A rare beauty. I'm almost certain this is a genuine Gunne Sax dress, given its iconic design & details, classic fabric & impeccable construction. As well, there are stray stitches were left on the inside right of the dress, where the tag would have been and appears to have been removed. However, since only those stitches remain of the tag, it is priced as a Gunne Sax 'style'. Lucky for the future owner of this dreamy prairie dress!
Long sleeves are tiered with a lace panel and finished with lace edges around the cuff. Classic square peasant neckline featuring a lace panel at the bust and double bias detailing the waist. Attached sash tie cinches in the back. White ivory base with a darling print of tiny blue and purple floral bouquets. There is just enough volume in the skirt to give you that skipping-through-a-field-of-daisies kind of vibe. Finished with a lace & bias trim. Zip halfway up the back, step in style.
The ultimate dress for a wedding OR every day wear to the farmers market. That's what is so iconic about these dresses! You feel like a goddess every time you put it on.
