Summer of Love…incredibly ethereal Gunne Sax vintage 70s era corset prairie dress in a billowy watercolor floral pattern reminiscent of a Monet painting…she is beyond beautiful.
This pattern has an illusion to it that I’ve tried to capture in some of the photos, where it has a more neutral tone to the bodice that is emphasized by the antique cream lace, then flows into a very full skirt that has cool blue tones (to my eye)…
But the very best part is her size…well, by vtg Gunne standards, that is…believe this was a size 13 but the size tag has long fallen off, having a 34″ bust & 28″ waist, so may be at least a bit more accommodating as far as size versus the super restrictive smaller Gunne sizes from that era.
In very good pre-loved vtg condition having a bit of thread stress where bodice meets skirt, which is common to Gunne’s of this type due to the fullness & weight of the skirt, also a bit of thread fray to hemline – if you need any extra photos, never hesitate to ask – we have plenty to share 🙂[m s m t s]
