Well, I know it seems a bit early but seeing as our local supermarket has had mince pies on sale for several weeks now and I received my first order for a Christmas party frock this week, i’d say it’s definitely time to start thinking about what you’ll be wearing this festive season. Here’s what I’m planning to make myself from my original vintage paper pattern archive; an original Weldon’s dress pattern from the 1950’s. It’s a size 18 so i’ll have to grade it down a couple of sizes but I just LOVE the full skirt and long sleeve option. What do you think?

If you would like to discuss having a made-to-measure party dress made, please visit my website or feel free to email me.
