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
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
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!
