After the postman delivers their invitation to a wedding, Clara and Ollie begin careful preparations. Clara imagines what the bride might wear, and might have worn in the past, but disaster strikes the night before the big event! Can Ollie and his inventions - and a visit to the haberdashery - save the day? Playful and whimsical while packed with beautiful details from the V&A, this wonderful story is sure to enthrall and enchant.
