Sporty 1930s Plaid Day Dress with Puffed Sleeves and Bias Cut Peplum


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1930s dress, an sporty delight in plaid acetate. The palette is outdoorsy - this feels like the perfect autumn choice for a stylish scout. Olive green, brown, rose pink, lime, orange and aviation blue are an unusual and striking combination. The collar is large. Neckties of deep brown make a bow at the neckline.  The peplum is bias cut, giving a contrast in the direction of the plaid. The sleeves are puffed at the shoulder. The dress slips over the head and has no closures, but does still have the original self-fabric belt. This beauty was in my own collection for years before going to a friend, and has now found it's way back to me, so I am very excited to present it to you.

      Condition: Fair plus to good minus - borderline, but wearable as is

      This dress is charming wearable, but has some repairs and scattered issues to note. It was well loved before I bought it, and has rippling strain on the underside of the sleeves and near the underarm. The left sleeve has an old self-fabric patch and hand stitches closing up some off-seam tears.  I've also interfaced it a bit to make it more secure.The right side of the peplum has strain or snagging to the material, the left has three old repairs/patches, and the mid skirt has has strain at the center pleat. The buckle of the belt is soiled and frayed. This dress wears beautifully. I find no other issues to note -a great piece for an understanding collector who buys clothes to wear them.
