Vintage 1930s Blue Floral Cape Sleeve Day Dress

Raleigh Vintage

This mid-1930s day dress is a classic!  Lightweight dark blue cotton with small white flowers.  The sleeveless bodice has cape-like coverings over the shoulders with shirring at the top.  Keyhole neckline with a hook and eye closure.  The straight skirt has pleating on the bottom sides.  Original belt with celluloid buckle.  Keep in mind this dress slips on over the head with no side or back closures, so your measurements need to be slightly smaller than those of the dress.
