The Sea of Frills

A Sea of Frills she is indeed, this peach frilly 1980s cotton midi dream dress is absolutely something else and a real gem indeed. I think she speaks for herself doesn't she. She has an elasticated bardot neckline which can be worn on or off the shoulder with a HUGE frill, huge frill puff sleeves, a self belt and a super full swooshy skirt. Her beautiful cotton fabric is fantastic quality and has a stunning delicate floral print. This beauty is just epic, she could be styled in so many ways and will be part of your wardrobe for a lifetime. Dresses like Sea of Frills rarely come up.

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best.

Bust - up to 35" 

Waist - 28"

Length -  46"


For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

Sea of Frills has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition.

This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.

Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements.  Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
