Skimpy in the GIFT SHOP

Just added to the GIFT SHOP a SKIMPY knicker in Australian size 8 (US 4).  The knicker combines two Liberty print cotton fabrics; Baby Rainbow for the body and Tom for the waist binding.    

Fabric notes from Liberty...

"Baby Rainbow was based on a Liberty fabrics design from the 1970s and re-worked into hope, promise and peace-giving rainbows.  Rich in symbolism, rainbows have also been used in art as bridges to the heavens, paths to wisdom and celestial kaleidoscopes.

Based on an authentic Liberty archive design stretching back to 1935, Tom Liberty fabric was originally created by influential textile designers Silver Studio"

I love the idea of combining elements from different eras to create something unique and modern and I'm busy making up lots more knickers in all sorts of cute period mash-ups.

If you have the sewing skills to make your own The SKIMPY sewing pattern is also available.   Please remember folks, patterns sold may not be copied, distributed and/or commercially reproduced.
