This is a 1930s/ 1940s handmade cotton house dress that we obtained from an estate sale. The fabric has a beautiful floral print of hibiscus and daisies in the colors
MAUVE PINK, TOMATO RED, WHITE and GREEN. It has kimono style cut sleeves, a fitted waist, and a sailor style collar with Trapunto stitching in black thread. The self belt is present and in good shape.
The garment buttons up the front with PINK Celluloid buttons. There is a fold over tab at the top that fastens on the inside with a small TOMATO RED button, and two metal snaps. The skirt has some fullness. Dress was photographed with a necklace that is not included. We have hand laundered the dress in a mild soap, stain treated it, then line dried, ironed, starched and steamed it for photography. The fabric is strong and the colors are good. Will need a steam/press before wearing.
