Those are very interesting. They look very vintage with a mod flare! I have a dress that was my great grandmothers, she made, and I have worn it several times to christmas parties. I always get tons of complements on it.

Vintage rocks!!

As we look back into the 70's...we see high necks and LONG sleeves...
(and boy was the thing hot in 106 degree weather...)...but I liked it..
it was white organza over white lining with small flocked red rose buds all over...
My date was in a baby blue tux with black pants and a white ruffled shirt...

(One of the girls came as Little Bo Peep...complete with crook..her date had white, tailed tux, complete with top hat and cane...)(5 girls managed to come in the SAME dress....from the shop in town, that didn't want my families business...we weren't their kind. Dr's/Lawyers/ Indian Chief's kids...)
(the girls in the same dresses never forgot and made sure the shop didn't either. it went out of business.....)

It's nice to see someone has some dresses that leave something to the imagination. Very pretty dresses. I didn't even realize that you could get dresses like that. Course, I don't have any babies at home anymore.
