#30-550- XS 1930s Striped Cotton Dress - $55.00

Era - early 1930s
Measurements - 46 inches long, fits 32 inch bust, 26 waist, 38 hips
Label - none, handmade
Fabric - cotton
Cleaning - has been hand washed and hung to dry.

White cotton dress with stripes in yellow, black, blue and orange. Green buttons open on the bodice and more decorative buttons are down the front of the skirt. Unlined. Bodice is small compared to the hips. Wide loops on the waist for belt, each also has another green button. I bought this dress for myself,but the bodice is just too snug under the arms for my 34 inch bust. I was able to squeeze into the dress myself, but it tore when I was trying to get it on my mannequin. The tears have been repaired and I made a side opening with snaps to make it a bit easier to get into. Fabric is strong enough to wear.

Condition - Very good condition. A 4 inch vertical tear was repaired on the back on one side, running through the waist seam, along with a 3 inch repair also through the waist seam on the other side of the back.
