This is a fabulous dress from the 1930s. The fabric is silky crepe with a colorful floral pattern. Massive puff-sleeves and very waisted cut. The front of the waist has button-holes that we supose were to tight the waist a bit more, but we don't know if it was made with a cord or with a piece of fabric same as the dress or with buttons. It closes on both sides with snap-buttons. Vertical seams from waist to bust and three vertical seams on the back of the collar, very typical from the 30s decade.
Note that the cuffs are not so narrow as they look like in the photos. The arms from our dummy are super skinny and we have 📍pined the cuffs to show fit.

Condition: Amazing condition for her age with signs of use, no holes, rips or stains. It only has a tiny damage on the fabric of collar (view photo). The snap buttons from one side are missing, it needs new ones. We've made a little restoration on the armpits seams and side seams. The thread was easily breakable there and we've made a reinforcement sewing. Bottom hem is not sewn.
