Vintage late 30s dress is a smart summer style in a soft ivory linen. The sleeves are short and slightly puffed, the waistband is build in, and the pockets deep enough to actually use. I think the sleeves are a 1940s alteration of 1938 sleeves. There are pleats at the shoulder and gathers at the waist. The skirt is a twelve gore aline. The lovely texture of this linen, natural and slubbed is summer perfection. Little Bavarian hat buttons decorate the bodice (which actually closes with snaps) and just-off-primary colored embroidery makes wonderful flowers on the pockets. It closes with a side button placket.
Label: Debby Jr. Hollywood Style
Condition: Good plus
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There is some subtle bleed from the red flowers into the white on the pockets, but this is subtle. There's three little snags on the back of the bodice. I find no other issues to note!
