Laura Ashley 20s Gatsby style knitted ensemble which can be worn together or as separates, comprising a sleeveless top, longer length straight skirt and longer length cardigan jacket embellished with delicate forget-me-not blue floral embroidery. The top is unfitted with a scoop neckline and embroidered border around the hem; the skirt has an elasticated waist for a comfrotable fit and the cardigan jacket has a single hook/eye fastening with embroidery around the neckline and down the front edges.
NOTE: The skirt has a small tear to the back waistband which may need a few stitches but this minor flaw is concealed when worn with the top; otherwise the set is in great condition.

Customers are asked to bear in mind that vintage garment sizes bear little or no resemblance to contemporary sizes. Furthermore, current high street size labels are inconsistent, with M&S and Wallis being noted for their generous proportions while others come up on the small side.
Please always refer to the measurements provided in the item description rather than the garment label size, and note that any ‘best fit’ suggestion we make will be based on modern day sizing. By way of example, our own suggested standard size 12 dress has an underarm to underarm measurement of approximately 19" with a waist size of 30".
In order to best gauge the suitability of an item, you may find it useful to compare our stated measurements with those of one of your own garments which is a comfortable fit. Our garment measurements are taken with the item laid flat, and all sizes in our descriptions are approximate.
