The Sonnet

Meet Sonnet, she is an UNBELIEVABLE AND RARE one of a kind 70s cotton romantic dream dress with the BEST novelty print ever. Honestly, do I really need to write words about this one? Prints like this one are the hens teeth of vintage, and do not come about often, in all of my time I have never seen a dress quite as good as she.. With an epic silhouette, stunning dramatic lace neckline, voluminous sleeves with lace cuffs, corset feature waist, lace flounce and the best fit ever, she is one of my best dresses ever sourced. Her print is like a renaissance painting, filled with angelic scenes, with a green colour way, and the base of her print has a tapestry looking texture. I will miss and mourn this one for an eternity and and more, I hope she finds the best home today.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12

The Sonnet has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear. Cool wash. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

 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.
