Apricot’s green floral bud v neck mini dress features the same flattering 1930s-inspired tea dress silhouette as the original, with smock detailing on the shoulders and under the bust. It’s available in sizes 8 to 16. The vibrant green is a lovely shade which suits a multitude of complexions, and it’s a very versatile piece which is perfect for summer


The Duchess of Cambridge loves her Susannah version – and it made a few appearances on the 2014 royal tour she embarked on with Prince William. She wore it under her Erdem coat on a visit to the Waikato region of New Zealand then again in Canberra, Australia.
