Well, the TV show and the related book arrived last year, but the vintage-style clothing by Dawn o’Porter is still an ongoing thing. That includes The Ophelia shift dress at Bob.

Unashamedly looking to the 1960s for inspiration, the slim-fitting dress is available in a more subdued black and white or a rather more bold aqua and yellow. The design is the same though, with the key detailing here being the buttoned front and the detachable bag on the front. Ideal if you just need to (or want to) go out with the absolute minimum of kit. According to the write up, it will fit an iPhone 5. Other phones? We are not sure.

Sizes are 6 through to 16, with all the sizes having a 5cm allowance should you wish to adjust the hem and a 2cm seam allowance if you want to take it out.

£190 is the price of both online. Note that Bob will also have a pop-up shop launching in London in September. Contact them for more details of where and when.
