Beautiful Blue 1930's Dress

From the seller:

Antique/Vintage Georgette or Chiffon dress, that was stored with a note dated 1938 thanking the owner for the loan of the dress. The dress appears to be handmade. It is not wearable, good for study or pattern making only. The slip is silk and is fragile and shattered, the dress is faded, lighter than the jacket and has some age tanning, spots, frays, small holes, maybe a small tear or two at seams. Small size, approx measurements laying flat: high waist 14.5", arm pit to arm pit 16" and shoulder to hem 40". The dress has snaps under the ruffle collar in back which the jacket snaps onto to hold it up. A wonderful study piece! Be sure to view the many photos. Thanks for browsing!

From Me:

What a lovely dress! I'd love to make one similar for Easter.
