Description

Sylvan Belle is having a little Rockabilly wingding going on this week. Check out my fun items!

This auction features a fabulous Squaw Blouse and Skirt set --- so named in less culturally aware times of the 1950s. Also known as a patio dress. Made of a beautiful cotton fabric that reminds me of what we used to call "crinkle gauze," but it is heaver...just gorgeous fabric. The dress is black, with a neckline of copper colored cotton, and the hem facing on the skirt is also copper colored.

The best feature: yards and yards of sparkling copper ric-rac and braid, and copper metallic embroidered black ribbon trim. This charming number will make some rockabilly filly the center of attention on the dance floor.
The long full and gatd skirt has three gatd tiers. It has a metal side zip, and fastens at the waistband with hook and eye closures. It is pictured with a crinoline underneath --- which is NOT included.

The top has a wide yoke that perches seductively on your shoulders. It is accented with two notches in front, and one in back. It is trimmed with more ric-rac and braid and trim. The sleeves are elbow length. It zips up the left side with a metal zipper.
