Kelly Green 1930’s Dress

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

I’m on a dress kick this week, so bear with me. Today we have this amazing 1930’s dress, in my favorite color, with lots of lovely details – the faux jacket (fauxlero?) with inset “blouse” in a slightly off (but complimentary) shade of green with a blossom print, contrast cuffs, Art Deco belt buckle, pleating on the front and back of the skirt, and a little “knot” at the back of the neck. So charming, this level of detail is fantastic, but doesn’t overwhelm. Can someone replicate this for me?

The seller has this listed as a 1920’s dress, but I would argue that this is a late 1930’s style, given the higher waist and the type of detailing. Thoughts?

  1. Have you posted it on Pinterest yet? I’m sure someone will have an idea of how to tackle it. If you don’t have an account, I can do it for you. It’s such a perfect color!

  2. I have a lady who makes reproductions for me, but I think the biggest issue would be finding the right fabrics.
