You won't have to follow a trail of crumbs to get your own wacked-out Hansel and Gretel Lanz of Salzburg dress, like, say, THIS ONE:


Here's a closeup of the Hansel-y, Gretel-y part: 


You can find this dress on eBay, if you want to commemorate child-endangerment and near-cannibalism. Have fun!

I like it…it’s a maxi dress that will actually foster meaningful conversation instead of just “Where did you get that?” and “You paid what???” Yeah, much more meaningful.

frightening story, lovely dress

I love it- especially how the stripes turn out to be really big, tall scary trees! I suppose you could hide a lot of children under that thing too…

I think it is a great dress, too! The wide stripes turned trees, the vintage-y illustrations. Plus it looks cool comfortable and is fairly modestly cut. It’s a winner!

Very cute! I want it. Wait… How much?! Never mind.

I dunno…I see those stripes and that printed hem, and all I can think of are my great-grandmother’s awesome 1940s dishtowels. [sigh]

Truly, I cannot imagine anyone I knew or ever was even around wearing this dress. Maybe, and only maybe, it would have been used during very private lounging time – like on a hot summer night after a shower.

I love Hansel and Gretel. A girl saves her brother and herself by using her wits.

Oh, I do want commemorate child endangerment and near cannibalism! Too bad it’s not my size.

Ohh, another interesting print! Lovely!

My mom used to wear Lanz nightgowns as party dresses in the 60’s and 70’s. Like this one:

Some girls did that with the original Laura Ashley slips, petticoats and nightdresses, too.
