On a recent trip down to London with Mr Deravelled and the Moomin, we happened upon the historic London landmark - Liberty of London. Having never been inside Liberty before (although an avid viewer of the documentary), we went in for a look around.
After negotiating the ground floor full of beautiful accessories, cosmetics and chocolate, we made our way up the creaking staircase to the fabric floor. It was smaller than I imagined, but still fabulous. It was at this point that Mr Deravelled said that he would buy me three metres of the fabric of my choice (lucky me!). After squeeing a lot, I started the serious business of trying to choose just one design. After very nearly going for the Strawberry Thief, I instead decided upon the above tana lawn, in Morris A. Thank you, Mr Deravelled!
It really is an experience shopping in Liberty. They take so much care over the cutting of the fabric, and wrap it so beautifully in Liberty tissue paper. They even put it in a fancy purple gift bag, emblazoned with the Liberty crest in gold. Just as well, really, as the fabric is very expensive. So expensive, in fact, that I am now too afraid to use it! Do you ever have that problem?
