The Sweet Disorderly Dress

The Sweet Disorderly Dress


This beautiful flowing gown is a piece of art just like the print it comes in.

On crisscross back and the full length skirt, you see text printed all over. This is a poem by Robert Herrick titled, 'Delight in Disorder' (See the whole poem text below). On the V neck front, the careless hand portrait of a lady keeps in tune with the 'neglectful cuff' and the 'erring lace' that Herrick delights in. This piece is a true blend of fashion and art and is bound to turn heads.

Delight in Disorder

By Robert Herrick

A sweet disorder in the dress

Kindles in clothes a wantonness;

A lawn about the shoulders thrown

Into a fine distraction;

An erring lace, which here and there

Enthrals the crimson stomacher;

A cuff neglectful, and thereby

Ribands to flow confusedly;

A winning wave, deserving note,

In the tempestuous petticoat;

A careless shoe-string, in whose tie

I see a wild civility:

Do more bewitch me, than when art

Is too precise in every part.

Composition: 50% Silk, 50% Polyester
