With all the Victorian and Edwardian talk going on in the blog lately I thought a bit of a modern take might be fun. If I have a dirty little vintage secret it’s that I love Prairie Style dresses. Gunne Sax, Laura Ashley, Vera Bradley- I have a soft spot for the romantic cotton and lace dresses of the 70s and 80s.
I guess part of my fasination could be tied up in my love of Anne of Green Gables when I was a kid. The dresses in the Anne movies can certainly be tied in with the appeal of these dresses and tops and skirts!
Sadly, I only own one such dress at present but am always on the prowl for more.
They’ve seen a big jump in popularity lately, and I see lots of listed on Ebay and Etsy. I think they’re pretty neat and are a nice wearable vintage style with a bit of romanticism for day to day.
If you love the style but want to put your own twist on it there are vintage patterns to be had!
So what do you think? Do you like vintage Prairie Style fashions?
