The festive season is on the horizon, and if you, like us, love to get down but are daunted by the number of never-before-seen party dresses required for all the jubilant shenanigans that will inevitably be taking place before 2014 has it’s final call, then panic not, By Hand London have got your back (and front). But wait, there's more...
For the first time ever we have decided to launch our newest gang member with a presale event for all you fabulous customers. If you preorder Kim through our website before Friday 7th November you will receive 15% off our usual pattern price of £14, and she will be sent to you as SOON as she's back from the printers around Friday 28th November!
The party dress to end all party dresses Kim is nearly here and she’s ready to fill your wardrobe with enough festive frocks for the lot of us.
Sexy and slinky, but also demure and girly, Kim will succumb to all aspects of your femininity! The fully lined, princess seamed sleeveless bodice which comes with a choice of a simple scooped neckline or a vintage sweetheart, also has two very different skirt options - Variation 1 boasts a wrap-style pencil skirt with a curved, petal-like overlap, while the gathered skirt with pintuck hem of Variation 2 nods nostalgically to the Misses dresses of the 50s.
A smorgasbord of woven fabrics will be suitable for your Kim: cotton lawn and quilting cottons, cotton voile, cotton poplin, seersucker, cotton silk, brocade, jacquard, taffeta, dupion silk, silk satin, silk crepe, silk habotai, silk noil, wool crepe, wool tweed, eyelet lace, viscose rayon among others. For the bodice lining we recommend 100% cotton lawn.
As always, we’ll be announcing the sewalong as soon as we can, but until then preorder your pattern here so you can maximise the merriment and dance the entire way into 2015!
