A Perfect Dress for your Vintage Bohemian Hippie Theme Wedding or Renaissance Faire wear!
SIZING and CONTENT:
Her exterior Fabric is a Light Creamed French Vanilla color (a slight bit more towards the cream side than the actual yellow of the ice cream itself... it definitely has that tint, just not as strong as the ice cream) and is composed of 65% Poly 35% Cotton, Under-Slip is 100% Acetate, 100% Rayon Ribbon and 100% Nylon Lace!
If you're a fan and collector of Gunne Sax gowns like I am, you've probably noticed their sizing can be a bit wacky sometimes! lol :D
You should always go by measurements given and not the tagged size on them and compare to a dress you have that fits you well, because they always seem to vary from gown to gown... plus sizing has changed a lot over the last few decades!
So, that said, here are some measurements for your perfect fit on this gown! :)
By "Jessica", San Francisco, Tagged a Vintage Size 5, Underarm to Underarm is 30 inches around, Bust 30 inches around when tied at her tightest (and of course may be loosened a bit by the drawstring/lace up cinch bodice), Empire Waist 24 inches, Length from the top of her shoulder strap to hemline 56 inches!
*~*~Please be sure to compare these measurements to a piece that you already own to insure a proper fit, as there are no returns... Thank you!~*~*
Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have, as all sales are final, THANK YOU! :)
There are 4 seed pearls missing at one side of the neckline, easy to either take four from the back of the neckline and move them there or any of your craft or fabric stores will carry them as well (they are beads, so they just sew right on! easy! I still discounted her by taking $100.00 off for you!), some very, very light sort of pilling at the front bodice, easily removed... other than that... SUPERB with Zero Flaws!
(***Please see the *perfect* condition Gunne we have listed as well, that's *very* similar to this one!) :)
*~You *will* wish to Zip her through the cleaners for a freshening (or she is hand washable as well!), as she may be a bit musty and a touch dingy from storage and does not appear to have been cleaned after her last wearing (very, very light underarm outline), then she's ready for your Vintage Wedding, Party or Prom Night!~* :) :) :)

The term has become associated with various artistic or academic communities and is used as a generalized adjective describing such people, environs, or situations: bohemian (boho—informal) is defined in The American College Dictionary as "a person with artistic or intellectual tendencies, who lives and acts with no regard for conventional rules of behavior."
It has become legend, a historic symbol... the love generation.
People from all walks of life, young and old alike, try to recapture the "Woodstock Spirit"
All of this started a huge Bohemian lifestyle and clothing movement, especially in San Francisco and other select California cities, thus designer names like Gunne Sax, Lorrie Deb, Candi Jones and a few other gorgeous lines were born! These vintage dresses and gowns are just as popular, sought after and highly collectible today as they were in the 60s and 70s! Perhaps even more so, as "Rainbow Gatherings" are still put on all around the world today!
