"Oh, I can see us now, in our bathing dresses! You in a nice, rich navy, and me... stripes, perhaps." Mrs. Lovett, "Sweeney Todd"
This striking ensemble pairs our Cabaret Bustle Jacket with a delightful Walking Skirt. It provides an extremely flattering silhouette, while still being surprisingly comfortable to wear. The outfit is made from black and white striped cotton (widths of stripes may vary depending on availability) with optional accents of solid black rayon on the sleeves. The v-shaped trimming on the back, adds a dramatic flair while accentuating the waist. It buttons up the front with black buttons, has a V-neckline, along with a bustled back created by artful pleatwork at the sides.
The matching skirt features gracefully draped bias cut gathered ruffles trimmed in pleated black ribbon, closes with a zipper and button side closure, and measures approx. 40" from waist to hem. You are welcome to include a length from waist to desired lower hem for a customized fit. Shown here being worn with a white hooped underskirt for added fullness, which is offered separately if desired.
