The top has interesting details – a fold-over neckline and ruching at the bottoms of the 3/4 sleeves. Naturally, there is a zipper at the waist which will help you to squirm into it. Of course Stella, bless her svelte little self, doesn’t have any trouble.
The skirt, in an Autumn hue, is made of a slinky fabric that swishes nicely. The print is halfway between atomic and abstract – one of those mid-century modern things that was beginning to happen post-WWII.
Very simple, with timeless lines and minimal detail. A covered, tailored belt with a slide buckle finishes it all off. As beautiful and interesting as some of the fussier garments were, the elegant pieces are the true gems . . . . . . . . .
