Since I was young, I’ve mainly built my wardrobe on bright neon colors and big, fun prints – usually florals. However, I’ve always really loved the simplicity of a good black and white stripe. Two of my all-time favorite sweaters that I’ve owned, both of which are still in my closet today, were black and white striped. I love that it is a combination of a classic print and classic, neutral colors but it still offers something a little more bold and interesting than your solid black or white.
Is there anything more lovely and romantic than Liberty fabric? I’ve admired it from afar for quite awhile, but this was my first time working with it. It is definitely worthy of all the hype that it receives! I went all in with my first cut of Liberty fabric – a top for me, a dress for my Mini, and a couple of ridiculous matching accessories to top it off!
Last summer, I had a little fun sewing up Father’s Day presents for my husband and his brother. Early in the Spring, I recognized that I had somehow ended up with a small collection of button down shirts from my husband and his brother that had ripped, torn, or otherwise worn out in a way that was no longer usable. I’d kept them to the side, thinking that someday it would be fun to use the fabric to make something new. As I was poking around looking for what I might make next, I came across these old shirts and realized that I had a great opportunity!
I fell in love with this fabric immediately when I saw it online. The color is such a beautiful rosy shade of grape purple, and I had a good feeling that it would pair nicely with so many things in my closet. It made a lovely Christmas outfit this year!
