What a print!!! This wonderful piece, which I believe started life as a housecoat housedress would still make a great wrap dress for the 1940s lover. Made from a good weight fabric which drapes beautifully, it is covered in this eye-catching striped cactus print in bold colours. The cute domed buttons are adorable on the asymmetric front, and the pointed sleeve detail are just a lovely little touch. 

• Cream background with striped cactus design in red, purple, green, blue and black
• Double breasted style with domed cream buttons
• Fastens with buttons and poppers to the inside

• Wrap front, asymmetric closure
• Fold over collar
• Long sleeve with slight point to the cuff and darts to the elbows and slight puff to the shoulder
• One pocket to the front
• Gathered pleated skirt
• Made from a mid weight fabric that could be a cotton/rayon blend as it is springy and does not crease easily. 
• Unlined 
• Handmade - I believe originally this would have been a house coat but works as equally as a dress
• The bottom 3in of the hem are very slightly darker, which I have tried to show in the last image but it is incredibly light colour change. There is also a slightly darker mark to one arm, and a small black mark near the hem at the back. Shown in photos.
