There is simply nothing quite like Liberty Tana Lawn: the light, crisp, incredibly fine and tight weave of the cotton, the hand and drape, the colour and clarity of the prints.
Ideal for women's and men's shirts, beautiful dresses and skirts, quilting or whatever takes your imagination.

From Liberty: "Isa Liberty fabric is a design selected by Kiera Vaclavik, a senior lecturer in the department of Comparative Literature at Queen Mary, University of London. She has been researching and and teaching Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' for well over 10 years and is currently working on a project that explores Alice in relation to fashion and dress. Vaclavik chose this fabric because its crescent shapes evoke a number of wonderland elements: primarily the Alice Band, but also the Cheshire Cat's toothy grin. There is, finally something very Alice-y about the dots in the fabric as they suggest the shifting of shapes and patterns beneath the surface."

' "Please, would you tell me'', said Alice , a little timidly, ''why your cat grins like that?''
''It's a Cheshire Cat'', said the Duchess ''and that's why".' – Lewis Carroll
