SIZING and CONTENT:
Her exterior Fabric is Sheer 65% Poly 35% Cotton Blend, Under-Slip is not sheer 100% Acetate and 100% Nylon Lace!
If you're a fan and collector of Gunne Sax gowns like I am, you've probably noticed their sizing can be a bit wacky sometimes! lol :D
You should always go by measurements given and not the tagged size on them and compare to a dress you have that fits you well, because they always seem to vary from gown to gown... plus sizing has changed a lot over the last few decades!
So, that said, here are some measurements for your perfect fit on this gown! :)
Tagged a Vintage Size 13, Underarm to Underarm is 38 inches around, Bust 36 3/4 inches around when tied at her tightest (and of course may be loosened a bit by the drawstring/lace up cinch bodice) working best on 34 to 35 inch bustlines, Waist 29 3/4 inches, Length from the top of her shoulder to hemline 57 inches!
*~*~Please be sure to compare these measurements to a piece that you already own to insure a proper fit, and always allow an extra inch or two for comfort... Thank you!~*~*
Also, Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have prior to your purchase and I'm always happy to help, especially when there is a no return policy, such as on this gown and we want to make sure she'll work well for you! :)
Appears NEVER WORN and the only thing I can see to tell you about is the main Gunne Sax tag is missing (the green paper size tag still remains in the skirt seam though!),
she is in SUPERB CONDITION with Zero Visible Flaws!

It has become legend, a historic symbol... the love generation.
People from all walks of life, young and old alike, try to recapture the "Woodstock Spirit"
All of this started a huge Bohemian lifestyle and clothing movement, especially in San Francisco and other select California cities, thus designer names like Gunne Sax, Lorrie Deb, Candi Jones and a few other gorgeous lines were born! These vintage dresses and gowns are just as popular, sought after and highly collectible today as they were in the 60s and 70s! Perhaps even more so, as "Rainbow Gatherings" are still put on all around the world today!
The term has become associated with various artistic or academic communities and is used as a generalized adjective describing such people, environs, or situations: bohemian (boho—informal) is defined in The American College Dictionary as "a person with artistic or intellectual tendencies, who lives and acts with no regard for conventional rules of behavior."
2009 celebrated the 40th anniversary of The Woodstock Music and Art Fair, more commonly known as "Woodstock" or "The Woodstock Festival" and in this spirit we are offering all of our finest Authentic Vintage Romantic Bohemian, Hippie Chic and Renaissance Fairy Dresses and Gowns!
We are always crossdresser/cd/tv/tg friendly
