Miss Haversham is looking rather spectacular in her Burns attire. Draping a couple of metres of tartan as a shash will add elegance and authenticity to any evening dress you are sporting for the occasion.
Miss Havershams outfit is inspired by Simplicity pattern number 8285.
We also love pattern 2172 and this video shows you how to make this magnificent coat. There is also a fabulous skirt that can be worn with it. Follow the link for more information on making these patterns. We stock the whole range of Simplicity patterns at our shops and you can select some stunning damasks and velvets from our soft furnishing cloths. We have an entire room dedicated to fancy dress fabrics, ranging from dreamy two tone organzas to bi stretch copper lurex so you can create a totally individual look.
