Vintage 1930s Floral Feedsack and Lace Day Dress

A fun and rare example of a Depression Era feedsack dress.  Lightweight, brightly colored floral cotton.  Eyelet lace trim.  Slightly puffed, short sleeves.  Simple silhouette.  Hip pockets.  Unlined.  Slips on over the head with no additional openings.  
NOTE:  the dress was clipped to fit the dress form, except for the last two photos.  We think this dress would also look great worn loose and oversized as well as fitted.
