Charming Nautical Inspired Late 30s Polished Cotton Day Dress with Spectacular Puffed Sleeves


  • Product Description

      This vintage late 1930s sailor dress has, hands down, the best sleeves I think I've seen this calendar year. Made of a polished cotton, this charming frock has framatic, sculpted puff sleeves that come to life on your arm. The neckline is high, with radiating pintucks that match the cuffs of the sleeves. Blue and white piping is used as an accent throughout, edging the curve of the outside sleeve, a bow at the neckline, and as sleek lines and bows down the center front and rear.  This nautical inspired cutie has buttons and loops at the back of the neck, and snaps along the side. It is quite possibly homemade, and one of a kind.

      This dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear. There remains at subtle remainder of soil at the neck from old makeup, and a faint bit of soil at the inside edge of the sleeve. The white in the piping has tanned a bit with age, but not enough to detract. There is a tiny strain at the base of the snap closure. This beauty is sturdy and wears well. I find no other issues to note!
