♥ Shirring at shoulder seam and long sleeves that taper to the wrist
♥ Insanely full swingy circle skirt falls in deep folds from fitted dropped waist
♥ Comes with original wide self fabric belt
♥ No zippers / just slips over the head - has elastic in the waist, but it has relaxed over time

Notes on the Designer: Rosemary Brantley began her career as a runway model in Dallas in the late 60's. She then attended Parsons School of Design in New York. When she graduated in 1973, she was named "Designer of the Year." She worked for Kaspar and companies in London and New York as a designer, illustrator, and merchandiser. In the late 1970s, she was named head designer of the Jaeger American Line, London. In 1980, Brantley moved to Los Angeles and co-founded her own sportswear company. She was also appointed founding Chair of the Fashion Department at Otis College of Art and Design. Under her leadership, the department grew to become one of largest and most influential fashion programs in the country, providing design talent to some of the country’s largest apparel companies. In 2005, Brantley was recognized for her significant contributions to the fashion industry by the LA Fashion Awards with their "Inspiration Award."
