Vintage 1930s Brown Summer Crochet Dress

This gorgeous 1930s crocheted dress would be perfect for a lawn party!  Rich brown cotton yarn in an open pattern crochet.  The neckline sits wide on the shoulders.  The sleeves are elbow length and puffed and close with tiny snaps on the cuffs.  The bodice and skirt are both fitted.  There is a slight flare at the bottom of the skirt.  Small side opening that closes with snaps and a hook-eye at the waist.  Keep in mind this lovely dress must be slipped on over the head, so your measurements need to be a bit smaller than those of the dress.

NOTE:  This lovely dress will require your favorite vintage slip and would probably also require era-appropriate foundation garments (a longer corset or girdle that covers the hips).
