Liberty of London Fabrics - an obsession
First, Happy Mother's Day!
About three weeks ago I developed an obsession over Liberty fabrics. I bought the "Liberty" boots from Target for rainy days.
I also developed a Liberty Blog obsession: I loved Gertie's Cecil Chapman Tribute Dress, re-read Eugenia's Liberty Wisdom and gazed in awe at her Shirt. I fell in with deep admiration over Peter's Wonderful Shirt.
What have you made readers? I'd love to know! I'd also be very interested to see why Liberty is so special (and expensive) - is the cotton soft? Pliable? What is it that makes it wonderful other than the print?
I've been traveling (to DC) and was unusually tired the past week so I apologize for my dearth of posts or sewing. I didn't even visit *gasp* any fabric stores! Crazy talk, I know!
