Wow! Such a stunning 1930s cotton crochet dress. Beautiful hand crocheted ones like this are getting hard to find! So many quintessentially 30s features: the open worked yoke; the faceted glass buttons at the back of the neck - and those wonderful sleeves with the dropped shoulder and the slight puff towards the bottom. I'd date this to 1933-5.

As is common with 30s dresses, this dress is made in two pieces - a top and a skirt - and is then joined together at the waist with elastic threaded through both halves. It's a feature you never see in later crochet dresses.

I'm afraid the white leather belt is not included. Pair it with your own! White, brown, blue or green would all be fantastic! And a scarf tied round the waist would look amazing too.

Size: I wear a UK 14, US 10 and although I can get it on, it's a bit too tight. I would recommend for a UK 10-12 or US 6-8

Bust: 18" flat at rest, stretching to 20" max
Waist: 13" flat at rest, stretching to 16" max
Hips: 18" flat at rest, stretching to 20" max
Length: 48" nape of neck to hem.

Condition: Excellent. No holes, no marks, no stains, no fade. Elastic seems strong. The only flaw is that there is the tiniest amount of pilling to the cotton in some areas. Truly, an incredible piece!
