I love the soft turquoise color of this 1970’s vintage Gunne Sax style prairie dress. The brand label is missing, but the size and fabric content label are both attached.  Lace sleeves with zip up gauntlet wrist design, classic ribbon, lace and crochet lace up bodice. Empire style waist with tie backs. Fully lined except the lace sleeves. Fabric is 65/35 polyester cotton blend, with acetate lining. So magical!

*PLEASE NOTE: these measurements are exact. Chest measurements are taken flat and doubled. Please choose a garment that will fit you according to your preference- if you want a slim fit, choose a garment that is up to an inch smaller than your actual measurement (or if the fabric has stretch.) If the garment is a stiffer fabric or you prefer a looser fit, go 2-3 inches larger than your actual chest measurement, especially for outer wear.
