Hi.  My name is Ruth, and I'm a hoarder.

I'm beginning to poke at the concept of downsizing, and need some help.
I collect pretty things and books, mostly.  
We used to have a decent collection of dress-up clothes in a trunk when my daughters were young.  But I continued to add to it after they were grown.  The grandchildren don't find this entertaining, so I'm trying to find other homes for some of 'my pretties.'

Can you be tempted?

I can let these two items go to a good home, any offer accepted if it includes shipping costs.

Both items are foreign made and lack any tags on material or sizing.  So I'll take any measurements you think might be relevant.
The tunic is 45" in length and measured at armpit is 36" around.  Not that a 36" bust would fit; probably couldn't pull the garment into place.
The jacket is probably silk and the shoulder measurement from arm seams is 15" across.  The underarm length of sleeve is 13".  It might be meant to be a 3/4 sleeve.

Both child-sized or very very small adult.

Thank you Pearl, for switching the orientation of the pics.

Just adding that both garments are probably silk and both are lined with cotton.  Exteriors both have a slight sheen.
