Meet Jack & Charlie

Have you ever sewn with Liberty Rossmore Needlecord?  It is unlike any other needlecord I have used before, so fine, soft and silky, its feels beautiful and is  so lovely to sew with.  I have made a skirt with Isla Rose Liberty Kingly cord before which is lovely but firmer and not so silky.

Liberty describe Jack & Charlie as “a conversational pear print”!

Jack & Charlie


Probably the most expensive fabric I have ever bought at£21.95 per metre, but with 20% off as a special offer at SewBox  not so bad and as the fabric is 150cm wide and only needing 80cm for  my favorite skirt pattern, I think its well worth it.

So once again out came my most used pattern Butterick 5466 but for the first time ever View B, which is the same but with a narrow waistband instead of facings and no waistband.  A simple skirt with a invisible zip and navy lining.



Happy sewing!

  1. I’ve sometimes wondered what the Liberty needlecord feels like as I’ve seen it on the Sewbox website but not in ‘real life’. Your skirt looks great in that design which is aptly named as it will probably be a ‘conversation starter’.

  2. Love this, I’m always drawn to bright and unusual prints. I really like liberty prints but get scared at the cost but great you have found a skirt that only needs one metre!
