Dress Worn by Shirley Temple on Her Trip Across America in 1938

Lot Number: 
Of fine sheer silk with geometric pattern in red, grey and blue, the high-waisted dress has richly-detailed smocking on the front and back bodice, which is repeated on the edges of the unusually-constructed sleeves and as trim on the two sack-shaped pockets. The batiste Peter Pan collar is edged in lace and enhanced with a braided dangle of the silk fabric, and there is a matching wide sash. The dress was worn by Shirley Temple during her auto trip across America in 1938, with a visit to Washington D.C.
