Liberty winter top

It's a frizzling day here today, as my boys would say; positively arctic. Hopefully that translates to a bumper snow season.

The heating is turned up and I'm in my woollens today, as I potter in the studio. I just made a little top for Adelaide in a Liberty remnant from about three Townmouse seasons ago.

It's the same pattern as this one, with less volume in the body and sleeves.  Adelaide is at creche today, so it remains to be seen if I have perfected the fit.

Liberty winter top detail

It's a bit hard to see the detail of the top in this busy fabric.  In this case that's a good thing, as there's a rather wonky seam there on the neckline that I'm not that proud of.  A few sewing challenges in this pattern.



Hi Kris, speaking about frizzling days, I have a question for you. I am trying to find some very warm but soft wool jumpers for Will for this winter. I have been to the obvious shops, which I won't name, but they are all a bit itchy!! Can you give me any tips on where to buy. Thanks


What a lovely top! Luckily seam wonkiness is in the eye of the beholder and in this case only something you would spot.

little something

Lovely !

Super mignon, l'imprimé est trop beau et la poupée magnifique!


Love you work - just wish it came in bigger sizes. Would love to dress my 9 and 10 year olds girls in your designs (hint, hint)!


What a pretty top! Such beautiful fabric. I'm working on a quilt for my eldest in those shades. Speaking of which, I see your quilt is moving along ~ It's so beautiful!!
