Description

1-980-15-08139: Rustic Aztec ensemble

Three piece silk chiffon ensemble comprising of a blouse, skirt and camisole. The blouse is covered in a rustic Aztec print and is long-sleeved with a centre-front button closure beginning at the hem and continuing upwards to the high rounded neckline. The neckline has ruffles around the neck that tie into a bow at the centre-front of the neckline. In addition, the sleeves are gathered at the ends and have the same ruffles as the neckline. For the wool skirt, it bears the same Aztec print and hits just below the knee. It is synched at the waist with an elastic band and has a band of Aztec print going horizontally across the hem to create and border. Lastly, there is a simple spaghetti-strapped brown silk camisole visible underneath the blouse to add a little more coverage.
