tana lawn liberty fabrics perfect for skirts

The sun is out – well, on most days 🙂 – and spring is in the air. Away with the chunky knits and wooly sweaters and in with the fresh frocks, bare legs and spring sewing.

Let us the official start the Sewing (Bee) Season!

Are you enjoying watching the journeys of the wonderful sewers from the Great British Sewing Bee? We certainly are!

This week, we’re all about skirts! Pick your favourite pattern and leave a comment below to tell us why you like it and which fabric you’d choose and we’ll pick two lucky winners on Monday evening 23May, before Episode 2 and send them the skirt sewing patterns they chose from our website. We’ve recently published a roundup of our favourite skirt patterns, take a look.

And since we’re talking about skirts, we wanted to make some recommendations:


Liberty Tana Lawn – Mabelle – blue (£15.95/m)

This fabric is gorgeously soft and drapes beautifully. It’s light to wear – perfect for warmer weather and holidays but also for layering when cooler. This clean botanical print is a mix of blue flowers with foliage in browns on an off-white background.

I do love a pencil skirt but I’m still looking for the perfect pattern. I think the collette selene could be it – a great shape and pockets! I think it would be lovely in cord (it’s still pretty cold in Scotland!) So I’d make it in the blue liberty kingly cord, subtle yet intresting for work.

Definitely Hollyburn – it’s got swish, just enough volume and it’s got pockets! And you can make it in any fabric you like.

The new fabrics are yummy, too 🙂

I love the look of the Sewaholic Hollyburn – plus it has pockets! I think it’d be perfect in a Liberty cord x

I’m currently coveting the Colette Selene!

I’d love the HotPatterns lantern skirt in a Liberty Tana Lawn – bold colour like Alma


Suzan Dury May 22, 2016 at 12:02 pm

Forgot to mention in comment- the lantern skirt is really different from anything I’ve done before, I love the shape and would add pockets. It would work as a summer or winter skirt – summer in tana lawn like Alma, winter in a needlecord or wool mix.

I’d love to sew up the Hollyburn skirt it has a great flattering shape and pockets with detail. I’d use a Bloomsbury collection fabric like Garrett B – so summery and fresh looking.

I like the Sewaholic pattern 1404-I realize it’s geared towards beginners but what a great pattern for a solid TNT to make a variety of skirts, long and short, for the seasons ahead! I like the Liberty Tana Lawn in the Mabelle coloring–a great mix of year round colors
