Ceil Chapman’s great talent for handling fabric in an unusual and intricate manner with figure-making results is clearly visible in the line of this supple sheath. Appearing to be extensions of the front plastron, loose drapery softly crisscrosses the midsection and is caught into the side seams above and below the waistline. The charming boat neck curves wide and away to a minimum of shoulder covering. Darts smoothly shape the zippered back; small pleats are released for ease in the skirt front. Released as NA-2142 in the Diminutive size. Also issued with a different envelope but same number.
