As most of you know, my favourite era is the 1930s, so this week I have scoured Etsy for 30s items that I like and posted them here for you all. From gowns to shoes and accessories, from sewing patterns to homewares. Some of these items are from a few of my fav fellow Etsy sellers such as Top Tottie Vintage , eStitches , SIB Vintage and Raleigh Vintage. Enjoy!

Today it’s all about dresses – 1930s dresses to be specific, from some of my favourite Etsy sellers. Mid 30s is the era I love most but these dresses span the entire decade. If I was lucky enough to win the lotto (and if these dresses were in my size) – I would probably snap them all up!
As my friends know, I’m a big fan of vintage silk-velvet. There really seems to be no modern equivalent to it’s luxurious softness or the way it falls in a bias cut gown so I have included a beautiful burgundy example here. I also adore 30s knitted dresses and sets and I especially love the argyle sweater and skirt set that comes with a matching hat shown below from Top Tottie Vintage. So cute…but alas, too small for me.
All these dresses were currently for sale when I submitted this on Dec 11 so if you are interested in these items, just click on the pics to take you there. Enjoy, and thanks to all these wonderful sellers for always putting such quality vintage items in their stores.
