Yes of course I did. Visited Liberty of London, that is.
Doesn’t everyone do that when they are in London on a 25th wedding anniversary weekend?
We went to the V&A museum too.
They have a great fashion exhibition. Lots and lots of other art and design too.
The coffee cups in the outdoor cafe:
Even the Museum shop has a sewing themed section: sewing patterns available to purchase (By Hand London patterns would have been even better…)
I bought some buttons in honour of William Morris
We did other non- sewing related things too…
Like visiting Buckingham Palace,
Parks close by (the spring flowers were so beautiful),
Thoroughly enjoyed Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre,
Kings Cross (just missed the Hogwarts Express), and
The tower of London
Doesn’t he have a fabulous coat? Oops, back to sewing related stuff very quickly, aren’t I!.
And here’s the me-made content:
You’ve probably seen the skirt before on the blog, but the top is new. It’s my standard bateau neck t-shirt with a black and white stripe viscose knit (from Tessuti’s) spliced into a black ponte. The stripe was a gift from Melissa. Thanks Melissa!
I wore it with a leopard print scarf and grey tweed jacket. All that crazy print pattern (mis)matching seemed right for London, and especially the V&A.
We loved our London weekend!
