Vintage 1930s Purple Orchid Summer Dress

The fabric on this easy-to-wear 30s summer dress is so gorgeous!  Lightweight, slightly textured rayon crepe with a floral print of purple orchids.  Keyhole tie neck.  Straight silhouette a gathered skirt.  Unlined.  The dress slips on over the head with no additional openings.  It's so easy to wear for summer!

    Label:  none   
    Fabric: Rayon crepe    
    Circa:  Late 1930s 

    BEST FITS:   M  (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good.  The dress shows light, normal wear.  The elastic stitching at the waist has lost its stretch, but the dress actually works loose fitting or it can be belted.  The sleeves were removed because the fabric was destroyed (the dress fabric, however, is very strong), so the arm holes are lower than normal.  You may have to wear a camisole.  Priced Accordingly.

    Waist:  up to 32"
