Dress made of Liberty print


Empire cut dress made with ribbon print Liberty lawn.

The design, pattern making and sewing on both accounts is by me.

Lawn cloth or lawn is a plain weave textile, originally linen but now chiefly cotton.
Lawn is designed using fine, high count yarns, which results in a silky feel.

Cotton lawn from Liberty of London is one of my favorite fabric. It’s actually primarily made for quilting, but the softness of the cotton makes it perfect for garments. It’s light, flattering, easy to iron and they have many wonderful prints. This is why Liberty stands out compared to other quilting fabric manufactures. Normally quilting fabrics are made in coarser cotton calico, which I don’t really like in clothes. Liberty lawn can be very expensive, but you can find really good deals on Ebay.co.uk, just type in Liberty lawn in the search box. I especially like Liberty’s wonderful art nouveau inspired prints.
