•Highlights: an unusual designer competitor's COPY of the iconic Serbin spiderback; versions of Serbin's design were made from the 1950s to the early 1980s...this competitor's piece I imagine is from the early 80s; shirtwaist w boob pockets; sweeping skirt with front inverted pleat; original sash included; rare size; a great in-era duplicate that's the exact same fabric as a Serbin and rear bodice constructed the exact same, too, but not priced like the known brand!

•Fabric(s): cotton blend

•Lined: no

•Closures: buttons

•Designer/Labels: Ilse M., Made in the USA - like Serbin's designs, these were also sold at I. Magnin and are the same quality and feel!
