Firstly, I wish you all a very happy weekend and hope you all get to enjoy this well needed sunny weather!
For most of you, I'm sure it's no surprise that I'm a lover of all things made in Liberty and have selected fabrics from their beautiful collection for many seasons. And now that it really is 'dress weather' I thought I'd give you a little insight into our chosen prints and the inspiration behind their beauty.
All printed on Liberty Tana lawn, this cotton is simply the finest, a smooth canvas for their incredibly detailed prints and with all the credentials of the 'Better Cotton Initiative', you can be sure that this cotton is kinder to the environment too.
So enjoy a scroll through our swatch book of Liberty (actually an old accounts ledger where I stick all our fabrics ) and as sweetener, for this Bank Holiday weekend only, I am offering free postage for all UK orders.
Have a wonderful weekend
This small all-over floral print was originally created for Liberty in 1966. Meandering trails of wildflowers create a sense of movement, like a gentle breeze sweeping through a meadow of blossoms.
A contemporary Liberty print which they called Hazy Days. We renamed this print Waterfloral as it reminded us of blurred watercolour florals and the dreamy paintings of Monet's garden.
No prizes for why we named this cheerful print Pottery, with it's happy blooms dangling out of blue and white china vases.
Based on an archive design from 1935, this charming botanical epitomises the classic Liberty print style. Soft yellow primroses clamber across a midnight blue ground with the freshness of white flowers adding crisp definition. Nostalgic and modern in our new Pavilion dress.
In this enchanted meadow landscape, the flowers loom as large as trees, with a river meandering slowly through the flower speckled pastures. The design is drawn in pencil and filled in with flat colour, finished with a highlighting outline.
Originally hand painted in 1992, this large-scale floral is the epitome of a garden in full bloom. Bold painterly flowers including peonies, violets, roses and poppies create an extravaganza of texture and form.
Chive is a famous all over Liberty design, printed in various colours since its creation in 1979. We selected this green and blue version from their archive and it is an exclusive to us this year.
