Early 1930s style gabardine coat

I wanted to channel a bit of early Burberry in this classic gabardine cotton trench coat. The stand up collar ends in a tie closure but it can also be worn open and down. It has interesting triangular inserts in sleeves and deco shaped cuffs fastened with original 1930s wooden buttons. Also featured on the two pockets and fastening of the coat. The belt has an original Bakelite buckle. The back of the coat is tucked in at the neck and waist creating a lovely pleat effect.

 

 

 

Lila revamped

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.

 

Checks we like-an early 1930s delight

Sometimes it’s time to treat oneself and here’s something I made for myself over the weekend. This lovely early 1930s inspired blouse in sky blue and dark purple check cotton with yokes forming butterfly sleeves and fastened with original bakelite buttons both front and back has also a great little fan effect down the front by the yoke corners. The belt  also features an original bakelite buckle. Perfect for a summer day out!
