One of Liberty’s best loved prints, Betsy is a particularly versatile design with endless possibilities. This small, stylised floral was originally created in 1933 by the enigmatic designer D.S., who was behind many of our other favourite Liberty Classics of that era – here, Betsy is given new life with fresh colours in highlighter shades.
The design is printed onto our Harvard Denim, a heavy cotton stretch fabric prized for its strength and high-spec technical performance. With its typical drill structure and hardwearing construction, this fabric is perfect for heavier garment pieces. Use it to create boxy jackets with matching jeans, or a multi-pocketed workman’s coat.
“Of course Betsy is here, but she has a new look. Breezy tones of sunshine yellow, coral and sky blue bring a modern update to this Liberty classic.” – Shona Heath

Visionary set designer Shona Heath brings her fantastical touch to Liberty print, in a unique new collaboration created for the Liberty Fabrics Design Series. Inspired by Philip Ridley’s 1996 children’s book The Hooligan’s Shampoo, Heath constructed miniature sculptures in her studio from everyday corner shop objects – off-kilter scenes of rubber-band bows, flowers made from washing up sponges, and discarded banana skins were painted into beautiful artworks by the Liberty Fabrics team, appearing here in a parade of vibrant colours and textures.
