I do so love mixing Liberty prints!
I have made quite a few mixed print shirts just for my own pleasure and amusement and just before Christmas, a brand new customer in Los Angeles bought one of those from my etsy.com shop
He enjoyed wearing it so much, and got so many compliments, that he got in touch to order another – my first mixed-print commission. He wanted to start with something pastel green, so I suggested the classic floral Liberty print ‘Capel’. After a bit of searching – no, a lot of searching – finding the right mix is a bit of a challenge – I came up with a colourway of the paisley Bourton that I thought looked divine next to it. It has a touch of sage green to tone with the floral, but enough blues and raspberry pinks to provide a real contrast. I’ve added a contrast placket to the cuff, which I have never done before.
I’m glad I set these two up to meet! I think they might have been made for each other…
