Yellow 1930's Dress

From the seller:

dorable vintage dress from the 1930's by June Fox. It is a summer day dress made of a soft handkerchief linen in sunny yellow. Its a shirt dress style with button up the bodice and a patch pocket on each side. The dress has the sweetest brown button details on the collar and pockets. It comes with the original matching belt with brown buckle. The mid-calf length skirt is slim with a single kick pleat in the front.

Condition: excellent, doesn't appear to have been worn, only flaw is a pinhole at the left hip, waist seam untacked in one spot under the belt, and couple tiny faint stains at the back shoulder (see picture)


shoulder-shoulder: 13 1/2"

across bust: 16"

across waist: 13"

across hips: 16"

length: 44"

From Me:

June Fox was a clothing manufacturer from 1922 until 1986. It seems to have been moderately popular in the 1950's. The style of this dress, however, is from about 1936. That kick pleat in the front with the button detail on the bodice is the giveaways for the date.
