Summertime Sundress Season

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

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!
