1930s dress for sale

A lot of readers asked if I would be making any 30s dresses to sell, so I went ahead and made one with some fabric I had lying around. It's a pretty little print with yellow roses, a very thin and light fabric, I think it's a cotton blend, but it's very cool :)

It's trimmed in cotton eyelet lace, and has mother of pearl button detail. The side closes with buttons and button holes like this one, all hand finished. I think it will need a belt to make sure the side closure lies right, I always have to wear one with my side button dresses. If this one proves popular I'll make another one in heavier cotton, and hopefully draft the pattern to make it in a larger size.

If you would like to buy the dress, or have any questions just email me at solanahraquel@gmail.com

I LOVE it.... Too bad it won't fit my plus size figure, but perhaps once you draft a larger size it will. Gorgeous all around though! You certainly did a FABULOUS job, my dear!!!

Super cute! I love the fabric and buttons.

Hey Bird said...

I am so inspired by the lovely dresses you make. This one is so cute!

It's very, very sweet! Great pattern too. :) You should do one with vintage bakelite buttons in a pretty color! That would be adorable! And rickrack trim! Ok, I'll stop now.

Oh, this dress is perfection. Looks very authentic, and I like all the little details. If you ever make larger sizes, I will snatch one up!

Tess said...

That fabric is so darling! I'm beyond impressed with your skills and your completely reasonable pricing! Too bad it was a little big for me. Out of curiosity, do you ever take commissions/orders?
