Some call these 2 piece country western dress sets patio dresses, we call them versatile and adorable (wear them as separates, especially this amazing circle skirt!)
This set is made of a really cool gingham: it is a fancy twill weave instead of a regular weave, so it adds visual texture, especially up close!
The top of this features a squared neckline edged in gold and white braid trim in the front and back, it buttons up the back, and has interesting double puff sleeves. This has princess seaming in the front, and princess darts in the back.
The skirt is fantastic, with triple tucks at each side of the front and back, which manipulate the gorgeous full circle design.
It has a center back zipper, metal, by Serval.
Length from shoulder to hem 21"
38" around hem
Sleeve 12.5" long
1.5" wide waist band
24.5" long from bottom of waist band to hem
We acquired this with an H Bar C label sewn in it, however, it was not sewn in very well, so we removed it. This appears (to us) to be custom sewn. The fiber feels like a cotton or rayon, or maybe a blend of them both.
My aunt used to wear these matching sets when she went square dancing.
Condition: the only issue is that the elastic in the lower sleeve hems seem a bit loose to us, but, they would be comfortable this way, rather than too tight. This is in otherwise excellent condition, freshly laundered and ready to wear.
We particularly love this skirt, it is SO flattering they way they manipulated the tucks at the waistline. We've shown it with a vintage white peasant top to show it's versatility ( the blouse is being sold separately here at The Vintage Merchant: we do discount for multiple item purchase orders, and happily combine to reduce shipping expenses).
