Cotton canvas, embroidery

Pop-Art floral pattern in color ‘tangerine’ demands a dress style that allows the print to be showcased.

A deep v-neck line with a high waist leads into a tea length column skirt.

A swoop of ‘silk-like’ lining reaches up from the hem and sinches at the hip with a faux tie.
