Dakota dress in Blue Pheasant

£225.00

This beautiful pheasant hand-block print is taken from an 18th-century archive document.  It has a rich and beautiful history with pieces held by various museums and many speculations as to its origins.  We have redrawn the pattern with a few 'Cocteauesque' flourishes, keeping the original repeat intact and the results are wonderfully painterly and hopefully a fitting tribute to this brilliant old design

The Dakota dress is in a poplin cotton, with pockets, buttons on the top half of the dress and a full skirt with three tiers and full-length sleeves
