Vintage 1930s Brown Eyelet Day Dress

This would be wonderful to wear to a Lawn Party!  Lightweight brown cotton with a very large scale floral eyelet design.  The faux-wrap bodice has over-sized faux-pearl buttons.  There is a gorgeous lace collar.  The skirt is straight.  The dress slips on over the head with no side or back openings, so your measurements will need to be smaller than those of the dress.  Tie belt.  A matching lace bow (see last photo) came with the dress, but we are unsure of the exact use/position.  It could be stitched to the front or attached to the belt.  Our favorite idea for it is as a dramatic head piece (easily created with a bobby pin).

NOTE:  This lovely dress will require your favorite vintage slip.

Circa:  Mid-1930s
