Two (2) piece outfit in this listing. Blouse shown is sold separately. Sometimes there is an event or way of thinking that influences fashion dramatically. Nothing could be better said that that of the womans zouave jacket from the Civil War era. Zouaves were actually a Moroccan volunteer units in the French army…

The Civil War (1861 – 1865)In general, the correct “profile” for the period featured a very full floor-length skirt (it would be shorter for very young ladies), and a closely-fitted bodice. The sleeves were often very full, and might have a bell shape or be very full at the sleeve head. The shoulder seam was typically dropped slightly down from the shoulder, and the waist was often just a bit above what we would consider a natural waistline.
I can't help but love the bodice and especially the 'jacket' with its sleeves.
