Mid- 1930s style summer darling

This sweet mid-1930s style cotton dress in a lovely geometric Art Deco print has a front yoke with turned collar joined by original green Bakelite buttons and a jabot, both in cream Egyptian cotton muslin. The arrow shaped belt also in the same cream fabric fastens with a Bakelite button. It also features a centre pleat in the skirt hem, both at the front and back, formed by a triangular peak very typical of the era.

An interesting detail at the back is the triangular shaped yoke with fan like darts in the middle of the peak in the centre.

The 3/4 length sleeves are of the very popular balloon variety, narrower at the upper arm and ballooning towards the sleeve bands.

The dress has a side snap fastening.
