It’s that time of the year again! I can’t believe it’s five weeks until Christmas! And with that come the requisite Christmas parties that we’ll be attending. Whether it’s work, family or with friends, there’s always an occasion to dress up for!
I’ve compiled a shortlist of my favourite patterns (and ideas for fabrics and styling to go with them) for you here. I think I’ll have just about enough time to sew one of them!
2. Be a classy lady with this faux wrap dress from Burda. It’s a style that’ll be very flattering even with any extra winter weight! I’m desperate for a velvet version of view B myself! I’m thinking of gorgeous embroidery and beaded appliqués along a shoulder for that extra sparkle!
3. Got a black tie event to go to? Try the Elizabeth gown from Named. Go for a dark green satin as a sophisticated alternative to black. I’m totally channeling Keira Knightley in Atonement. (Man, I love that dress!)
