The Liberty Jersey feels more like silk jersey than typical jersey so it feels wonderful against the skin and I really loved the pattern on the fabric. The two shades of blue are shades I am very fond of. I don’t have much to say about the pattern, I’ve gushed about my love of the Renfrew here and …
