Ok, at this point I'm down to Smalls only so they are half off now. Measurements follow below.........
It's a cute new hippie top. It's got a peasant vibe to it. Must be those nice poofy sleeves and the great embroidery. But lemme start at the beginning.
This is black and is a lighter weight textured cotton. The texture has a stripe in it. It's not so light as to be sheer sheer but it's not a heavy cotton, either.
It starts with a really interesting neckline. The round is sort of squared off at the collar bones. The sleeves are a raglan style so they are inset just over the shoulder--front and back. The sleeves are about elbow length and they are gathered and banded at the bottoms.
I hope you can see how this is pieced. Makes for an interesting design, both front AND back. Plus, where the "skirty" part is pieced, it's then cut fuller so it's got a big wide flowy bottom. Note: Though the auction is for *BLACK* I have posted a shot of the top in white so you can better see the seaming and piecing which is harder to see on black. You are bidding on black, though.
I've saved the best for last. The EMBROIDERY! The embroidery on the set in pieces on either side of the drop shoulder front are florals including 60's embroidered daisies. THEN on the sleeves above the banded bottom there is more embroidery and that repeats the florals but then there are also a couple of embroidered birds. Sorry, there's a couple lady bugs too, but no bees :)
These are sized, are a junior cut, again a size small.
Measurements Please note I take measurements with my garments laid out flat; so double and then subtract your own "wiggle room".
Bust: 18" Because the sleeves are set in, I'm taking the measurement not at the top of the side seam, but rather where the piecing is done at the sides. It's about 4" down from the actual top of the side seam, but better reflects a truer bust measurement I believe.
This continues to widen and it measures 36" across the bottom front! so nice and full.
The sleeves are 21" and I took that measurement at the neckline down.
Length is 27"
