Planning your party outfit is one of the most fun parts of Christmas season - all the more so if you’re making it yourself! We’ve rounded up just a few of the ideas that we’ve had for our virtual Christmas party - new makes, up-cycles, and DIY embellishments galore. Which to choose!
When it comes to sourcing sparkle, Laura Stanford knows her stuff. As co-author of the fabulous new book The Secrets of Sewing Lingerie, she (and fellow author Katherine Sheers) is a professional when it comes to using luxurious and delicate fabrics. Where better to turn for advice on where to find something a bit special to glam up your party outfit!
So, we’ve told you what a fantastic haul we have up for grabs for the Best Party Outfit category. Today we’re going to round up the goodies for the winner of the Best Party Accessory category, and it’s another covetable selection of sewing loveliness!
So, we’ve invited you all to our virtual Christmas party, explained how to enter our competition, now we should really cut to the chase and tell you what fabulous goodies we have up for grabs. And let me tell you, these are some blimmin’ great prizes!
On Wednesday 10th December we’re having a virtual Christmas party and you’re all invited!
So last Friday we got up at 5.45am, packed the car up (in the dark!) and set off to Farnham Maltings for their now annual Thread Festival.
Our Buchanan gown provides a great opportunity to get your seam finishing perfected - the loose fitting style means the ‘guts’ are on show a fair bit! There are so many different methods, some more time consuming than others but finishing the inside of your garment beautifully will help take it from home-made to couture… Put the overlocker and the pinking shears away and try one of these methods instead.
We’re thrilled to be launching our third pattern and accompanying kits, The Buchanan!
In a few weeks we’ll be exhibiting at Thread and the lovely people at Farnham Maltings have given us some free tickets to give to you guys!
Are you keen to get going with one of our patterns but would like a bit of a helping hand? We’ve got just the solution!
