Thing 97

The Eliza D Tana Lawn with the blue flowers is mostly used up (a few small scraps may pop up in future Things), but fear not, Liberty Week can continue. I came back from London with a couple of souvenirs… 





The top one is called The Atrium D Tana Lawn. From their website: “Based on an illustrative design from 1972 with a 1920s feel, The Atrium fabric print represents Liberty’s iconic Central Atrium space on the Ground Floor.” The pink one with cherry blossoms is Mitsi B Tana Lawn.

I set the Mitsi aside for now and pulled out The Atrium.

I love the design but couldn’t imagine wearing it as a blouse. Instead, I bought half a metre, enough to make a scarf. The Liberty cottons are so soft and silky against the skin so a scarf had extra appeal.

I cut it in half, making two long strips of a quarter metre, and sewed them to make one long strip. Then, with wrong sides together, I serged one end and the long side, turned it right side out and hand stitched it closed.

It’s pretty and artsy and a pleasure to wear.

Here’s my sister modelling for me again. She’s having a much better hair day than I am and is thus far more blog-worthy.
