Wonderful 1930s cotton piqué beach dress with a deco diamond pattern throughout. The bodice on this piece is marvelously ruched and finished with voluminous puffed sleeves. The skirt is exceptionally voluminous and has wonderful drape due to it being cut on the bias. Has sweet pleated trim at the cuffs, neckline and hem. Zips up one side with a rare Kover Zip. 

Excellent condition. There are a few small light marks in the skirt that get lost in the drape. The inside of the bodice is lined in rayon, which has many tears and repairs, but this does not show or affect wear whatsoever. Presents beautifully.
