This pretty dress was made in the late 1930's.
Please note that it is a petite fitting piece for a shorter lady. The dress came to me in a collection of pieces where the lady had shortened a number of her garments. I wondered whether this piece may have been for a child but the size of the shoulder pleats and pads and from the proportions of the bodice it is clear it is an adult's dress but is just for someone short.
A smooth fitting bodice with neatly gathered yoke detail it has pleated sleeve heads and a neat ruffle at the hem. It fastens down the left side with poppers and would look great belted.
It will fit a 34" bust maximum. It is shown on a 35" bust mannequin and is too small for it. To ensure that it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own;
Flat bust 17.5"
Flat waist 14.5"
Flat hip 19"
Shoulders between sleeves 12"
Underarm sleeve length 6"
Shoulder to hem 37"
Flat cuff 5 1/4"
Very good, the only minor point to note is a single pinhead hole in the left bodice.
Has been washed, pressed and is ready to wear.
