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.

j'aurais du commandé une taille en dessous , mais cela reste une jolie robe , couleur vert olive très clair et de bonne qualité pour le printemps , le velours mille raies étant assez fin.

I have bought several dresses from this site because they are so unusual and well made. They are not cheap but you can pick up some real bargains in the sales. With this particular dress, a green corduroy I was a little disappointed. It's well made but the material is very thin which for me was surprising as previous experience with this fabric is that it is quite thick and plush and warm. This one is not. However, with boots and a warm jacket it is my new winter dress and it is nice apart from the thiness of the material.
