Detailed Description

Lucy comes with lots of beautiful details.  Let's start at the collar.  It has 9 lines of stitching 3 white, 3 green, 3 white which wonderfully compliment the colours in the rest of the dress.  Leading from the neckline are 18 covered buttons, using the same fabric as the dress.  These are decorative rather than functional, instead there are hidden hook and eyes that fasten the dress up to the collar.  

At the waist is a gorgeous functional belt.  Like the buttons the fabric of the belt matches that of the dress.  The buckle is made from a clear green acrylic and really adds to the overall aesthetic.  

If you fancy mixing things up you could always team the dress with one of our own range Berkeley belts for an added pop of colour.  Finally that brings us to the skirt.  Godet pleats allow for a nice amount of twirl, without being too full on the hips.

The dress is made from rayon crepe de chine, which is is silky to the touch and a 100% natural fibre.

Hand wash or dry clean.
