RESERVED ON LAYAWAY Rare 1930s Hungarian Peasant Dress with Multicolored Embroidery and Smocking


  • Product Description

      Charming, wonderful, ethereally light - this is an authentic mid 1930s Hungarian peasant dress, and it's everything. America became just obsessed with folk costume dresses and inspired styles in the mid to late 30s. The white cotton is as sheer and lightweight as can be. The shoulders, cuffs and waistline are smocked with white. The bodice is elegantly embroidered and embellished with openwork in soft pastel hues - green and coral and pink and light blue and purple and yellow.  The hem has been taken down to it's maximum length in the past, and finished with an imperfect hand stitch. It's a perfect length, though. There's nothing about the dress I don't adore! The dress closes on the side with snaps.


      Shoulders: 14"
      Bust: 37"
      Waist: 27"-29"
      Hips: 52"
      Length: 42"

      Label: None Present
      Material: Cotton
      Condition: Very Good minus

      This dress is clean, fresh and ready to wear. As noted, the hem has been let down, and if you look closely you can find the original line of the hem. There is the tiniest bit of yellowing around the edge of the neckline. I find no other issues to note - this wears beautifully.
