Cornflower

Posted on

While fabric shopping the other day, I came across a group of Liberty of London fabrics that I had never seen before.  In a slightly heavier cotton than their traditional Tana Lawn, these fabrics have a striking, rustic quality that immediately appealed to me.  Each is in vivid colors and patterns reminiscent of Japanese woodblock prints.

Cornflower is the first sheath in a series of three.  Bright blue cornflowers pop against an inky black background, sprinkled with white polka dots.  An aquamarine blue silk dupioni sash highlights the waist.  The deep v-neck of the bodice is accentuated by a lavish silver chain necklace, dripping with Japanese Magatama glass beads in black and shades of blue. 

This fashion is modeled on a Silkstone, but will also fit Fashion Royalty dolls.

  2. Oh yeah, I can see why you had to snap this fabric up!
    Beautiful.

    I love your nod to the Japanese woodblock print with the silky sash that is hinting at “kimono”

  4. What a gorgeous print, those blue cornflowers are so lovely! The addition of the blue sash was a perfect call.

  5. Hilda,

    It is lovely. The fabric is so pretty and the colors look wonderful on this doll. Can’t wait to see the other two in the series.
