Early 1930's Blue and White Dress
From the seller:
This is so gorgeous! I bought this in a vintage clothing store in the mid-1980's and only wore it a couple times. It has been in storage in a climate-controlled, acid-free environment since about 1988. This is in pristine condition for its age. The sleeves fluff out and it is such wonderful classic 1930's lines.
This is truly an incredible find! It has been very well preserved and cared for. It is approximately a size 6. I don't sew, and am hesitant to post measurements as I don't do those very well.
Please ask any questions before bidding. Remember that pictures are part of the description, and that with any vintage item, it is not brand new. Thank you.

Thanks for all the info and inquires! This is called a flutter sleeve and the pattern is a diamond crosshatch. Per the inquiries I've received, I am adding a picture of a little discoloration on the skirt which are very hard to see with the pattern, and measurements below. Good luck!

The above is a fashion plate from 1932. The plaid dress second from the left looks very similar to this extant one.
