Corde du Roi Dress
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.

Well oversize for the LARGE dress Returned with request for Medium size and from then onwards everything went wrong with their service. As explained before I I am appalled at there service and would advice not to order with them.

Fits beautifully. I thought it was going to be a little thicker and was concerned about it as I sweat alot tbh!!! But when I received it I was surprised at how just the right amount of material it was. Not too thin and notvtoo thick...just lovely. I've worn it and washed it... shrinkage or loss of colour. So was very pleased with the outcome. Great design..Good quality and it makes me a happy bunny!!!
