The Meredith Dress is an effortlessly sexy wrap dress designed to be sewn in a soft and flattering jersey. It gathers at the shoulder yoke for a snug fit around the bust, and the tie cinches you in at the waist. Meredith looks classic in a solid color and, thanks to minimal stitching, also works with a large scale print. UK sizes 6-30.

Model two: The Heidi Dress

This no-frills wrap offers a touch of glamor without overdoing it. It would work well in a striking print, or delicate georgette would create an elegant look. You can opt for a maxi or midi length. UK sizes 8-20.

Model three: The Nomi Dress

The Nomi is perfect in a knit fabric, making it ideal for a chilly February evening on the town. Its twisted bodice and ruffled skirt give it a chic yet comfortable bohemian look. The knee length is perfect for dancing, but it can also be maxi. UK sizes 6-30.

Model four: The Betty Dress and Complementary Pack

This design is simple enough for confident beginners, and the add-on pack gives you the option to add different sleeves and have a choice of a v-neckline or a scoop neckline. It works in a variety of fabrics at different weights, and could even be done in a lightweight wool. UK sizes 6-30.

Model five: The Isla Dress

A romantic dinner is made for the Isla dress, with its optional yoke and ruffled shoulders. This works especially well in a lightweight woven fabric with lots of drape, and is best in a solid color, so maybe a red is in order. UK sizes 8-20.

Bonus model: The Sidbury Landslide

The Sidbury is a lovely luxurious undergarment or nightwear, and it has a stunning appliquéd lace front and pleated straps for that extra special touch. It is cut on the bias and has darts on the chest for a perfect fit, and can be made in different lengths according to your preferences. UK sizes 6-30.
