This cotton pique day dress, made at the very edge of the 1930s to the 40s is possibly one of the cutest garments I've ever sold. The bodice is a solid white cotton pique, while the short, puffed sleeves, the skirt and fantastic waistband are all printed pique. The print is a macro floral, with blue posies and utterly giant -er, raspberries I think. The neckline features a beautiful and heavy handmade crochet lace. The waistband? That's maybe one of the best cover, made to look like a separate piece that overlaps, with two peaked points. The skirt is gathered, and has two clever little pockets with triangular accents. It closes along the back of the bodice with buttons.
Shoulder to Waist: 15"
Label: None Present, likely homemade
Condition: Very Good minus
This dress is clean and ready to wear. There's some subtle yellowing around the neckline, but I didn't want to treat it aggressively when washing it, as the print is so vibrant. There are scattered tiny snags to the weave of the pique, and a few very tiny spots in the skirt, but you won't notice when you wear it. It's absolute darling, sturdy and strong.
