That shirt is so cute! I missed that review. I bought that same fabric. My LOL is just sitting there staring at me screaming ,"Make me into something!" But I haven't done anything with it yet.

I've never seen a Liberty of London fabric or felt it. Is it something like a cotton/silk sheer?

This was the first piece I have ever had. It's not exactly sheer, but somewhat translucent, so you can see outlines if there is light behind you. It's incredibly smooth like no other cotton I've ever purchased. Once you get your hands on it you begin to understand why it's so expensive...

Here's an example of the liberty fabric made from Simplicity 2246 - the traveler dress.

I have a couple of pieces and they are not sheer. They are a beautiful harmony of fluid and substantial.

thanks for the replies ladies. I splurged and bought some also but i am hesitant to cut into it as it is so beautiful. Silly i know but it is not often that i splurge and i would hate to end up with a wadder.
