1930s Gabardine Dress
Very smart looking 1930s dress in wool gabardine. The color is a cinnamon brown. The featured design element here are buttons. There are three button plackets, One down the front of this shirtmaker dress and one on each sleeve! Lots of gathered seams add a blousy fullness and the potential for lots of action. I'm reminded of Thirties safari movies set in the wilds of Africa. Lounging around the fire on canvas chairs drinking whiskey and alert to the growls of unseen beasts in the bush. But I digress, The shoulders are padded. Self belt with covered buckle. Maybe we should have mentioned this first, It's never ever been worn! Bust 34"-36", Waist 26" , Hips 36" Shoulder to shoulder is 16", Shoulder to waist 17" Waist to hem 29"
