Meeeeemories ... light the corner of our closet

Remember when Gunne Sax meant the prairie dress look? By the 1980s Gunne Sax was a label splashed all over taffetta prom dresses that had more in common with Princess Diana than Laura Ingalls Wilder, but that wasn't always the case.

Also in Chubby sizes! Yikes!

My junior prom dress (1981) was Jessica McClintock for Gunne Sax, and senior year, my mom (a gifted seamstress) made my dress from one of their patterns. The were both Edwardian in style, and both gorgeous. Nothing whatever like the items shown, or like the taffeta "Dynasty Dresses" that came after.
