Summertime Sundress Season

The fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer is credited with popularizing the sundress in the 1960s. The sundress is characterized by lightweight fabric, usually cotton, and a flowing fit. Some of the best examples of the sundress are from the 1970s, in the prairie style. This floral frock is a beautiful shade of maroon and is in great condition!

The perfect wrap to go with any of these stunning dresses would be a breathtaking dolman style coat.  This showstopper of a robe was made by Steinberg’s Saint Louis in the 1920s.

Another  more practical way to get the flapper look without actually  wearing the  fragile garments from the 1920s, is to wear vintage  from other decades that mimic the look.  Here is a flapper fashion from the 1960s  film Thoroughly Modern Millie.
