Hi all. Itâ€™s been a little while since I blogged, but rest assured I am BACK! Here are few things that I added to my Etsy shop last week for the 20s and 30s lovers. The first dress is stunning! The geometric shapes and fagoting are superb. The second dress is also lovely, and in a rare larger size.
I recently bought a beautiful red crepe and cream lace 1930s bias cut gown from SIB Vintage.Â I think it is gorgeous, and best of all – it fits me to a tee. It also has lovely red glass buttons which look great in contrast against the lace.
Just before this dress arrived, I was flicking through another of my fav bloggers pages (The Painted Woman) and came across an article about ‘Vintage afternoon wear’ and found that she had featured a photo from a 1933 Vogue showing a very similar dress. It has scalloped detailing in the lace bodice and a collar but is strikingly similar to my crimson beauty. I love when I can find an example of a similar item from the same time period…makes it all the more interesting and helps place the garment to a more exact time period.
