A “SUMMER OF LOVE” “PRAIRIE DRESS” FROM THE LATE SIXTIES OR EARLY SEVENTIES

Stella definitely had to change her hairdo for this one, and it couldn’t be more perfect for her! I love the way this dress fits – much better on Stel than on a hanger, as I’d had to show it to you before. Very, very cute and so iconic from that turn-of-the-decade time between the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Dresses of this type were almost always made of woven cotton, as is this one, though some began to appear in the early ’70’s with polyester content. Mix and match patterns plus lots of color were common all the way through about 1965 – 1975. Makes me want to put on a big sun hat, stick some flowers in my hair and wander around . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
