One of my favourite things about Autumn is woodland walks with my little family. We recently took a trip to a local country park, that is well known for it’s HUGE wooden chair and hidden fairy doors in trees. I find being in the woods, particularly in Autumn, such a magical experience and it’s something I really want to share with Frank. Despite the odd toddler style meltdown, he had a lot of fun being free range amongst the trees and kicking around in the leaves.
The weather has been unseasonably mild of late and has allowed me to continue wearing dresses and bare legs. Earlier in the year, I shared my love for the Seamstress of Bloomsbury Peggy wrap dress in the bow print. And now, I’m here to share wax lyrical about their latest bow adorned Peggy dress. Knowing how much I LOVE a bow (my name is not a coincidence), the Seamstress of Bloomsbury got in touch to offer me the opportunity to be the first person to own one of their new ‘Big Bow Print’ Peggy dresses! Well, obviously, I bit their hand off!
The dress is made with the 40s Rayon Crepe De Chine that has become synonymous with Seamstress of Bloomsbury garments. Whereas my previous peggy had bows printed directly on to the fabric, the Big Bow version has delicately appliqued houndstooth bows, decorated with strands of red wool.
As before, I stuck with my SoB size 10, to fit my 35, 28, 42 figure. I can’t stress enough how much I love the versatility of this dress, in that it would suit a large busted lady just as much as small busted women like myself. I don’t have to stress about whether it will fit my waist and hips and that is so darn refreshing for someone who struggles to buy clothes off the peg.
At the risk of being a total tease, this exact item doesn’t yet appear to be up on the website. However, if you’re feeling impatient and need something to fill the gap, you can find it in their 40’s swing skirt now.
Disclaimer – this dress was kindly gifted to me by Seamstress of Bloomsbury however all opinions are my own honest views. I do not accept any items that I wouldn’t genuinely purchase myself.
