Gorgeous Late 1930s Forest Green Dress of Seersucker-like Fabric with Embroidery


  • Product Description

      There is nothing like the charm of the late 1930s. This quintessentially autumn dress is surprisingly lightweight - a blend of cotton and rayon suitable for warmer climates. The forest green cloth is embellished with bright embroidery of little flowers, yellow, blue, and orange with green leaves. Likely homemade, the bodice is quite charming, with its defined yoke, pleated bust and button closure. There is a shallow pocket on the right, while the left is merely decorative. The dress closes on the side with snaps. The piece is finished very precisely - every last bit of selvage has a finished edge, so it won't fray. 


      Shoulders: 14"
      Bust: 38"
      Waist: 32"
      Hips: 44"
      Length: 44"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Cotton/Rayon Blend
      Condition: Good plus

      This dress wears beautifully. It is crisp and smart. There is a faint bit of fade around the edge of the collar that touches the neck, a narrow line of fade at the upper back, and a bit on the left cuff - nothing significant. The dress has been carefully hand laundered and steamed. It is ready to wear.
