Vintage 1930s Hint of Red Summer Dress

Raleigh Vintage

This simple 30s dress has great details!  Lightweight, super-soft rayon blend (either with cotton or linen) in a soft, natural white.  The silhouette is simple with a slightly loose bodice and straight skirt.  There is red accent stitching on the shoulders.  The front of the bodice slightly and has large (heavy) mother-of-pearl buttons.  This lovely dress slips on over the head with no additional openings, so your measurements need to be slightly smaller than those of the dress.  It will also require your favorite vintage slip or camisole as the bodice has a peek-a-boo front.
