Original 1940s 40s Vintage Feed Sack Sky Blue Novelty Print Day Dress
This pretty and simple dress was made in the 1940s from a feed sack cotton. During the depression era, American companies would provide their bulk products such as grain and flour in fabric sacks. As a means to add value during these difficult times companies would print a pattern on the fabric of the sacks and customers were encouraged to use this material to make feed sack dresses. This particular feed sack dress is made from a dancing girl novelty print pattern on a sky blue background. The dress boasts a sweetheart neckline highlighted with a black fabric surround, which is repeated at the sleeve. The dress also has shapely darts at the waist and a metal zipper at the side.
Length: 45” plus 1 3/4” hem
The dress is in good condition, however there is faint water marking across the dress, super faint light damage across the shoulders and some stains to the hem as pictured.
