Beautiful lace and satin ribbon details, and voluminous skirt with ruffle hem. Tie sash at waist, zipper at back, and attached lining. Original tags attached. C. 1970s.

A cult classic since it’s birth in the Summer of Love, Gunne Sax is widely popular for it’s prairie and Victorian/Edwardian styles and has styled generations of romantics. A true testament to the cyclic nature of fashion, Gunne is one of the most copied fashion styles to this day; but an authentic Gunne piece is always distinct because of the detail of its embellishments and quality in craftsmanship.

 As vintage sizing usually varies from item to item, actual measurements can be the most accurate way to determine sizing & fit. We hand measure all our garments. Measurements are taken in inches, with the garment laying flat and then doubled where appropriate for correct sizing (i.e. for waist & bust).

For best fit, we recommend checking measurements of your best fitting garment or your own body. Please get in touch if you have any enquiries regarding measurements or fit.
