A celebration of all things quintessentially British - well I think it speaks for itself with a huge great map of GB on the front.

This statement dress can be dressed-up for twilight, just a little something to throw over when the darkness descends and the air becomes chilly. Or wear over your PJs while mooching about your country abode, wearing your tiara of course, while sipping Earl Grey in your china cups, or even possibly wearing for long hikes with the corgis. What Ho Chaps!

Uncomplicated and effortless to make – constructed from two rectangular pieces with a little bit of shaping on the shoulders and neckline. Sew-up seams to armholes, pick-up sts to create neckline and pick-up sts around armholes to create small sleeve caps and TA DA….

Cast-off loosely. Just fling on and wear. Well I do suggest you block first; wet thoroughly, lie out on a towel to dry naturally making sure to pull out to define shape. ENJOY.
