Snapdragon flowers are printed on the fabric of this elegant dress and jacket.

The skirt consists of widths of fabric that are joined together with four black net strips. The flounce adds extra fullness to the bottom of the skirt.

The jacket, which is cut on the bias from one piece of fabric, has dolman sleeves and self-ties, which wrap around the waist and tie in the back.
