Grace Hopper Dress Obsidian Cotton Sateen with Queen's Gambit Hand Smocking


The Grace Hopper Dress: for women you can count on.

Inspired by the pioneering mathematician and computer scientist who helped develop the first commercial electronic computer, comes this long line, maxi dress designed for maximum impact and glamour. A hand smocked spectacular of oversize trellis stitch zig zags interspersed with glittering gold cable stitches and flowerettes stands out against her statuesque silhouette made from acres of luxurious obsidian cotton sateen; while generous hand-tie ribbons and a gathered skirt frill add soft flourishes to finish. With pockets and a gently elasticated bodice offering a fit that supports in all the right places she’s a dress you can count on for day and night escapades in knock out style this summer.
