Trends change, but Liberty print is forever. Inspired by the major Liberty design retrospective at the Dovecot Gallery in Edinburgh – which celebrated Liberty’s ongoing contributions to arts, crafts and fashion since 1875 – our designers looked to mid-century dressmaking patterns to create an all-new range of styles that perfectly complement classic and seasonal Liberty prints.
With over 140 years of fashion history to draw from, our in-house designers raided Liberty’s trove of vintage imagery to create these striking new styles. Visual inspirations ranged from hand-painted fabric advertisements to technicolour ‘60s fashion editorials, featuring iconic figures such as Twiggy and Grace Coddington. The result? Vintage-infused silhouettes with a fresh and modern feel.
Personalisable variations in many of the designs include different sleeves, lengths and collars, with a choice between silk satin, crepe de chine, viscose and Tana Lawn™ cotton bases. Find ‘40s-style tea dresses and ‘60s smock dresses alongside ‘70s bell-sleeved shirts, jumpsuits and maxi dresses, plus nostalgic smock dresses for even the youngest Liberty fans.
Liberty has always championed individuality and creativity when it comes to fashion, and these dressmaking patterns represent the next generation of at-home Liberty craft.
