Two vintage bakelite buttons crown this lovely creation at the front. The belt also features a vintage bakelite buckle.
A little treat I made for myself: an early 1930s inspired stripey dress

It also has vintage bakelite buttons and buckle in navy.
With side snap fastening.

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.
