Early 1930s style summer dress

This sweet early 1930s style pullover dress is actually a version of one I made a few years back, here in a repro cotton print from the marvellous  ‘ Antique Treasures’ collection by Paintbrush Studio.

The skirt is cut in bias giving it a lovely fleared effect and it features a Art Deco style triangular peak and two small pockets. The sleeves are the very popular capelet style of the era. The original 1930s buttons down the v- neck front and the pockets create a nice little detail also.

Perfect for the spring and summer!

 

 

 

 

A little something I made for myself

Sometimes you get the time to treat yourself and here’s the result; this sweet early 1930s inspired dress in seersucker cotton has that vibe of the feedsack fabric dresses of the Prohibition era. A very big favourite of the era, cutting fabrics on bias, in this case a stripey one (if they weren’t already printed diagonally) creating the diamond effect, both at the front and the back. The contrasting square collar in navy cotton has the fun, tie like finish and with beautiful diamond shape burgundy bakelite art deco buttons. Fastens with snap fasteners at the side.
