Follow the Fleet Sailor Flour Sack Frock = Find of a Life Time
30s feedsack and floursack dresses come in so many different forms. Some are humble and sweet. Some are homely and homespun. Others are nothing short of fabulous. The most mind-blowingly awesome 1930s floursack dress I've EVER found, and that is staying in my personal collection forever if possible is a white and navy sailor dress. Yes, guys and dolls, this was made out of flour sacks by some amazing Depression-era dame, possibly after seeing Jean Harlow's sailor dress in George Hurrell's 1932 photo "Sailor Suit Girl" or maybe in honour of Bette Davis's famous ice cream photo OR even after seeing Follow the Fleet? Personally, I think it's from 1933, so I feel like Jean inspired this one. One way or another, I definitely know how lucky I was to have found this dress...and for a STEAL I tell you! I feel sorry for the vintage dealer I got it from, actually. She had no idea what she had here. Okay, I'm heading back out to enjoy the sunshine. Have a glorious weekend!!
