Amazing antique 1900s 2pc cotton skirt and tunic blouse dress set featuring a very light faded brown print that resembles bird wings or falling leaves. I adore this set ~ she's incredibly romantic - and if she were a little bit roomier, she'd be staying in my closet.
She's styled with a 3 tiered ankle length skirt. Nipped high waistline with one hook/eye at center back. The tunic blouse is my favorite styled with ruched shoulders and sleeves with 3/4 length pleated hems with wide openings. Gathered double ruffles trim the neckline and extend down the center bust to waistline. She closes down the center with a hook/eye at neckline followed by 7 dainty round mother of pearl shank buttons and 5 flat MOP buttons with hooks/eyes at nipped waistband with two hooks and loops down center tunic blouse skirting. As you can see in the photos, the tunic adds an additional tier to the ensemble as you can never have too many. Truly a delightful set ~ she presents beautifully!
