Women's 30s White Summer Dress Body Con Vintage XS VFG
This is sweet and simple early 1930s dress that comes alive on the body. The upper bodice is styled as a yoke that curves down to form the armholes. Ease for the bust is created with four small dart/pleats from the waist. plus five pintucks that radiate from the bottom of the scooped neck yoke. The six gore skirt hugs the body until a bit above the knee, where there are a pair of shallow pleats in front and in back.
SIZE: No size label. The bust was taken in by a previous owner - original seams are still present. Removing the alteration would restore 1 to 1.5" there.
|Bodice length from shoulder seam||14.5"||37|
FABRIC/COLORS: White, light weight, and a little silky to the touch. I think it is most likely rayon. The weave is reminds me of a mesh pattern - I have seen this referred to as tropical.
TAGS: No maker's tag, but there is a faded NRA tag tucked into a seam, which dates this to between 1933 and 1935.
CLOSURES: The dress closes with three snaps (plus a hook and eye at the waist) along the left side seam
CONDITION: A few small scattered snags. No stains, holes or tears.
