The High Tea Dress - Ivy
High Tea as a concept and as a ritual is one of my all time favourite past times. Often loosely thrown together in Mum's backyard we gather to enjoy a joint unconditional love of cakes and tea. This dreamy piece is plucked from my fantasy of attending High Tea with Mum outside the ivy walls of her backyard in Daylesford.... perhaps in the gardens of Versailles with Marie Antoinette herself. Until then I will saunter around the house in this soft, feminine and frilly dream of a dress; perfect for disguising a tummy full of sugar and close my eyes. I can almost taste the rose eclairs and mille-feuille from here.
Featuring an open square neckline, gathered bib frill detailing, shirred elasticated waist, shirred elasticated sleeves, long flowing handkerchief hem, sea shell button opening at rear, raw edge finish and matching ruffle necktie (or waist belt).
Ivy is the most beautiful smokey forest green colour inspired by the colour of the Ivy climbing Mum's garden walls. It pairs beautifully with brown or black boots for an ethereal yet effortless look for day or night.
