Who doesn’t love a Nativity play? Every year the story of Baby Jesus weaves its magic and the children playing their parts shine with joy. For me it heralds the start of Christmas, time to wrap presents and have a mince pie! We’ve added a little bit of glamour to our collection to offer pieces that will co-ordinate with existing garments and also stand out across a crowded stage or church. The Nativity Collection is generously sized to allow for a wide range of sizes to fit into the costumes – and to pop something warm underneath.

Star £18.50

The Star costume is a wide kaftan-like cape and is generously sized. The star design is taken from an embroidered cardigan my grandmother owned and printed in gold. Add sequins from the bag supplied to add sparkle and shine. Now all you need is tinsel.
