Superb 1950s more-than-a-full-circle skirt and top set in a soft cotton crepe. Black with pink and sparkly metallic silver details. Slip-on top has three-quarter kimono sleeves and an open-collar V-neck. Passementerie trim at bodice and cuffs. Wear it tucked, loose, or knotted at the midriff (if you dare). Tiered skirt is wonderfully twirly and surprisingly flattering. Waistband is reinforced with a strong binding material on the interior. Tiny metal Talon side zip with button at waist. This ethnic-influenced set is so versatile! The skirt plus a refined, slim top and heels becomes formal. The top with jeans and flats goes casual. Shown with and without a full crinoline, not included.
