Hippie summer 111.jpg

♥ DESCRIPTION: An really lovely, vintage, soft cream / creamy white, cotton crocheted day or evening dress, which would be beautiful as a wedding bohemian wedding or bridesmaid dress, or to wear as a guest at a wedding or christening ~ with such lovely and elegant styling and with a really attractive crochet knit made up of recurring circles throughout ~ featuring a wide and very flattering rounded neckline ~  the bodice comes down to a slightly high waist which is a really pretty and flattering style, with the waistline accentuated by a thick band of different wider spaced crochet ~ ribbon can be laced through the crochet waist band (see pictures) and looks beautiful like this, adding a splash of colour. We have used black satin ribbon, but you could equally well use any colour ribbon of your choice in satin, velvet etc, and the ribbon could be left shorter or very long and flowing down ~ especially if worn as a bride or bridesmaid's dress, the ribbon colour can be used to co-ordinate with accessories etc. 

~ From the waistband, the dress gently flared out gradually towards the hem line and ends in a slightly scalloped hem ~ this dress will be midi on most heights, please check measurements below. ~ The sleeves are pretty and three quarter length and finished with scalloped edges. ~ The back is very similar to the front, and just as beautiful ~ waist accentuated by ribbon if you choose, or left without, either way lovely ~ skirt flaring out slightly towards hem creating a very beautiful and versatile style which is elegant whilst being incredibly pretty!!! It's DIVINE ~ and with a very sexy bohemian vibe!!! 

Would make a really beautiful wedding gown or bridesmaid's dress, or as an evening dress, or out on a special date, or festival, or just to add a bohemian flare to your everyday ~ can be worn dressed up with high heels and lipstick, just add a floppy hat for a wedding, flip flops on the beach, cowboy boots for the boho hippie vibe!!! Very versatile ~ that's part of the beauty of crochet ~ it can take you from casual day, to dressed up at night, so effortlessly!!! Worn with a maxi or short slip so your  legs are glimpsed through the crochet lace, or with a bandeau top & skirt slip, or over a bikini on the beach ~ or for a very flower power look, with nothing much beneath except underwear perhaps....IMPOSSIBLY PRETTY!!! ~ We love this dress!!!

Excellent vintage condition ~ lovely soft fabric  ~ 100% Cotton crochet ~ in a soft creamy white ~ a real beauty! xxx


~ 70s Fashion Revival & Crochet ~ 

As seasons change we call for another tribute to a decade...Coupled with the vintage and 20s vibes echoing through our wardrobes and catwalks, 70s retro has made a triumphant return and with it, a variety of crochet has been seen on the catwalks ~ and we couldn’t be happier.

Crochet, once a hippie-associated trend, has had a refreshing new look and feel that’s uber-stylish. The fashion revival of crochet – reintroduced from the popular 70s style – has been gaining much popularity recently as a result of the bohemian allure that it offers, which gives a simple yet chic vibe to any outfit.

There is evidence that crochet dated from the 1800s, possibly from even earlier. Queen Victoria famously boosted the popularity of Irish Crochet Lace when she purchased some  ~ she even learnt to crochet herself! The popularity of crochet hit a peak between 1910 and 1920, with Edwardian fashions calling for more complex stitch patterns, primarily using white and creams. However, it was in the 1960s that crochet took on a whole new meaning ~ It was transformed from the intricate work of the Edwardians into the bright colours and granny squares which appealed to the psychedelic youth and emerging hippie culture. Hand made crochet continued to grow in popularity, well into the 70s ~ with dresses, coats, jackets etc being made in a variety of shapes and colours...and after a long history, all these items are now gaining in popularity once again and are gracing our couture catwalk shows, appealing to all those who crave to express the hippie laid back boho vibe. And especially now, with the established international culture of  music festivals, true vintage crochet dresses and capes, ponchos, coats have become the most sought after festival fashion item ~ warm, sexy, versatile, unique ~ and just so bohemian. Seen on many celebrities and models, crochet is a beautiful look for many occasions ~ and in whites and creams looks stunning as a wedding or bridesmaid's dress for bohemian, gypsy or hippie deluxe weddings.


Crochet has garnered a lot of attention on the catwalks with designers from Ralph Lauren to Gucci showcasing chic fashion-forward dresses, skirts, hats and more, using fabric and textures imitating the beauty of the handmade design; though it’s not purely limited to the catwalk. Paul Smith is already well known and highly regarded as the designer at the forefront of specialist crochet couture fashion with his exceptional 'granny squares' dresses, knitwear, super long scarves etc. High street hot spots, including Topshop, the barometer of London street fashion, featured crochet in their recent collections, recognising its popularity, its beauty, and versatility ~ all interwoven with that laid back, easy to wear, carefree, boho style. Many celebrities and models, such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Cate Blanchett, Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Madonna, among so many others, have been seen in a variety of crochet items, especially maxi dresses for red carpet events.


Crochet pieces may have hippie inspirations, but the aesthetic is always luxurious with a modern sense of refinement and an easy way to achieve that feminine, sexy and bohemian vibe!!! 

So, don’t forget to put a flower in your hair, or on your ankle as seen at D&G ~ and grab yourself some of the sweetest vintage crochet pieces and get ready to reveal your bohemian side!!!
