|Brora Velvet Skirt Suit|
Lined in Liberty cotton.
Now that we've entered the 1920's the corsetry has disappeared, the waistlines have dropped and the whole effect is one of modern swing.
Of course the fabrics are still exquisite: velvets, silks in both chiffon and charmeuse and of course British tweeds.
What should we pack up to fit in at Downton? Well it's Brora to the rescue!
|Phew, Lady Mary approves.|
