Original 1930s 30s Vintage Floral Pattern Cotton Voile Summer Dress
This wonderful summer dress was made in the early 1930s from a lightweight sheer cotton voile. The fabric depicts a soft floral pattern in candy pastel shades of pink, pale blue, green and yellow. The dress features a keyhole neckline with a decorative arrow tab at the top, adorned with two transparent buttons. A flattering circular cap sleeve and gently flared skirt help to make this dress the perfect summer garment.
Bust: tight 32”
Length: 39 1/2”
This dress is in very good condition, however there are some small marks and a couple of seam pops, one above the press stud opening and one to the bodice as pictured.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
