Now that we’ve passed the first day of glorious Summer and the weather is certainly cooperating, it’s time to show this little frock. It’s very simple, cool, and very cute!
So much fun to discover one of these because not many of them have survived. Plain shift style – but certain features tell its age. Notice the vintage snaps on the shoulder straps. Usually you see these on older Western-wear garments.
I especially like the way that the neckline is constructed – it makes all the difference in how the dress falls. Even though it’s as casual as a house-dress, it also looks good with a chain or macrame’ belt, and I like the patch pockets, too.
This is just the kind of “jeans-and-t-shirt” outfit that women were likely to wear for everyday in the late Sixties, when actually wearing jeans and a t-shirt was not quite as common as it is now.
Put on some pretty sandals and a necklace, carry a cute purse and you’d look super out and about town.
