New season Liberty fabrics are always exciting and Spring/Summer 2011 especially so, because the 50 (50!!!) new designs took inspiration from children’s illustrators. So I picked a few of my favourite prints and put them back into a drawing of some dresses I’d like to be wearing this summer. Sadly my sewing skills never progressed beyond the simplest of home furnishings (damn you year 11 D&T lessons, all I can make are stupid cushions and wallhangings. What use are wallhangings to me?!), so as drawings they are destined to stay.
In the illustration above I used (patterns not drawn by me!):
Sally Haysom’s Princess Emerald
Jane Ray’s David Joe
Quentin Blake inspired Charlie’s Paisley
and Asami Sayo.
Aren’t they lovely?
