“Dottir is an old favourite of mine,” explains Saffia. “It’s pretty and practical – I love the texture, with the rich velvet with same coloured dots. And the skirt moves so beautifully too!”
The wrap-around bodice features Juliet-inspired sleeves, complete with sculptie puffs at the shoulder and upper arm before snugly wrapping the arm down to the wrist. An empire-waist full-length flexi skirt made this dress a perfect elegant match for the elegant garden.
And, to complete the effect, Saffia added a hat!
“Just for the outdoor scenes,” Saffia says. “I could have worn it to take tea too – Victorian ladies kept their hats on when paying calls, after all! But it was rather too magnificent – and kept disappearing into the chair!”
The hat was made by Kate McLaglen of Hat Heaven – and was a magnificent structure!
