I think Wiltshire would have to be my favourite Liberty print. And this is by far my favourite colourway. This is my third make in this print. Like Kristie, I've been hoarding this fabric for a special project. Never mind the fact that I can always buy more of it.
The original plan was to make a smock style top and combine a beautiful white cotton lace remnant with the Liberty Wiltshire. But I could never get the combo of the lace and Liberty perfect, or find the perfect pattern. I also just wanted a loose blouse that I could wear all the time in hot weather. So I gave up on matching the lace and Liberty and went with the simple plan.
Pattern: Vogue 8495, size 16
Fabric: Liberty Wiltshire in Red from Shaukat
Alterations: Removed yoke facing and finished neck and armholes with self fabric bias binding.
I wore it today around the house and to swimming lessons with my denim Moss Mini and a pair of polka dot Tom's shoes. I paired it with a red cardi this morning which really changed the look of the print.
Love it. Now Melbourne, bring on Summer!!
