I’m sure you can understand why I was powerless when Liberty released this gorgeous seasonal floral print titled ‘Anna’s Garden’ in 2013. Firstly, my love of Liberty is well known. Secondly, the awesome print was derived from a 1971 scarf design. I love a bit of history! Thirdly, how about those colours? This print came in three colourways, but this was the one that made my heart sing. Finally, did I mention it’s called ANNA’S Garden? Yep, it’s got my name on it! Powerless… did I mention powerless?
So, when you pair a fabulous Liberty print with your favourite pattern, the Aeolian Tee Shirt Dress the result is one happy sewist.
When I’m re-using a pattern, I like to mix it up a little, so with this version I lengthened the sleeves and used visible binding on the neckline.
