Wiltshire Purple and the dress of my dreams

My goodness it has been a while! I’ve been so busy with work, I haven’t even had the time to blog, which has been a real rarity over the years, but I am so thankful for the work! A lot has happened over the past few months- you’ll see in my pictures that I’ve undergone a bit of an expansion because I’m carrying our fourth child who we will get to meet at the end of April.Deer and Doe Magnolia Dress in DuckaDilly Liberty exclusive Wiltshire

But onto business! Today I’m back with a bang because I get to show you a rather magnificent dress I got to make with some stunning Liberty that is brand new and exclusive to DuckaDilly Fabrics. They asked me if I would like some to play with and when they ask that, its always an instant yes from me! I had two different projects in mind, but the Magnolia won pretty easily. Its a pattern that makes any fabric shine, and with its full skirt and long sleeves, I knew it would be the perfect showcase for the Liberty fabric. Deer and Doe Magnolia Dress in DuckaDilly Liberty exclusive WiltshireThis exclusive Liberty fabric is a recoloring of one of Liberty’s most beloved and iconic prints, Wiltshire. It features a berry motif, and this one has a deep, dark purple background with fuschia and aqua berries. Its absolutely gorgeous!

I especially love the blue! Deer and Doe Magnolia Dress in DuckaDilly Liberty exclusive Wiltshire

I have about decided that this dress pattern is the most perfect silhouette for showing off a favorite print, and I’m dreaming of all the fabrics that I would like to use to make more of these Magnolia dresses. I think any amount of this rich, deep purple would be lovely in a project, but to have a whole dress really does make for a wow factor, and I’m very grateful the folks at DuckaDilly let me play with this much of their fabric. The Magnolia Dress is designed by Deer & Doe, and while it does use a good bit of fabric, the pattern is easy to follow and can be made in a day. It has a hidden zipper in the side seam, so its a very clean design and easy to wear. Deer and Doe Magnolia Dress in DuckaDilly Liberty exclusive WiltshireAll the new Wiltshire’s are available in a Fat Quarter bundle if that’s how you like to purchase, or if you prefer they can each be purchased individually.
