1930s Vintage Hand Sewn Day Dress
Due to its age, this dress has some light staining and discolouring, including two larger marks at the hem- see photo #5. Gentle hand washing might lift some of this. Over all, though, the dress is in very good wearable condition.
The dress is entirely hand sewn. The fabric is very light and printed with a Oriental motif. The fine and even seam stitching on such light fabric is beautiful and a sign of skill. The hand ruching on the bodice is a lovely decorative touch.
