Vivavintageclothing Vintage Dress
This early 1930's cotton day dress has ivory and burgundy flowers scattered over a pale green background. The bodice has a cute mini-sweetheart neckline, slightly puffed sleeves, and 9 decorative, carnelian-colored, molded plastic buttons. The skirt has two pleats on each side, sewn down until the hip, and then released to the hem. The original belt has a matching fabric-covered buckle. The dress fastens with snaps at the side seam, and a tiny button at the back of the neck. Housedresses like this one were meant to fit loosely, so please compare to a garment you have for best fit. It is probably a petite, since the shoulder to waist measurement is proportionally shorter. Bust: measures 50" flat, to fit up to a 46" loosely Waist: 44" flat, up to 41" loosely Hip: 50" flat, up to 46" loosely Length: 41" Shoulder seam-to-seam: 18" Shoulder to waist length: 15.5"
