This lovely mid- 1920s style dress in black rayon crepe is my homage to the flapper era, echoing the typical tubular, slip-on, drop waist knee-length style with the beautiful contrasting geometric art deco style vintage silk embroidered trim adorning the v-neck, long gathered sleeves and the bodice. The skirt also features the popular wide box side pleats. And tucks at the back of the neck.
This beautiful chocolate brown mid-1930s inspired blouse in delicate wool lace knit fabric has got all the elements of the quirky style of the era with its fun large jester style collar, puff sleeves, small vintage hand painted wooden buttons down the front for fastening and the belt with vintage buckle. The perfect separate to go with your 1930s skirt!

This delightful mid- 1930s style jumper had already seen the light of day earlier with butterscotch coloured bakelite buttons, and here revived with rusty red coloured ones and a matching early 1930s style panelled skirt with buttons on the kick pleats down the front and the back, which makes this set perfect for one of those early autumnal strolls. The skirt fastens with snap fasteners at the side.
I rarely work with knit fabrics but just wanted to give it a try and this sweet mid- 1930s style cinnamon coloured cotton crochet knit fabric blouse was the result.
With its unusual eye catching large geometric collar embellished by contrasting 1930s bakelite buttons, puff sleeves and waist band sitting just on the upper hips, also with vintage buttons is the ultimate and perfect separate to complete your 1930s look. It has hook and eye closure at the back of neck.
This sweet early 1930s style day dress in Kaye England repro print cotton is the perfect example of the feed sack style dresses of the era. It features very art deco style construction with the large pointed collar, ‘double tie’ and the triangle shaped cream cotton lawn inserts on the pockets and sleeves. Two small bakelite buttons bring focus to the tie. The dress pulls over the head.
Here’s my shot at early 1930s style knitwear in form of this olive/navy/beige striped ribbed cotton jersey jumper and matching beret. What makes this little number a homage to the Art Deco style are the contrasting panels cut on bias forming striking geometric formations. Stripes and plaids cut diagonally this way were very popular at the time. It also features long narrow kimono sleeves and belt with original vintage buckle.
Stripes, stripes, stripes. The contrasting geometric Art Deco style yokes and pocket in this lovely mid-1930s style blouse in sheer navy and cream striped rayon, lowered bell sleeves and the front row of original black vintage glass buttons create the perfect match to wear with your 1930s half calf length skirt.
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.
