Sweetheart - Sew La-Di-Da

Regular price £18.00 Sale

Sweetheart embodies the true meanings of elegance –  stylish, graceful, and ingeniously simple! This fabulous sleeved dress gives you a choice of 2 necklines: sweetheart or square, and is extremely easy to sew. Like Rose, she enhances your waist and celebrate your curves, with a simple flared skirt and a three-quarter length sleeve.

Sweetheart’s princess line panels are a godsend: they give the illusion of an hourglass figure, are easy to sew, and far more comfortable to wear than a girdle! The generous ¾ length sleeve can be worn as is, taken in slightly for a more fitted version, or shortened or lengthened according to your preference. Sweetheart rocks large novelty prints and polka dots for a smokin’ hot rockabilly vibe, or looks elegant and sophisticated in muted satins, florals, or brocades. The square neckline lends itself to more casual styles too; why not try a thicker material, such a wool, for a warmer winter dress with a difference?

Like Rose, Sweetheart even makes a beautiful wedding dress – try embellishing the neckline and making the sleeve in lace for a touch of retro glamour.
