5 Ways To Dress Glamorously At Home

If you’re looking for glam-yet-comfy ways to get dolled up at home, you’re in the right place! It’s safe to say that pyjamas and loungewear have taken a more prominent role in many wardrobes over the past year, but with a new year here, we’re feeling like contrasting that with a spot of dressing up, literally.
Here are the dresses (and one playsuit) that are on heavy rotation in our wardrobes at the moment.

Nancy Dress

Add a touch of the Sixties to your day-to-day wardrobe with the Nancy Dress. Inspired by vintage swing dresses this pattern has the swish factor. The loose-fitting dress features plenty of interesting design details, allowing you to try out new techniques. Think unique panelling and dart placement.

Thea Dress

Make a statement from your sofa with the Thea Dress‘ bold silhouette. The cocoon shape of the body contrasts with the narrow sleeves for a head-turning, modern look. The best bit? As well as looking fabulous, Thea is made from just three pattern pieces meaning it’s a must-try make for beginners and experienced sewists alike.

Heather Dress

A classic knit dress, the Heather is perfect for keeping warm over the winter. Complete with pockets (making it an instant winner for us), different sleeve lengths and ample opportunities to add your own twist with colour blocking, it’s a smart wardrobe staple.

Georgie Dress

The epitome of elegance, the Georgie Dress is a dreamy wrap dress that doesn’t compromise on comfort. The knit dress will just as easily wow on a Zoom call as it will at future special occasions. With two variations designed – one for heavier knits and one for lighter jerseys – you can make the Georgie just the way you’d like it.

Poppy Playsuit
