Liverpool, Jersey and Sweater Knit, Oh My!
See what our talented sewists were inspired to make!
For the love of liverpool <3
Liverpool is a structured fabric, giving interest and body to pleats and other details. Great for shorts, pants, twirly skirts.
Amelia Lane Designs created this handy info sheet to help understand all the fabric bases!
Don't forget the SOLIDS!
Solids are great own their own or coordinating with a print! How many ALD coordinates can you spot in this week's inspiration makes?
NEW LIVERPOOL PRINTS!
New small dots navy liverpool!
You might remember we have large dots on navy, but now we also have small dots on navy. Because: dots! The scale of these dots is about the same as the fuchsia dots. Shakita made a great mashed twirly dress using the Rad Slim CYOA bodice with the Halla free Twirly skirt.
Here's the large dots for comparison:
This kid is so spunky! Such a highlight for me every time I write this blog to see her latest outfit and sassy poses! This week she's wearing an Aurora Raglan from Sofiona in the new Emerson liverpool. Paired with Mustard DBP sleeves and bows are her navy DBP Tiffany leggings from Simple Life. Made by Kendel.
A new face? Yes! I am pretty sure it's his first time we're seeing Jan's boy on the blog! Clay is wearing the Ellie and Mac Be Creative Hoodie in Emerson liverpool with Navy DBP. It's a matching set with his Made by Runi Kids' Slim Fit Joggers also in Emerson Liverpool.
A trio of toddlers in liverpool! Emily has been busy! Left to right, Finn in Emerson Liverpool Peek-a-boo Beachcombers, Lawrence in Emerson Liverpool Toby K Rouge River Shorts and Char in Lane Liverpool Striped Swallow Coachella shorts. What cute, coordinated cousins they are!
Aunt Emily deserves some Lane Liverpool too for all her hardwork! Matching Jogger Shorts!
Liverpool is perfect for twirly dresses, but it can be so many other things - shorts and joggers for sure but how about a hoodie?! Sarah had a vision, and I'll admit I was skeptical but she sent me this pic and I will never question her again! This is amazing! Peoria liverpool with navy DBP Kaja Hoodie from Mamili 1910.
The last couple rounds of new arrival fabric blogs have included a bunch of Ellie and Mac Twist it up tops! I know I saw Brittanie, Sarah and Gwen all sew them! I was curious, so I grabbed the pattern and taaadaaaa! Peoria liverpool twist it up top!
Another talented sewist with an eye for color matching coordinates! This is Jan's new Corner Dress by Made by Runi Patterns! Chandler liverpool with light blue DBP for the skirt! This pattern just came out so she hid these pics from us for a day or two and I lost my mind seeing them, need this dress immediately!
Kelle outdid herself AGAIN! Liverpool romper/bodysuit! What an idea and of course the creative photos too! Awesome! She used the Rebecca Page Jumpsuit with Chandler liverpool and a dash of extra creativity for this cool photo shoot idea!
Looking Mavue-a-lous, Laura! Liverpool joggers really dress up this look! Laura used the Emerson floral liverpool to make Urban Joggers by Wardrobe by Me. She paired with her Zoe Dolman from Sinclair Patterns in solid mauve DBP.
Aspen liverpool is really more purpley than how it photographs. It's not a true pink, it's a deeper blush with some lavender tones. It's pretty much my perfect color! I made a Sweetie Pie Dress by Ellie and Mac.
Brittanie made a pair of perfect Annelaine Tangerine dresses for her girls with Peyton Liverpool! Can't wait to see the next episode of their twirling videos! Brittanie shared in the ALD Facebook group and it was adorable!
Wide Gray Stripe Jersey
In addition to the new liverpools, there's a new jersey this week! Wide gray stripe is s easy, casual and a total staple. Sonia made a top with Simplicity 8424 pattern that is perfect for pairing with athletics!
Michael made these sets, Parker DBP released last week and we've been waiting to show you these great sister photos and now the Wide Gray Stripe is available! Michael used the Ellie and Mac Be Greater for the jersey top. The leggings are the Ellie and Mac Urban legs in Pewter Athletic fabric.
Jess takes the most amazing photos with deep colors! And her models are such models! These photos look like they belong in a magazine! So many of our sewists are such talented photographers as well as sewists! This jersey stripe is available now! Jess made a Cloud 9 Dolman by Striped Swallow (free pattern alert!).
Sarah also went the dolman route with the wide gray stripe jersey ! It's such a fun casual fabric!
Painted Desert Sweater Knit
This painted desert sweater knit was at one time part of the sweater mystery bundles. But it's so popular it's now available in yardage! Sonia made the 5oo4 Jenny Cross Over. Another beautifully detailed and color perfect photo! The colors in this fabric are what make it so special and you can really see them all here!
I grabbed the painted desert from my sweater box and finally had a reason to sew something! I made myself an Annelaine Tea cardigan! I'm super ready for fall! This dress is the navy heavyweight rayon spandex by the way!
