This is a gorgeous Victorian style Gunne Sax cream dress from the 1970's. Beautiful sturdy muslin cotton with lace knit overlay across the entire dress. The center bust laces up with a long drawstring. The puff shoulder detail tapers at the sleeve in leg of mutton style with a small slit at the cuff with button closure.
This dress has a high, swan neck collar leading to a v neck. The fabric is gathered at the back of the waist with pleats and there is a lace detail panel on the back. The bottom of the dress has a ruffle tier of the same fabric cinched with a strip of lace. This dress closes in back with a center back zipper.
We love these vintage Gunne Sax dresses as bohemian wedding dresses!
In excellent condition, with one mall hole in the lacing on the back of the right sleeve, not noticeable when worn. We estimate this dress to fit a US size 6.
