1970s Gingham and Florals Prom dress

1970s Gingham and Florals Prom dress

Flowy flounces and florals flawlessly fuse in this fun and fresh feminine frock.

 

This ethereal 1970s maxi would make a perfectly soft and sweet prom dress for a vintage loving ingenue. And yet it's equally appropriate for a romantic Springtime picnic, or simply for frolicing through a field of daffodils. 

 

Featuring a cotton base of charming blue gigham overlaid with dreamy floral printed chiffon . A super flattering empire waist, accentuated by a removeable moss green, crushed velvet bow and sash - attached with delicate hand-sewn snaps.  Topped with a flirty ruffle flounce that embellishes the entire top edge of the dress. And a slight mermaid flare at the bottom hem gives the wearer the appearance of literally floating on air.

 

With a hidden back center zipper and delicate spaghetti straps, this dress looks to be home made by a very skilled seamstress, and is in amazing condition! (see final pics above for a few tiny signs of age - none visable while wearing).
