This Tea Dress by Liberty London is made in a patriotic London print fabric in honour of Her Majesty's platinum Jubilee and is also my Birthday Dress
Tea dresses are so flattering and fabulous for when you want to feel dressy but not uncomfortable
This Liberty London design is very typical of the styles worn in the 1940's with shoulder pads and simple lines
Shoulder pads were added to almost every garment in the 1940s, it was a nod to the military and seen as a sign of support to our Armed Forces
I have owned this pattern for ages and had forgotten about it, but with Her Majesty's platinum Jubilee fast approaching it seemed appropriate.
As did this fabulous fabric which I have owned for several years but never found the occasion to use it. It is absolutely perfect!
The pattern is suitable for confident beginners
