Colorful 1970s 2-Piece Midriff Baring Maxi Skirt & Crop Top

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Fabulous and outrageous! This 2-piece ensemble is reminiscent of the sporty trend popular in the 1970s...think Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders and Cher's bare midriff all in one ensemble. Both pieces are a polyester jersey designed by 'Chateau du Tricot' (gotta love that name) and retailed at Isaacson's, a high end ladies' boutique located in Atlanta, GA for decades. The cuffs and lower part of the top are ribbed in bright green, yellow and orange. The maxi skirt fits snugly at waist and hips and then flares out in the same tri-colors. There is a minor and almost imperceptible 3/4" snag at the back of the skirt 17" from hemline...otherwise in excellent vintage condition.

Though both pieces are marked size 5/6, this outfit best fits a modern size 2 - 4. The fabric is stretchy and somewhat forgiving but will show anything worn underneath. In addition, The breasts fit under the ribbed part of the top which might make the fit difficult for a large bust. Not for the shy...that's for sure.
