This black cotton pintucked and lace 1960s dancing skirt and top is a darling set which can obviously be split up--that top would be great with jeans, or put a little white tee with the skirt--exquisitely made in top quality black cotton with lots of cotton lace. The whole skirt and the bodice of the top are lined in pink cotton--it was sewn in by hand. The skirt is pretty heavy because it's a full semicircle and it demands that you twirl in it. The top is quite fitted and has a concealed side zip Again, no care or size labels, but see below.
Measurements: Top, bust 36", waist 30", length 22", shoulder 16". Skirt, waist 25", length 26"
