St Michael really is one of the greats of vintage and this dress is certainly one of the good ones! The print is fantastic, intricate and fun with large animals frolicking about in front of geometric designs. The style of the print is very similar to African wax print fabric. The style of the caftan is easy to wear, the looseness will make this so perfect for warm weather, or to cover up on holiday, and the fluted sleeves are chic and dramatic. But do not feel that this is only relegated to your Summer wardrobe though, this would still work worn over a tee with some chunky boots in Spring and Autumn! 

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
