Depression Era early 1930s Dress
This is a very elegant, classic, early 1930s dress that is in great condition considering how old it is!
Lovely long sleeves with matching fabric covered buttons that snap with a single snap. The back is constructed similarly, with sewn on faux buttons and a single snap at the back of the neck. A simple frill at the neck.
I believe this dress is made of satin, because it’s soft and shiny on one side and matte on the other side (the matte side is the outer side- it’s shiny inside).
The skirt has about a 4 inch hem, and the seams appear to be reinforced with additional hand stitching.
