Goodness, it’s St David’s Day already, ushering in Miss Wednesday’s favourite month. Well, it would have to be, wouldn’t it? She was born on a Wednesday in March, after all. And Miss Jane makes the first of her handful of annual visits to Looe this month, so the top tier of the Petticoat Club all get together for what used to be known as The March Hare’s Staff Christmas Party. Back in the days when it was just Miss Wednesday and Miss Jane and Derek at Papa Nino’s only had to find two leftover crackers. Now, of course, they require six of them, together with crackers, party poppers and rather a lot of Prosecco.
March is also a favourite of Miss Wednesday for another reason. She starts to feel properly springy in March and, along with desperately wanting to be on the Cote d’Azur, begins to break out both her cherished older designs and any new frocks she’s designed over the winter months. This year sees some lovely new fabrics waiting to be made up into the designs that are still in her head (quite a few one-way prints requiring different skirts) and some cute new frocks for the Ready To Wear collection, which will be in Lovely Lane in Polperro for Easter. Some are already there, although not this one yet. Soon. Hopefully this week!
Anna is almost complete now and will retail at £75 in sizes S, M, L and XL. And then it’s on with the next design. Which Miss Wednesday has almost worked out in her head. Almost…
If you’re wanting a new spring or summer frock, especially a made to measure one, don’t leave it too long before having a chat with Miss Wednesday and placing your order. Things are busy at the workshop already and this year has the added entertainment of some musical commitments with The Changing Room so Miss W won’t be available at all at Easter, as the band’s off to Ireland to represent Cornwall at the Pan Celtic Festival in Derry. It’s all go!
