Skirt A has the traditional five gores and two widths in back for train length. The full overskirt is pulled up in the center back and has four sashes hanging down the back.
Skirt B has the five gore front and a double width back, pleated at the side back for a "pouf." The front apron is also pleated on the sides for gentle swags. On both skirts, the placket is in the center back seam. An optional pocket is in the right side seam.
