This is a lovely, summery skirt in a print that modern designers haven't yet got around to copying! On a creamy white ground are stylised images of keys, crowns and flowers in jewel-bright colours - emerald, gold, purple and red - the whole having an Aztec-y effect: simply stunning!
The skirt has been lovingly hand made, and fastens with a zip and two hooks at the centre back; however, the hooks have been covered with a button, so it looks as though this is used for closure (possibly the maker couldn't do buttonholes!)
It's very full skirted and has a wide waistband - nearly two incehs - to emphasise your waist. There is no hem to speak of, though I don't believe this has been taken down, it was made this wasy.
This garment is in good vintage condition. with no marks, rips, stains or tears; there is some slight fading of the fabric although this does not show in wear.
Approximate measurements are: waist 30 ½ ins/77.5 cms; length (from centre back below waistband) 29 ¼ ins/74.5 cms; circumference (hard to measure, as it's so full) 140 ins/277 cms.
