I've had this Liberty lawn sitting on the shelf for ages, but never got the courage to snip into it until last night. After all, what good does it do sitting on a shelf?
I made this very simple summer top using half of it. I was sent the retro stripy bias binding from a kind reader, M in Adelaide. It has chocolate and cream diagonal stripes and is a lot more fun than a plain binding, in my opinion.
This top is another example of me just making something up and going along with it. After cutting, I couldn't believe I had done that to my beloved Liberty treasure. But it worked out okay, and the top fits nicely. Although the binding required a couple of episodes of Miranda to complete. What a brilliant laugh that show is.
