Mama + Baby Panda Print Dress and Romper Set | M
Era: late 1930s
Approx. size: dress is M-M/L with a shorter bodice, baby romper suits 6mo-1yr (approx.)

simple + utterly charming homemade pieces in one of the best novelty prints I’ve seen: romping pandas! The dress with yoked, lightly gathered bodice and modified a-line skirt, the baby romper with pleating, puff sleeves and a pocket.
closure: dress snaps at the side and has two buttons at neck, romper snaps at back neck and between legs.
label: none, homemade
condition: good. wearable, clean, and so charming. Fade and light wear throughout. Some scattered marks, present but not overt. Tear near the dress neckline (likely button stress) was patched with hem allowance by a previous owner. dress armholes were handfinished in a mis-matched thread which makes me wonder if it used to have sleeves. a very sweet pair, priced with condition in mind and in the hopes this passes quickly to another loving mama + baby!
