Buyer's guide: Delicate doilies

Inspired by the crochet collar free gift from Mollie Makes 35, we’ve hunted down our favourite doilies 

Delicate and lacy, we love doilies and the retro feel they bring to a tea party. These picks show that doilies can add an ethereal beauty to home, hair and handbags, too.
