This picture was taken in the early 1990's when I was still in college (the first time). How I was able to afford this fabric, I really don't remember. I think it took three yards, so it must have been on sale. But I do remember that I bought it at G Street Fabrics in Rockville, Maryland. I hope one day to find that I still have a scrap of this left somewhere. This fabric was so gorgeous. It was a floral with white flowers outlined in black on a true red ground. I have searched the Liberty of London site and I thought it was no longer manufactured. **If anyone knows of a great resource to track down old Liberty prints, please let me know! I would love to know the name of this one and when it was designed.
I did find one similar, called Capel at Shaukat, the British seller of Liberty fabrics (they also carry Liberty oilcloth!) I believe my print was more densely populated with flowers, but then, this could just be a bad shot of the fabric.
Update: I found another picture of Capel and I think it actually is the same one!

Unfortunately, my waistline eventually expanded and I could no longer wear this dress. I wish I had had the foresight to keep it as the skirt was full enough and the sash long and wide enough to make a blouse. However, this was before I embraced the concept of refashioning. For me, I made an item, usually only once and then let it go. I was so prolific with my sewing then that the items were not as precious as their memories are now.
