Simply White

Shown is a long baptismal dress with lovely detailing on the bottom.
This for the Gibson Girl in you--delicate with leg of mutton sleeves.
The little girl's petticoat is from an 1890s store.

This sweet little dress shows its age which is now a sepia tone, but
the pretty lacy bodice is lovely.  Perfect for framing or to add to
a collection.
I love vintage clothes of all shades and hues, but these pieces shown in the pictures have a particular appeal just because there is such beauty in white dresses for women and children.  Can you picture playing lawn croquet or having tea on a veranda wearing the long gown?   According to trends shown in magazines, the color for spring and summer is neutral with white being at the top of the list.  There are so many variations of white so it's such a versatile choice to go with.  The items shown in the pictures will be available at Weekend Cottage in Clear lake, Mn.  Any questions, contact me through my profile or leave a comment.
