1930s House Dresses, Fabrics, Patterns
Although 1930s house dresses were generally more simple than most thirties day and evening dresses, the day-to-day clothing of the average woman followed the same general fit and shape as most 1930’s women’s clothing: Puff or fluttery caplet sleeves; wide collars with lace, ruffles, or embroidery; a snug, high waist; a skirt fitted through the hips, gently flaring from mid-hip to the mid-calf hemline. A wrap dress (often reversible), a “Hooverette”, became the most popular.
