Vintage Sailor Set, Edwardian style, 70's 80's cotton blouse and skirt.
The styling reeks of turn of the century, Edwardian, Lawn Party. Croquet anyone? It is truly lovely. I did not buy it originally, I got it in the early 90's, but think it's much older than that. Seems like a Laura Ashley style copy of the era.
The blouse is not fitted, with a lovely, blue and white striped modesty piece and trim on the short sleeves. Buttons down the back with a tie in front. The skirt is long, on me it is longer than tea length. The front of the waist band is flat, the back is wide elastic. The label says it is a small, Pier 1 clothing collection, made in India. All cotton.
The blouse / top is in excellent condition, I see no problems. The skirt has one, light discoloration on the front (pictured) and a couple very small spots. I have not tried to remove them, I ever noticed them when I wore it. Since it is cotton, I imagine a light bleach wash would remove it. The top is exquisite and would look fabulous with jeans or anything else.
Even though the tag states small, it really isn't. Bust 41 inches, shoulder to hem 22 & 1/2 inches. Skirt waist 26 inches to 31 inches, length 35 inches.
There is nothing more cheery than a sailor outfit. Classic happiness.
