Let's Celebrate the 30's and 40's this week

What a glamorous time it was........rich fabrics, interesting construction, attention to detail..........that just don't make stuff like this anymore.

Black Linen 1930's dress from Cartwright Designed by Martha Gale. It has more than 100 buttons on it. And an early metal side zipper.



1940s Blood Red Rayon Crepe dress with the most interesting peek a boo or Keyhole neckline. And a shirred tummy panel. No makers label.



Pure Silk 1940s Rembrandt Dress with fabulous side drape.


OOAK Slipper satin strapless evening gown with crumb catcher and cummerbund and appliqued net overskirt.....also has a sweet little shoulder cape.


Another OOAK Slipper Satin gown. This one has a wonderful off shoulder Bertha Collar and luscious tiered skirt.
