Once strictly 'underthings' and scarcely to be seen even by husbands, our own, less modest age with not turn at hair at the sight of this little skirt in the high street!
Made from the softest and finest cotton lawn - which may in turn show your own underthings, so be warned! - it falls in soft pleats from a fixed waist, which is fastened at the centre back with a button.
It has a pretty scalloped hem, and is embroidered for a good six inches above this, with flowers and twiggy sprays. There is a wide (1½ inch or so) lace insert at about the knee.
The fabric is very fine, and the skirt very old, but there are only two tiny repairs, which I have tried to photograph (not very successfully!); both at the back, just to the left and bottom of the rear slit. Waist measures approximately 27 inches (68 cms); length 27 inches (68 cms).
