Dress: Violet dress by Seamstress of Bloomsbury
Bag: Vera Pelle via car boot sale
Necklace: Newbridge Silverware
There are so many good things about this dress. The fabric, a rayon crepe de chine, feels like vintage and has a lovely weight to it that swings when you walk and hugs your curves. There's a little bow detail at the back, and I love the square buttons and the generous fit at the waist which means you can look good and still eat lunch, dig for victory, dance or cycle in this dress. I am normally a size 12 and the dress is true to size, fitting beautifully. I'm a firm believer that it's the way a dress makes you feel, not just how you look in it, that makes you want to wear something again and again - and I can see this dress being a wardrobe staple of mine over the coming years because it feels so fabulous to wear. I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the dress with a discount, but the quality you get for the full retail price of £79 really is excellent. I hope that they're able to expand the size range in the near future so that more people can experience their clothes.
The Seamstress of Bloomsbury have recently added a few new lines to their collection, and there are some really gorgeous pieces. These two are my favourites, the 'Florrie' dress and the 'Lucy' dress.
