Vintage 1960s Mini Dress with Pants Black Crochet Raffia Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a fabulous 1960s era coordinated set consisting of a mini-dress with pants.  The set is made with an open weaved crochet knit using, I believe, a synthetic “raffia”, which simulates a straw normally used to weave hats or baskets.  The dress has a thin collar and a three button closure like a polo shirt.  It has sleeves that flare out from the elbow to the cuff.  The pants have an elasticized waist and the legs flare out to a bell-bottom.  Both pieces are unlined and because of the open weave, are quite revealing.  I’ve posed the set with a brass ring belt, but the belt is not included with the outfit.

Label: No label, probably custom made

Color:  Black

Sizing:  No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking into account the style of the set and that there is some slight stretch to the crochet:


Shoulders:  15” across, from one shoulder sleeve seam to the other

Sleeves:  25” long from the shoulder sleeve seam

Sleeve inseam:  18”

Bust:  36” around

Waist:  34” around, but meant to be cinched

Hips:  38” around

Length:  35”


Waist:  20” around unstretched - stretches out to 35” maximum

Length:  41” measured flat

Leg inseam:  31” long

Condition:  It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odour.  This set looks to have seen little use and has been well cared for over the years.

This is a great outfit - each piece could be used separately, but together, they make a perfect 60s statement.  Sexy black crochet!
