Meet Coral, she is a RARE and COVETED 1970s Gunne Sax midi length prairie dress, in a sought after peach palette. This is a very rare and collectible Gunne Sax sundress, and its easy to see why. She has the most dreamy peachy palette with mixed floral prints and is adorned in stunning lace and ribbon detailing. She has the classic Gunne corset bodice with sweet peplum and a tiered skirt. It is so rare to come across Gunnes in the UK, so this really is a very prized piece.. and I hope she finds an amazing home today.
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small waisted 10. Gunne size 7.
Bust - 32" - 35" due to corset
Waist - 26"
Length - 43"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Coral has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. It does seem like she has been altered at some point, it looks like she has had panels neatly sewn in under her arms to make the bodice bigger. This has been nicely done and really is not too noticeable. I was going to remove these but then I thought it actually may help her fit more people, so instead she is being sold as is. Usually this dress would be priced £225-250. See last photo for more.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
