Chickadee Blouse & Skirt

$15.00 | Sizes 2T-8

Perfect for school pictures or trips to the museum, the long-sleeved Chickadee Blouse has a rounded, off-set collar and an asymmetrical front pleat that complement the lines on the faux-wrap Chickadee Skirt. The top of the Blouse is lined and has a split opening at the left front neckline that is secured by a single button. The Skirt is fully lined (with no hemming!) and features buttonhole elastic in the back waistband to add flexibility in fitting.
