Patterns of the Past - A 1930's Classic


I love this dress, from an unknown mail-order pattern company. From the hairstyle and length of the hem, I'm guessing right at or just before 1935. Left-click to enlarge or go to my Flickr account.

And I am sure that a size 14 was for a 34 inch bust.

Very nice pattern, and I think you have dated it purty close.

Just lovely. I wish all of us ladies could dress this way.
