A little treat I made for myself: an early 1930s inspired stripey dress
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.
With side snap fastening.

Mid-1930s day dress
This lovely mid-1930s style novelty print rayon crepe dress is quite the eye- catcher.

The 3/4 length puff sleeves , gathered at the hem also add an rather interesting touch.
The dress has a kick pleat at the front of the skirt, and a belt with black crepe contrasting piping and a beautiful Art Deco cream/yellow buckle.
Snap fasteners at the side and hook and eye closure at the back of neck.

Here comes a mid-1930s inspired crochet knit fabric blouse

It has hook and eye closure at the back of neck.
My homage to Claudette Colbert’s iconic outfit in “It Happened One Night” (1934)
I’ve wanted to recreate this iconic outfit from one of my favourite films, ” It Happened One Night” for quite some time now and here is my homage to that simple, yet striking “travelling suit”, Claudette Colbert donned in her role as the spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews.
The original one would have had a cardigan in knitted fabric and probably a rayon or woolen skirt. My version is in viscose rayon for both cardigan and skirt.
The very popular way of cutting fabric on bias in the era and here in a striped fabric creates the typical geometric deep v pattern both at the front and back, by having a central seam. The cardigan also features a Peter Pan collar and cuffs in white cotton contrasting with the main fabric. It has original vintage 1930s Art Deco buttons both for fastening and for the belt.
The calf length skirt has two kick pleats at the back and one at the front. Fastens with snap fasteners and a vintage button at the side.
