Named after Edgworth Bess aka Elizabeth Lyons, Jack Shepard's lover, this dress is our take on a classic shirt dress and printed with our iconic Boundary Print.
The Jago Boundary Print is adapted and customised from John Rocque’s 1746 plan of London showing the streets and landmarks that Jack Sheppard knew. From Newgate Gaol, the location of Jack’s daring escapes, to Tyburn, now Marble Arch, are picked out for note with a Georgian illustration of the infamous triangular gallows of the ‘Tyburn Tree’ where Jack met his eventual end, at what became the largest publicly attended hanging ever. This began Jack’s passage into London folk lore legend.
It features little puffed sleeves, linen shirt buttons and a high pointed collar. It finishes just below the knee, is buttoned up all the way up the front and comes with a long belt made with herringbone tape.
Offered here in 100% cotton.
All prints will differ slightly as they are cut from a larger Jago Map Print pattern.
Length: approx 105cm.
