Equestrian print wool dress with cap sleeves, front tie fastening and calf length A-line skirt. The bodice is constructed from a single panel of fabric, joined by a single seam down centre front. The innovative tie front décolleté forms the opening and closure of the dress. The skirt section attaches at the waistline and descends in an A-line shape to mid-calf.
