Publisher's Summary

After renowned London fashion designer Cressida Westcott loses both her home and her design house in the Blitz, she has nowhere to go but the family manor house she fled decades ago. She arrives with nothing but the clothes she stands in, at a loss as to how to rebuild her business from a quaint country village.

Her niece, Violet, is thrilled that her famous aunt is coming to stay—the village has been interminably dull with all the men off fighting. Meanwhile, the local vicar’s daughter, Grace Carlisle, is trying in vain to repair her mother’s gown, her only chance of a white wedding. When Cressida Westcott appears at the local Sewing Circle meeting, Grace asks for her help—but Cressida has much more to teach the ladies than just simple sewing skills.

Before long, Cressida’s spirit and ambition galvanises the village group into action, and they find themselves mending wedding dresses not only for local brides, but for brides across the country. And as the women dedicate themselves to helping others celebrate love, they might even manage to find it for themselves....

From the acclaimed author of The Chilbury Ladies' Choir and The Kitchen Front, The Wedding Dress Sewing Circle was inspired by true events in World War Two.

The wedding dress sewing circle

A lovely book. One that restores hope when all seems to failed. A very good insight into the WW2 life from the women’s aspect.

A stitch in 1940s time.

I’m a sucker for books set during WWII, so this was a good fit for my reading taste, but it proved to be considerably more absorbing than the usual rom-coms. There was a constant thread (!) of couture, dressmaking, and women’s crafts, with the added interest of village life and activities. Well narrated by Sophie Roberts.

Loved it.

A wonderful story about three very different women and their lives in WW2 Britain. Beautifully narrated. Romantic, exciting and enchanting.

You'll be involved

It didn't take long to begin cheering for these people, their lives are diverse, but their goals are aligned

I comfortably fitted into the genre and relaxed into the compelling story

This work had me wanting more, I grew to love the characters, and enjoyed the truth of the WW2 scenario they navigated

More than usual, I was hoping for positive outcomes, this author is masterful
