Brooks Dress | Natural History Museum

Cut in a relaxed, oversized fit from 100% organic cotton, the Brooks jersey dress offers a feminine silhouette and incredible comfort. In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, we’ve hand-selected illustrations from the pioneering work of 17th century naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian to create a unique all-over print.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Love it!

Absolutely love this dress. The fabric is so soft and beautifully printed. Perfectly light for summer, but will also be able to layer it up for autumn and winter. Purchased a 10 and it’s a loose fit for me. Probably would have been fine with an 8 but then wouldn’t have that loose fit look. Finisterre’s eco-credentials are amazing too - all fully recyclable/compostable packing. Perfect all round!

Massive but lovely

Lovely, soft cotton dress with beautiful print. Only drawback is that "relaxed, oversized fit" actually means huge! I'm normally a 14-16 and I had to go down to a 12 to get a relaxed, oversized fit, rather than comically baggy. Given it 5 stars as I have no doubts about the quality and love it now I've found the right size, but be warned!

Brilliant!

It is such comfortable material and good quality. I was expecting it to be smaller, but it is the perfect size for warm weather! Great colourful pattern, really rich colours as shown on the website. Good to be supporting sustainable products (with sustainable packaging!!) and the Natural History Museum

Loved everything about it except the sizing

Loved this product but im normally a size 10 and it was massive on me. Tried the size 8 and still too big. Was hoping you did a 6 but you didnt.
