This gorgeous early 1930s style number in white and navy viscose rayon was just something I had to try. Being a big fan of stripey and check fabrics cut in contrasting panels, this clearly represents the popular cuts of the era. Very geometric art deco in style featuring a large collar, yet another classic of the 1930s, a v-shaped insert on the bodice , both front and back and the triangular pockets. It also has vintage bakelite buttons and buckle in navy.
Here I present a lovely early 1940s inspired dress in original vintage floral rayon gathered bodice, front and back, collar and the skirt. The light brick coloured yokes and belt in viscose rayon add a great contrast. It features an original vintage bakelite buckle.
It also features fabric covered buttons down the front, padded shoulders and elbow length sleeves.
Here’s one of the mid-1930s blouses from my recent vintage blouse collection in a lovely vintage floral silk. It has a gathered gabot down the front and tucks in sleeves. The back closes with eye and hook. The belt features a vintage buckle.
Here I present an early 1920s style jacket and jodhpurs combo making for a fetching hunting outfit. The jacket is made of a lovely basket weave wool blend fabric and the jodhpurs are in cotton needlecord. The slanted side pockets and the square breast pocket on the jacket make a nice design detail. The wide belt fastening the military style jacket also makes this rather masculine style a bit more feminine. The corduroy jodhpurs which were so popular for leisure wear are high waisted with vintage button closure at the sides and the legs. The balloon style legs give freedom of movement.
This beautiful early 1950s inspired dress in original 1950s embroidered cotton is a great example of the more streamlined silhouette of the era. It features an interesting zigzag style panelling with a gathered yoke on the bodice and kick pleat down centre of the skirt. Short upturned sleeves, pockets with button closure. With vintage buttons and buckle. Fastens with a zip at side seam.
This lovely early 1930s style printed cotton dress must be the culmination of the art deco loveliness of the era. With it’s contrasting bottle green insert intersecting with the main fabric of the dress and the large navy square bakelite buttons create a beautiful effect along with the geometric cut along the bodice and the skirt. It also features bell sleeves and a contrasting belt in bottle green cotton with an original vintage bakelite belt buckle and snap fasteners at the side.
This lovely mid- 1920s style dress in black rayon crepe is my homage to the flapper era, echoing the typical tubular, slip-on, drop waist knee-length style with the beautiful contrasting geometric art deco style vintage silk embroidered trim adorning the v-neck, long gathered sleeves and the bodice. The skirt also features the popular wide box side pleats. And tucks at the back of the neck.
This beautiful chocolate brown mid-1930s inspired blouse in delicate wool lace knit fabric has got all the elements of the quirky style of the era with its fun large jester style collar, puff sleeves, small vintage hand painted wooden buttons down the front for fastening and the belt with vintage buckle. The perfect separate to go with your 1930s skirt!
