This may be the best dress I've ever had OR seen! A lovely woman came in the shop today and brought a whole load of clothing that had belonged to her Mother, Mother-in-law and Aunt. There are some pretty great dresses but this one takes the grand price for cat-related novelty prints! Black and white leopard kittens playing with colorful balls on soft ivory crepe rayon, from the late 30s. Angular peaked hip pockets and flirty bows and cap sleeves on bodice. Quite possibly inspired by "Baby" from the classic film "Bringing Up Baby".
I'll have it on the site Monday (pic click to the 40s page so get ready to grab it!
