The Melanie Press collection

Sonnet dress in bias-cut print cotton twill

Regular price £345.00

As featured in the Best Summer Dresses, by Anna Murphy, Fashion Director of The Times. 

Printed on lightweight cotton twill for a structured silhouette - this dress has a feminine utility feel.

The collar has a scalloped edge.

The print-design started with a Victorian tile. We twisted the artwork, but maintained the translucency of an almost bone-like paint overlay of white on top of the dark navy.  There is a wonderful uneven layout in the design of the print, which makes it quite nostalgic.

The info:

  • Bias cut over the bust which means it fits everyone and gives it stretch.
  • Lower skirt area is in folded pleats: super flattering
  • Side pockets.
  • Zip front - gives it a modern feel
  • Ribbon belt in photo is optional  for £35.
  • Length is below the knee
  • Coming soon: Autumn version in velvet. Send us an email:
