Day Dress in Liberty of London Prince George

This print was created in honor of the birth of Prince George, son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  To me, it evokes a summer evening as the sun is fading, but everything retains the warmth of the day and smells amazing.  The print is a tiny floral of wild roses and ripe summer raspberries in the colors of pink, mango, cream, and sage.  The bodice has a V neck decorated with a silk band and bow detail in iridescent mango silk.  The full skirt has an underskirt of golden yellow tulle.

Fresh as a Daisy Coat Ensemble

Few colors evoke the freshness of spring like yellow and white.  Here in the Pacific Northwest, the daffodils and forsythia are in full bloom, so yellow is everywhere.  This coat ensemble combines white eyelet with bright yellow silk taffeta.  The classic swing coat is made from white cotton eyelet lined with bright yellow that shines through the holes of the eyelet.  Pearls serve as buttons and a diamante daisy brooch with a yellow center sparkles on the collar.  The accompanying dress has a white eyelet bodice lined with yellow.  The full skirt is made from crisp yellow silk taffeta.  Pearl shimmer tulle gives the skirt extra volume.

Day Dress in Liberty of London Phoebe Pink

A stunning miniature floral print, Phoebe was inspired by print impressions found at Liberty’s Merton print works.  The Phoebe fabric design was first printed as a scarf in 1966 and has been used in Classic Tana Lawn since 2002.  Shades of pink ranging from mauve to nearly red appear in the print.  The bodice is off the shoulder with a V neck.  A narrow band of raspberry pink silk sits mid waist with a bow as accent.

The skirt is given fullness with layers of raspberry pink tulle.

Midnight Garden Bubble Dress

One of my favorite Liberty of London prints “Wildflower” in a dark and moody colorway makes up this elegant bubble dress.  The inky dark ground of a midnight sky has pops of turquoise, yellow, and red from tiny wild strawberries.  The strapless, dropped waist bodice flares into a voluminous bubble skirt.  A large silk bow in dusky turquoise decorates the hip.
