Christmas with Silly Old Sea Dog

Have you heard of Silly Old Sea Dog yet?  They’re kind of great – I featured them in my Party Wear look book last week  after managing to snap up their beautiful monochrome Santa print dress in an instagram sale earlier this year.

Silly Old Sea Dog make playful 50’s inspired dresses in the quirkiest of materials.   All dress are designed in Cornwall and manufactured in Scotland, plus they come in quite a vast size range of 6 – 24.

This monochrome santa dress is a classic high neck, sleeveless dress with a cinched waist and full skirt.   Its made from a soft cotton that has enough weight to it to maintain the pleated skirt shape.

I’m wearing a size 18 and it is really quite roomy on my, I’ve cinched it in with a belt here but I really would advice sizing down from your usual with this brand.   A 16 would have fitted me perfectly.

I picked this dress up for just £25 in a sample sale but the SOSD dresses are normally priced around the £95 mark.  I understand these are not the cheapest of dresses, especially as the time of wear is limited when the material is splashed in Santas, but they are incredibly well made and you’re supporting an independent British designer – which is really important with the market as it is right now!

The dress is quite full – I mean, look at the swing and sway in it!
