Made myself an early 1930s style summer dress

Sometimes a new little treat is a welcome addition to your summer wardrobe, here in form of a sweet plaid early 1930s style cotton dress, cut on bias very much a trend of the era. It has a cross cut bodice fastening diagonally by large original vintage mother of pearl buttons and the contrasting coloured belt also features an original vintage mother of pearl buckle. The short sleeves’ contrasting navy bell shaped cuffs are a great little detail. Panelling at front of skirt with side pockets and low cut panel at the back. Fastens with snap fasteners at the side.

 

Nettie revamped

This plaid linen and cream cotton darling is the little sister to the original Nettie dress. Also cut on bias gives it a beautiful silhouette very typical of the 1930s. It features an original vintage 1930s button and buckle.
