Vintage Inspiration: Patio Dresses
I recently came across a navy blue patio dress (you can see it on my Instagram) and it got me thinking about how wonderful these little mid-century dresses are. They are usually handmade, have a ton of silver ric rac on them and range in colors although I've seen a lot of them in turquoise and white in my day!
While I was looking for photos tonight I found a lot of advertising and photos with little girls in patio dresses (isn't the photo above adorable?) but I rarely see this style of dress in kid's sizes at estate sales. I wonder if they were kept or were worn out by children years ago?
