While we’re still in kind of a hippie – dippie mood, here’s the wonderful wrapper house dress I found, in a great psychedelic print. The first thing I noticed after my eyes told me that this garment was true vintage was the feel of the fabric. It is so silky and glossy that you just want to have it next to your skin and to run your hands over it. Add that to the figure-hugging fit and we’ve got a real sultry thing going on.
With all the seaming and piecing involved here, it’s hard to imagine that the dress was handmade but that may be true. It closes with great big metal snaps in order to fit close to the body and preserve modesty. I just love it and will wear it around home as one of those really convenient outfits that can also go out for running errands anytime.
We’re just about out of the Sixties now – just one more frock before strolling into the Seventies. Stay tuned . … . . . . . . .. . . … .. .. . . . . . …
