A NOTE ON STYLE: These three matching pieces were found together. The blouse and one of the skirts likely had a matching pair of shorts/capris to wear with it (similar to the style in photo #8). However, two open-front skirts were found instead of a skirt and shorts/capris. This is exciting as it lends to many options for the buyer!
Included in the purchase is a modern Vogue reproduction pattern for shorts/capris in a coordinating style and size. Among the possibilities include: (1) making both skirts into one skirt, (2) using one of the skirts as fabric to make shorts/capris from the sewing pattern, or (3) making both skirts into one skirt which buttons up the front to reveal a custom pair of shorts/capris made in a coordinating color using the sewing pattern.
It is left up to the buyer to decide what will become of this fabulous set, and with the sewing pattern and additional fabric from the second skirt, you're able to have a pair of custom shorts/capris made to your exact measurements!

Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! There is a small bit of color fade on the back left side of the blouse toward the hem (see last photo), but it wouldn't be seen as it would be tucked into the skirt/shorts/capris.
