We have made these dresses from around 75cm of needlecord to fit 1 to 2 year olds. Some we have made reversible so you would obviously need 75cm of each fabric for these.
To summarise Liberty needlecord
soft, drapey, lightweight, fine needlecord fabric
172gm/sm - light to medium weight needlecord
machine wash at 30 deg C, line dry, don't tumble
the fineness of the needlecords makes it wearable virtually all year round. Perfect for dresses, skirts, blouses, shirts and lends itself to little girl's pinafore dresses. Wear in autumn, winter, spring - even summer use when it's a bit cooler.
Liberty Lantana is a soft, light-medium weight dressmaking fabric combining lightness and warmth. Ideal for layering, this fabric drapes beautifully and is even fine enough to smock (not that anyone does smocking that much any more (shame!) but to give you an idea of it's vesatility. It reminds me a little bit of the iconic 'Viyella' brand in weight and feel.
We have lots of lovely prints to tempt you ...
'Adriatic' in either - Colourway A -teal tones with a hint of pinky/mauve for warmth,
or Colourway B - pink & mauve tones on a black background.
'Kindle' in Blue, Burgundy or Pink ...
