We line the front and back of the bodice with smooth taffeta and stitch in an extra-long back zipper. So this is one jumper that slips on without the usual struggle (comes in handy on gym class days!). Skirt has two sewn-in pleats, plus a pair of decorative buttons on the waistband. Fabric is a polyester/rayon blend that abhors wrinkles almost as much as you do. Machine wash. Imported.
