Liberty & London

Trip down to London yesterday & spent ages in the wonderful Liberty store! Had a good look round the haberdashery department, bought some supplies for a sewing project.  I dared to enter their amazing Designer Vintage section - rather out of my price range but always inspiring! Have listed some great vintage 70s tea dresses in my ebay shop, including one homemade from a Liberty Tana lawn (always the loveliest fabric I think - the peach dress shown) and a 40s inspired blue & mauve number by Marion Donaldson.

  1. I just LOVE that pattern!! In my youth (ahem!) I would definitely have gone for the skirt,top and petticoat scenario on the left....in fact I would wear it NOW if it were summery enough.In the day I even had lace espadrilles like those....where have all of the feminine fashions gone??
