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.

Fits well, looks good and was competitive value. Arrived a bit crunched up and in need of an iron.

Just as described in brochure. Ideal item for between seasons, can be layered when necessary. Fabric thinner than expected. Colour perfect.

I suspect this is the one I returned for a smaller size as this dress is very generous in size.

I am enjoying wearing this loose fitting but very comfortable dress. Had to get smaller size on returns.
