Sambourne - Liberty Silk Satin is an exquisite silk satin from Liberty, designed for their 'Aesthetic Renaissance' collection. Created to celebrate their founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty and his creative influences as a traveller, tastemaker and English gentleman, sharing stories and anecdotes from the archive and the Liberty legend he created.
Sambourne is a delightful ornamental monochrome floral print with elegant roses, lilies and pomegranates hiding amongst the decorative scrolling foliage. The Sambourne design was originally hand-drawn for Liberty in 1971. The title is taken from Linley Sambourne, owner of Stafford Terrace.
As you would expect from a Liberty fabric, this silk satin is expertly printed with an intricate design and has a classic and timeless style. Peonies, pomegranates, tulips, iris and lilies all play an important role in this classic silk satin.
"Liberty silk satin is lustrous and opalescent, characterised by a high-shine surface singing with colour depth and light reflection"
With an incredibly, slinky and luxurious handle and excellent stability, this light (blouse weight), but by no means flimsy, 100% Silk Satin is perfect for a host of sophisticated projects. Add some delicate lace for true vintage style. Classic full-sleeved blouses with neat collars or bow tie necks will look superb.
Sambourne will make excellent simple drapey tops, blouses and bias-cut dresses (lining recommended). Try a simple rectangle, drop shoulder cowl-necked top or easy make dolman sleeve top. Perfect for stand-alone occasion wear: dresses, evening gowns, brides & bridesmaid dresses (team with classic ivory silk satin). Go ahead and indulge yourself, creating robes, peignoirs, nightdresses, slips, camisoles, French knickers, playsuits etc.
