The Party Season is just around the corner! Have you made your dream party dress yet?

If not, don't panic, there is still time to whip up a beautiful dress for all those Christmas Do's that crop up in December.  I've done a round up of all my favourite fabrics and party dress patterns we stock to offer up some inspiration!

The Holyoke Maxi Dress or the Rosalee would both make stunning party dresses in the right fabrics!  I'd opt for a beautiful crepe for 'maxi-glamour' and you can even get away with wearing leggings underneath for warmth!  The Sudley Dress offers an alternative silhouette, which I think could be dressed up or down very easily, and has a relaxed waist for enjoying all the delicious Christmas food!

For a classic party dress you will be reaching for again and again, you can't go wrong with the Ready to Party Dress!  Featuring two necklines and two skirt options, you can mix and match to create your dream dress.  I also love the Kew Dress, and think the variation with the sleeves is perfect for this time of year.  Another Popular option is Eve Wrap dress, which looks stunning in drapey crepe fabrics.  All three of these patterns offer a fabulous base to feature some stunning lace or sequin fabrics!  Make the whole thing in sequins or carefully include lace panelling for an elegant touch - what would you do?
