1935 Summer Dress Fashions

1935 Summer Dress Fashions

Flattr this!

This entry is part 13 of 17 in the series 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company Catalog

Here are some summer dress fashions from the 1935 Chicago Mail Order Catalog, including two full color pages. These old fashion catalog scans are lovely illustrations of the 1930s silhouette and dress lines. I scanned the whole layout, too, so you can get the full effect of the illustrations. “Look as sweet as you are” the sepia toned ad with the blonde in a polka dot dress reads.

Swanky Seersucker 3 Piece outfits…

Fast color standard quality summer cottons. “Fashions Newest” (for 66 cents!). “Tahiti Lawn- that romantic south sea adaptation – extra long length” gowns. “Sweet and Lovely, Style Queen Values are Unbeatable”.

I love the romantic way these 1930s ads read!

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
