Here the lovely Lila dress from my early 1930s bow dress collection gets a revamp in navy blue seersucker cotton. The vertical and horizontal panelling with it’s double triangles give the dress the familiar deco touch. It also has Bakelite buttons and belt buckle. Snap fastening at the side.
This beautiful early 1930s inspired dress in navy organic hand-weaved cotton with white stripes is the perfect example of structural deco panelling in horizontal and vertical, creating an interesting visual with peaked Vs both front and back. The large collar is also very typical of the era. The white early plastic belt buckle and buttons compliment the dress perfectly. Side closing with fasteners.
This lovely mid-1930s inspired beauty in chocolate brown silk/wool crepe blend with raglan balloon sleeves and slashed neckline include a silk rust orange cravat type detail very typical of the era, with bakelite button side fastening and also a beautiful deco belt buckle.
Here I present a mini collection based on the idea and variations of the same dress, worn at different times of the day, mid-1930s style:
Day, afternoon and evening.
