Description
Cotton corduroy dress with pretty, floral embroidery inspired by a 19th-century smock, with pin-tucked details and buttoned to the waist. The term ‘corduroy’ was first coined in the 18th century and is widely believed to have been derived from the French translation ‘corde du roi’, ‘the cord of the king’. Corduroy evolved from the ancient cotton weave known as ‘fustian’. This manufactured textile existed for thousands of years before it came to acquire the name of corduroy, and expensive fustian (corduroy) textiles were worn by King Henry VIII in the 16th century.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
