Both bodices are snug fitting with the waistline seam seam falling 1-1/4" above the natural waistline. A 1" tuck near the bottom of the softly pleated skirt encloses the raw edge and adds weight to the hem.

The front and back of the loose-fitting blouse gather into a stand-up collar with a neckline slit in the front seam. Full sleeves with small pleats at the dropped shoulder are gathered into buttoned cuffs. The waist-bag is tied or hooked at the waist. Designs and directions for appliqued decorations are provided.
