This lovely 1950’s full skirt and blouse combo from Spadea and Toni Owen is perfect for day or evening wear. Toni Owen was one of the best known designers of American sportswear in the 40s and 50s; Vogue magazine named her as one of America’s top twelve designers and she was awarded a coveted Coty award in 1949! “For double duty informality Toni Owen designed this simple tailored outfit… a velvet skirt topped by a wool jersey blouse. The blouse interest centers around the contrasting yoke and sleeve bands; the skirt swings in easy fullness from a number of soft pleats.”
