of London fabric for several years. Peter got it for me from the mothership in London, and I stashed it away because I was afraid I would screw it up somehow. I decided it was time to break out and take a chance. I finally have a button-down shirt pattern I like, so I made a short-sleeve version of it. Liberty lawn is so lightweight and yet buttery soft. It is a treat to wear! I’d like to make some different collar versions of this shirt pattern, but that will require me to use my brain, and it is limited in capacity, so it might take me a while. In the meantime, I will be sewing some more knits.

    Lovely! I need more shirts, but I’m trying to avoid buying anything for a while because I know my sizes are going to change soon.

    Sweet print, and a very pretty shirt. As for the “slutty quotient” on the dress a few posts back, I think you have a few more inches in length and width before it is noticeably slutty!
