 Dearest gentle reader,

The social season is upon us, and this author finds herself compelled to share the most exciting of news!

The Instagram is abuzz with the latest gossip, and so it is my honour to impart it to you. This Author has been reliably informed that The Ball of the season is almost upon us, and it promises to be the most splendid social gathering of the year. 

The immersive soiree will see you sew and cut with the esteemed members of the Ton Ladies Fauve and Asmaa as you partake in a day of music, mingling and perhaps other less refined activities……..a seam ripper perhaps?

Have no fear gentle reader, yours truly shall attend and every transgression will be diligently recorded. Because whilst you may not spot me in the crowd, I shall most definitely keep an eye on you! 

 Yours truly,

Lady Whistledown

The pattern we have chosen for this day of fun is the Daphne Maxi Dress. Inspired by Bridgerton, the dress has a high empire waistline, is fitted over the bust, has an elasticated panel at the back for that perfect fit, features short puff sleeves, a long flowy skirt, and most importantly it has inseam pockets!

And for the first time we are offering a selection of handpicked kits to go along with this workshop! The kit contains all the essentials required to make the perfect Daphne so all you need to decide is on whether you go for plain, ditzy or large!

All Kits are £40 (plus P&P), so all you need to do is visit the workshop tab from the menu above, choose your favourite available kit and add it to your basket!
