Game of Thrones | 1969 Black Label Gunne Sax
This is a rare Black Label original Gunne Sax by Jessica, San Francisco from 1969. Black Label Gunne Sax dresses were among the first ever made; this label was not used again after 1970.
Jessica McClintock designs were pure romance and were reminiscent of renaissance style with San Francisco hippie flare thrown in. This amazing feminine Gunne Sax maxi dress has a tailored empire bodice with a deep vee neckline, laced up corset style, and sweet puffed cap sleeves all trimmed with jute. Bodice features pastel pink calico print with a plain cream insert. Gently gathered full calico floral skirt with a plain cream insert in the frontbonly and a 2-tiered ruffle at the bottom. Dress zips up the back with a deep square cut. Unlined.
There are some light spots that didn't come out during cleaning: these are located on the front of the skirt near the jute trim; also a darker spot on the skirt ruffle, and the jute trim along the bottom ruffle has a small area where it has frayed and is worn - please see photos. These spots are light and blend in with the fabric, and are only seen upon close inspection. There is also an imperfection in the fabric on the bodice - please see photo for detail. The dress presents beautifully and this price reflects these imperfections.
