Vintage 30’s Brown and White Polka Dot Ruffle Neck Dress SOLD

It’s rare to find quality pieces from the early mid 30’s due to the depression.  That makes this a true find as it is not only of the time and well preserved, it is also GORGEOUS!  The dress is made from the traditional crepe material so famous in the early decades of the 20th century.  The crepe is festooned with symmetrical polka dots and grosgrain ribbons.  The ribbon finishes the hem, pockets and sleeves and two bows give some youthful whimsy to the sleeves.  The neckline is easily the most fascinating part of this piece.  The 5” wide chiffon ruffle is trimmed in breathtaking delicately hand crocheted trim.  All 34 original decorative buttons add some contrast to the chest.  A 22” painted Talon zipper closes the back while two 35” ties provide some adjustability at the waist.  There are a few stains on the ruffled collar as well as some strain to the seams on the back (please see photos).  Some strain on the seams would mean that this needs to be worn with some hang on the garment. Overall, however, the dress is in lovely shape and cuts quite the figure on.  Sz 0/2
