TRUE VINTAGE VICTORIAN/PRAIRIE-STYLE GOWN FROM THE '60'S

It’s hard for me to classify this dress. It’s kind of a hybrid style with an unclear purpose. Part boho prairie, part Victorian lady, part Prom dress, part hostess gown. Got me!

The prairie-style and long Victorian/Edwardian-style dresses became really popular again in the late Sixties and early Seventies; plus the construction and materials give lots of clues to it’s original era.

Made of a heavy nylon-feeling fabric and has an embroidered makers’ tag. Never seen anything quite like it, but I was intrigued.

Could even be a Spring party dress! Good idea . . .
