In the Mood for Love

Be still, my beating heart! This is probably the most amazing "valentines" 30s gown I will ever offer in my shop.  Yes, that's right... this little beauty is made of a white cotton voile type fabric with cinnamon red hearts printed all over it!!!  If this fit me, I would never be letting it go, but alas, it's 'tres petite," (it just barely fit on "Hazel," the dress form's 35.5-26.6-36 figure) and therefore it is destined to be the dream frock of some other!

Oh that's so pretty - I love the back - such a contrast to the prim neckline at the front. Its fantastic!

Beth said...

Woo-woo!! Look at the back on that baby!

Miss Tami Lee said...

Oh my GOD! I want to start starving myself just to fit into that. Who needs food when I could be wearing a dress that amazing! I'm definitely saving these pictures to try and whip up my own Tami-sized version. What an amazing find!

Wow, can anything be cuter than that?

Isn't that scrumptious? I could see Harlow wearing it for a night on the town with Powell!

Florrie said...

I adore the cut out back!

Gorgeous dress. Oh, what a surprise when I saw the back of the dress, I'd never have guessed it would be like that after seeing the prim and proper front view.

WOW! What a stunner!

Debi said...

OMG. So beautiful! This actually looks very similar to a pattern I am using to make my own valentine's day dress (it's from 1934)!!!

Trixie said...

Oh it's so cute! The back is really unique!

I liked it from the first picture. But then I saw the back - and now I am in love!! Stunning!

Pink Flower said...

How gorgeous is the back of that dress?!

BaronessVonVintage said...

The back is divine, non? I agree that it sort of has two personalities: demure in front and sultry in back (avalon76: YES, Harlow should have worn such a thing on the town with Mr. P!!!)

Debi: I can't wait to see your dress!!! Are you using that "Manhattan Melodrama" pattern Lauren came out with a while back?

Miss Tami Lee: I agree: I need a Jill-sized one of these mamas!

Andrea said...

You are a temptress, and that dress is amazing! Alas, I have too much junk in my trunk to even hope to fit into it!

Penny Dreadful said...
