I stopped into our local JoAnns store today and imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon a big display of Liberty of London Tana Lawn fabric! JoAnn is now an authorized retailer for Liberty fabrics!!! Available online and in select stores only. While the fabric is pricey at $34.99 a yard, the prints are amazing and the quality of the fabric is divine … so lightweight and easy to sew … just perfect for Barbie dresses! I had to pick up 1/4 yard each of some beautiful prints to play with.
When I was last in London — pre-pandemic — I visited the Liberty store and first fell in love with their Tana Lawn.
Liberty’s exquisite designs are exclusively hand-drawn by artists right at their in-house studio. The printing takes place at their mill in northern Italy, which uses both innovative digital technology and age-old techniques to give results that are impeccable. The Liberty London fabrics have been at the cutting-edge of design and decorative arts since 1875 and now forms an international wholesale business, working with retailers, brands and designers across womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and homewares.
