Rendered in a wonderful repeat floral design in shades of grey and black, set against a white background, this original 1950's Horrockses dress and jacket set, is the perfect ensemble for your seasonal wardrobe. 

The V shaped neckline of the dress is accented by a central matching fabric bow along the front of the décolletage, from which gathered pleats radiate along either side of the bust-line. The simple shoulder line, sets off the short caped sleeves. The fitted bodice, which is accented by pleating along the bust, draws the eye to the cinched in waistline. The cut of the skirt, showcases tailored darts that run from beneath the waistband, completing this dress in an iconic shift silhouette.

The matching jacket sits perfectly above the dress, boasting a V shaped neckline and a simple shoulder line. The 3/4 length sleeves, frame the fitted cut, which is set off by tailored darts along the bust-line and cinched in waistline, which is accented by matching fabric ties that draw the waistline in along the back of the jacket. Completed with central button fastenings and a delicate flared cut along the hemline, this iconic ensemble is sure to be a favourite in your summer wardrobe.
