Julie: "Don't you wish you could travel back in time, and make purchases, such as these (below)?  I sure do.  Lingerie was often prettier than the dresses, with the most feminine embroidery; love the jacquard print on the blue slip.  The red you see is also a taffeta slip ... not a dress. I would have liked to have seen a bow on the top ribbon band on the peach (first) slip with the ends reaching to the bottom ribbon band;  rest assured I would have added one.  Love the pink slip with the petals on the bodice to coordinate with the flowers on the skirt."

Julie:

"I ran across this bouffant slip in a 1961 Montgomery Ward catalogue.  Isn't it scrumptious?       You are probably familiar with this site.  It has many vintage catalogue pages from a variety of catalogues."
