  • Handmade
  • Materials: zipper, plastic buttons, cotton

Please Read : If you need a custom size please note your order will be non-refundable. Simply including your measurements so I can help size for you is NOT considered custom. However, if your bust and waist are more than one size apart (i.e size 12 bust with an 8 waist) I will contact you and let you know it's considered a custom order and non-refundable if we proceed. This also includes dresses that are special ordered to be shorter. It's nearly impossible for me to resell such pieces, thank you for understanding.

SIZING: I get hundreds of sizing questions every year requesting the dress measurements. This isn't the the most effective way to get the right size. (It's a more common process with one size vintage purchases) Please, just order the size you usually wear with your favorite retailers and then include your BODY measurements during checkout. That's the only way to have the best fit. I try to respond to questions as quickly as possible but as I am a one-man-band I'm trying to eliminate unnecessary emailing. I also will custom size up to size 28 at no additional cost. Again, just select a size and include your bust, waist, hip measurements. Thanks!

NOTE : Please don't take ordering lightly. I appreciate every sale and canceling or ordering to try on for fun is hard on me. This supports my family. Thank you.

State Fair 1935 Dress // In Black+Tan gingham homespun

After watching tons of 1930's films I came up with this dress to encompass vintage design but also be wearable today. Sewn from 100% cotton. The bodice is gathered to the waist band giving it a "slumpy" look. This dress is structured but the design details give it a well loved and comfortable look. State Fair 1935 is probably my favorite design. As the designer it's my favorite both to sew and wear.

• Button Front
• Side Zipper
• Short, cuffed, Sleeves

Please select your size during check out; the dress size chart is in the last photo.

The dress is lovely! I especially love the fabric — it’s so soft and lightweight. It’s a bit see through against the light so be ready to wear a slip underneath. I find the dress a bit weird about the waist so I’ve decided I’ll have to wear it with a belt—cute! The color is very nice — looks quite different in the pictures but it is Black and Tan as described in the listing itself. I was also thankful that Hannah agreed to adjust the length to my liking. I can’t wait to order another pretty dress from her!Thank you!!!

This is my second dress from Hannah, and it does not disappoint. I absolutely love this dress. I feel like myself when I'm wearing Hannah's designs. My husband loves it when I wear them too. So flattering, feminine and modest. Well worth the wait! I'll be back for more!
