All three of these frocks were custom-sewn and I think that the top two belonged to the same woman, because they are so similar. Wasp-waisted or halter style, these gingham dresses have been signs of summer for decades. I REALLY wish I had Madge and Stella here to show them off properly!
All are very simple, with back zippers and store-bought trims. The fabric in the yellow and white one is a bit more modern-looking and I would say it was a late-’60’s to early-’70’s creation. The first two would be a few years older.
As plain as these are, I’d never pass them up. I still love them because they are so of-that-time and look really good on. Simple belts add a lot and, of course, you can accessorize . . . .
