Gunne Sax 70s Vintage Day Dress M Hippie Boho Floral Print

This dress is classic vintage Gunne Sax, with Prairie and Victorian influences - sweet, romantic, and very feminine! The bodice has a high neck with attached lace peter pan collar with velveteen accented angular yoke in front that is trimmed with lace and ribbon. Long sleeves are puffed at the shoulders, hinting at leg-of-mutton style. There is soft pleating for the bust where the dress insets into the yoke - the rest of the dress is straight-cut, allowing for the waist to be defined or not as the wearer chooses. It comes with a self fabric tie belt - I also showed it with a relaxed leather belt that is not included with purchase. Or it can be worn loose, which means it could work as second trimester maternity wear. There are inset handwarmer pockets in the sideseams.
