Vintage Late 1930s Flowers and Ribbons Pinafore Dress

An truly amazing and rare late 1930s dress!  Medium weight pink faille with a green flower and white ribbon novelty print.  Pinafore style with ruffles on the shoulders.  The skirt has a high, wide waistband and is semi-full and gathered with ruching.  The bucket pockets are trimmed with ruffles.  Side buttons.  Just adorable!

NOTE: Pink is a color that computer monitors show differently.  The skirt is a rich, muted true pink and perhaps not as bright pink as your computer shows.

 

DETAILS

Label:  none

Best fits:  S  (see measurements)

Circa:  Late 1930s / early 1940s

Condition:  Overall very good.   The dress shows light, normal wear.  The white scalloped trim shows a faint bit of age darkening (see photos).  Also, the dress appears to be homemade, so there are a few expected inconsistencies in the stitching, but nothing glaring.
