Ethnic African Size: S orange / blue / white Kitenge top and skirt

£29.99

Product description

Vibrant genuine ethnic Kitenge smock top and long skirt made in cotton with a striking orange, navy, black and white block print pattern. The inside of the skirt waist shows "Veritable Wax". The smock top has a lightly padded neck line woven in orange and white tape. The short flared sleeves are also trimmed with the orange tape. Back and front are identical and armhole to armhole measures 17" / 43cm which we estimate would make approximately a size 8. The long skirt has an elasticated waist, the left hand side seam has a 14" / 35cm kick split and on the front close to that seam there are 2 x deep pleats that are edged with the orange tape and stitched down to the start of the kick split leaving them free to fan out as you walk.
It has no labels but was made using a sewing machine and the very wide side seam allowances indicate that they were probably made in one large size and then adjusted to fit. The skirt could be let out but not the top. Actual garment measurements are:- TOP Bust 34"/86cm Shoulder to hem length 27" / 69cm Hemline 64" /162cm Across shoulders 13.5" /34cm Outer sleeve 11" / 28cm. SKIRT Waist 28" to 36" / 71cm to 92cm Hips 42" / 106cm Length 36" / 92cm.

In very good condition, the fabric still has a newness to it and there is no fading, this type of fabric should be washed separately.
