This pretty cream colored maxi dress from the 70s in the style of the very popular Gunne Sax dresses; it is trimmed with a lace inset in the bodice, and lace around the jewel neckline, sleeve hems and hems.

This has elbow length puff sleeves with banded, buttoned hems, and ties to pull the fullness of the dress to the back. The skirt flares to a full, flouncy hem with a deep ruffle all around.

This is pristine, and ready to wear.

These prairie dresses were very popular to wear to prom and especially to weddings, often as the bridal gown, many in many Bohemian settings, or outdoors, on the beach in a meadow or out in the timberland forests. Weave a head lei of flowers with ribbons trailing down the back for a truly hippie look.
