1970s Fantastic Bill Gibb Ensemble
I love Bill Gibb and this ensemble is terrific! It has that romantic Victorian hippie feel that the best of his clothes have. It is two separate pieces, both done in a light polished cotton.The fabric has an ombre striping in light pastels - soft green, pink and cream. Insets of open work lace run down the skirt and the front of the top. The skirt is a masterpiece of pleat and flat work done to give interest but without adding excessive volume. All the edges are finished with grosgrain and the entire outfit is beautifully made. I love the wide kimono inspired sleeves. Wear these together or as separates. Bill Gibb is a highly collectible label and his pieces are getting exceedingly hard to find. Both pieces are in excellent, unworn condition
Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: 22" flat across the back from side seam to side seam, and continuing to bottom hem
Total length: 27" from mid neck at the back to bottom hem
Sleeves: 24" from shoulder seam to longest point
Waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam
Total length: 31" from waist seam to bottom hem
Note the color is more of a pale pastel combination then what is photoed. The label is the best representation. It presents far softer in overall color then pictured. The base of the fabric is a creamy white with no yellow undertones.
Both pieces are fully lined in cream silky rayon. The top closes with a row of buttons at the front and can be worn as a light jacket or as a top, while the skirt closes with a side painted metal zipper and hook and eye combo. The belt that is with it does not appear to me to be the original but will be sent with it as found as it works.
