I can’t possibly be the only one who hesitates to cut into beautiful Liberty of London yardage. But I did buy it to sew it into something.
I chose a wonderful pattern by Sis Boom, the Lucy Halter Dress. I am in love with the Sis Boom pattern line for a couple of reasons – they give excellent sizing advice, and they include cutting lines for different cup sizes! The patterns are also technically well written. I love that I can fit these to my body type.
The Tana Lawn fabric by Liberty is absolutely amazing to work with. It has the softest hand and perfect grain lines. And it goes well with my hair. Since we are planning another trip to London, I decided it was okay to use it since I can buy more next time!
This pose was my rather lame version of the Big Fig Newton. I put this in here just to see if my mom is reading my blog. Every photo session from my junior and senior high years has a Big Fig pose in it. I could usually elicit a “stop that!” and maybe a choice word from my mother.
I was so tickled with this dress that I cut into another chunk of my Liberty lawn. I’m sure you’re waiting with bated breath to see that one. Meanwhile, here is a gratuitous puppy picture.
I made little Miss Dorito a Minion outfit/jammies. Way too big as you can see. She wouldn’t move for awhile, and when she did, with her first footsteps she walked right out of it.

The dress is lovely!! I love the shape, it’s very flattering! Liberty fabric is just amazing isn’t it!! So beautiful like a piece of art! And great to work with! Have you ever sewed Liberty silk? I really want to try some but worry about messing up such lovely fabric!! I blogged my Liberty dress yesterday http://ditsy-tulip.com/love-sewing-magazine-ruby-dress/ 🌷🌷🌷

Liberty lawn is an absolute dream! I’ve never sewn the silk – it is too hot here to wear it. I checked out your Liberty dress, I love it!
