|One view of the African dress|
Clever use of two fabrics.
The 'grass' underneath it is
made of tape measures.
Why didn't I buy anything? Because the night before I was looking for something in my fabric cupboard and I was shocked at how much fabric I already have. Just didn't find anything at Liberty that I felt I had to add to it.
Nevertheless, going to Liberty is my idea of heaven. I love the building, the displays, the clothes, the home furnishings and most of all, the fabric department. Sometimes it's enough just to look.
What I did see, was the Liberty interpretation of two of the dresses from the 'Eastern' week on GBSB - the African dress and the Mondrian dress (which I remember from my youth). Both were lovely and worth seeing.
Last week I bought the Mondrian pattern and plan to make it - sometime. If I do, it will be in the solid, bold colours of the original. Still, the Liberty one is fun.

The Liberty fabrics are fun.

I loved the wax printed fabric used on GBSB
but I also love this.

I could have eaten three of then! Delicious.
