e r a : late 20s
f a b r i c : cotton
c o l o r : purple and white
f a s t e n e r s : buttons, half belt
d e s i g n e r : fabric by Indian Head Cloth
d e t a i l s : Fabulous and rare 1920s purple and white Indian Head fabric workwear dress. I did quite a bit of research on this dress - it was part of a buy from a variety store that closed down in the late 20s. Indian Head is a fabric company with an interesting and long history. In the 20s they were making about 12 colors of fabric - including this lavender shade - and it was used for everything from table cloth to clothing. The tag shows the phone number (4 digits) which was how phone numbers were then! It points to Chicago, where the variety store was located in the 20s. I haven't had any success finding this particular style in a catalog, but I'm still looking! It is double breasted with celluloid buttons up the front, a contrasting white collar and white cuffs on the short sleeves. Little pocket details on the chest and hip with a back half belt.
c o n d i t i o n : Excellent dead stock condition with 1 small pinhole
s i z i n g : This should fit a modern small to medium

Thanks for looking!
NEED TO KNOW:
✦ MOST sales are considered final. Returns can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis if there is a significant error in the listing. Time is spent to give accurate measurements on each item, so I unfortunately can not offer returns for items that do not fit. TERRASITA also can not accept returns on undergarments, bathing-suits, or items from the 1920's or earlier due to their fragile nature. Additional absolutely no returns or exchanges on Layaway items.
✦ Vintage clothing is pre-worn and pre-loved and as a result some pieces may show signs of wear or use. I carefully inspect each item and disclose any signs of wear in our detailed descriptions.
✦ If you have any questions about fit, color, or need any additional photos, please don't hesitate to ask questions before you decide to purchase. I want you to be happy with your item!
✦ SIZING - Vintage clothing sizing does not reflect modern standards. When determining size, make sure you account for enough room to move comfortably. Additionally, vintage clothing is more fragile and should be worn with this in mind. Occasionally there are seam allowances or darts that can be removed, as well as tailors that can alter a vintage item to fit your particular shape.
When determining size I recommend measuring the following:
HIPS: measure around the fullest part of your hips.
BUST: measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.
WAIST: measure around the smallest point of your natural waistline.
SHOULDER TO WAIST: measure from the very top of your shoulder - where the seam would lie, down the front, over the bust, to your waistline.
LENGTH: measure from the top of your shoulder, down the front, and to the point where the hem would be. Inseam measurements for pants would be measured from the inside of the leg at the very top of the groin, down to the hem.
✦ SHOE SIZING - I tale actual measurements inside the shoe from toe to heel, as well as width measurements inside the shoe as accurately as possible.
