A Library of Liberty of London fabrics

For me the story of the fabric is an essential part of the garment.  
That's why I love Liberty of London fabrics.
I used to have a paper journal where I glued samples from all the Liberty fabrics I had sewn with, recording the dates and names and stories of the fabrics I used.   
This is my electronic version of that journal.

Bought: 1.5
Collection: Spring Summer 2015 Pictures and Conversation
Product ID: 03635151A, PCN 6173,
Made into: peplumless blouse
Fabric Story:
'What is the use of a design collection', thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations'. And in another moment she was considering how in the world to create one.' 
'Pictures and Conversations' celebrates the 150th anniversary of the first publication of Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. Both design and colour were inspired by pictures and conversations within 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass' and experiences related to them.

Oxford Liberty fabric is inspired by a trip to Oxford and is created from Liberty scarves from the late 1960s. These have been blended with personal experiences obtained when the in-house design studio were fortunate enough to have a private guided ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ tour around Christ Church water meadows and the streets of Oxford, lead by expert and author Mark Davies.

'Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do.' – Lewis Carroll

"Mo Coppoletta has an international reputation for unique and exquisite tattoos, so was the perfect choice to represent this collection inspired by the art of touch. 

Joy and Sorrow is derived from a fascination Mo has with nursery rhymes and their dark magic. He wanted to symbolise the Liberty peacock by using different kinds of birds. Mo adorned them with strings of pearls, deco brooches and surrounded them with dragonflies, all of which were inspired by Liberty archive prints from the 1920s, creating a surrealist design with deep dark grounds."

From the Liberty of London website: The world famous sub-tropical Tresco Abbey Garden, and its extraordinary diversity of plant life drew the Liberty Art Fabrics Studio to this small idyllic island. With plant species from 80 countries, ranging from Brazil to New Zealand and Burma to South Africa. The jaw dropping scenery and flora of Tresco led to a succulent series of prints drawn and painted from hand cut plant specimens, still life and photography. 
The treasures in the Abbey Garden are not limited to florals, there is also a collection of mosaics and shipwrecked figure heads, all these inspired this design: an exotic floral conversational with spiky palms, tropical plants, huge succulents mixed with mysterious statues.

Collection: Liberty Art Fabrics SS 2013 Guerilla Gardening
Fabric Story:

The design inspiration was a 1950s archive print which was then re-worked and hand painted to depict Guerrilla Gardeners bringing plants to an urban landscape, creating areas of beauty amongst the architecture. 

Guerrilla gardening is a loose global movement of gardening without boundaries, digging up land and bringing life to neglected public spaces. 
This group of prints is inspired by Richard Reynolds, founder of Guerrilla Gardening.org, and his nocturnal transformation of the abandoned flower beds and roundabouts of Elephant and Castle in London.

  1. I love Liberty too, but have only used it twice (well three times, as I recently refashioned my no-longer fitting Liberty skirt into one for my daughter). I so admire your digital journal, it even got me looking up my Liberty book to check out swatches!

  2. Oh I love this idea! I'm crazy for Liberty fabrics too, and have many of the same prints. I think I might have to borrow this idea for my blog, if you don't mind?
