Adorable vintage 1930s bias cut cotton dress in blue and white pattern of squares and a tiny floral print with white lace trim. Empire bodice, very light weight and semi-sheer with gathered sleeves. No openings, slips on over the head. This can be worn as a day dress or a nightgown. It is in excellent condition apart from a few spots to the lace trim, see left side of last photo.
Made by Best & Co. New York. Vintage tag size 14. However, please note this is a very small dress. It is shown on a modern US size 0 dress form and was very “form fitting.” Please refer to the measurements listed below, taken while laying flat and doubled where appropriate.
