This is an adorable handmade long sleeved blue and white cotton flower print feed sack dress from the 1930s. The white peter pan collar is a lovely contrast to the blue and white patterned bodice. The neckline has a simple and pretty white hand smocked pattern. There is a sweet little pocket made of the same fabric as the bodice with white trim and an embroidered white flower on the right side of the dress. The dress fastens in the back at the neckline with one hidden snap. This dress has a full and loose styling. This dress is approximately 2T-3T however, please see measurements below for correct fit.

This is one of four dresses that were made in the midwest in the 1930's by a farmer's wife for their little girl. All four dresses were part of an estate and were found in a box labeled: "Our Baby's Things - 1934 - 1935 Ohio." There are two small, faint marks on the right front bodice of the dress which I have been unable to remove with laundering. They were too faint to photograph but want to call them out in the description.
