The roles of western women in the early 20th century were rapidly changing and their fashion sense was changing with the times. These modern women were on the move and their closed had to move with them.
No more the starched, stayed and bustled shapes of their Victorian mothers but a new freer and more liberating dress appeared in their wardrobe closet.
This charming two piece dress is just the thing to wear for a shopping trip to the antique mall or to a rally for your favorite feminist cause.
Top it of with a delightful summer straw boater hat, self trimmed in the dress fabric and you will surely be the hit of any event.
This two-piece cotton dress is fully lined and all seams are finished. There are no stays and no need for a bustle.
The blouse measures 36 inches in the bust, but will accommodate a couple of inches more. The blouse waist is 27 inches.
The skirt waist is 26 inches. The skirt front waist to hem measures
39 inches. This is a street length skirt with no train.
This dress and hat ensemble is priced at a very affordable $450.00 USD plus shipping and handling.
