Late 1920's everyday dress

From the seller:

A classic 1920's everyday dress. This was the type of dress that a woman would wear during the 1920's on an an average day. SHe might have worn it to run an errand or go to a neighbor's house for a cup of sugar, but it was not the sort of dress that would have been worn to a party or wedding or church service or for an evening out.

The dress is made of 100% cotton. It has a navy blue background & a "checkerboard" print in cream. Small collar, vee neckline, 3/4 length sleeves w/cuffs. Dropped waistline accented w/cream pipin, 2 belt loops. Pull-on style - no hooks nor snaps.

Size - Large. Actual measurements of the dress - bust 40", waist 40",hips 44", sleeve 22", length 44".

Condition - overall, good. However, the dress does have a little age - there is some very slight fading in front. Also, a 1/2" x 1/4" spot on the upper back (spot barely shows). Otherwise, good condition.


From Me:

I almost thought this was an early 1930's feedsack dress due to the print but the style and cut is very 1920's.
