Meet Jenny Lee and Sister Monica Joan from CALL THE MIDWIFE - and we shall have cake. All of the cake.
Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess "This outfit was made for Maggie Smith as Violet. The fabric was created by reproducing an Edwardian print onto silk. The design was based on a jacket from the era. We used original lace for the edging and cuff detail. The blouse had a lace bow and high neck added. The hat has vintage cotton baubles covered with a fine net dyed to match the suit."-- costume designer Susannah Buxton
