Gimme More Gunne Sax

Posted on April 20, 2012


Gunne Sax dresses have been a favorite of ours since childhood!  Gunne Sax is a clothing label  bought by Jessica McClintock in 1969 and the term is used for 1960’s and 1970’s prairie, medieval, renaissance dresses.  The term comes from “gunny sack,” those burlap bags used to store potatoes and often used for sack races.  This material was also used for late-19th and early-20th century dresses.  It may sound “granny” but take a look at these whimsical vintage Gunne Sax dresses for spring, just lovely!
