Incredible 1950s Rainbow Striped Silk Skirt with Ultra High Waist


  • Product Description

      A stunning and colorful vintage 1950s skirt made of scarf weight silk. The brilliantly banded material is pleated perfectly into a high waist that covers the ribcage. The top, then, is made of of the black bars, and below the natural waist, the skirt opens to expose the rainbow stripes that make it amazing - mustard and lilac, turquoise and fuchsia and coral.  The waistband area is reinforced with net, to prevent strain. The piece closes on the side with a sturdy metal zipper. 


      Ribcage: 29"
      Waist: 26"
      Hips: 60"
      Length: 32.5" (5" is above the waist. It is 27.5" from natural waist to hem)

      Label: None Present, Homemade
      Material: Fine Silk
      Condition: Good plus

      This skirt is clean and ready to wear.I've hand stitched down 1" of pleating that had pulled out, and one single pleat shows some minor strain. At the back above the hem, a single thread is pulled out of registry slightly. The right side seam is largely hand sewn. There are some small smudges to the lower back side by the right side seam, and a cluster of tiny pinholes towards the front near the right side seam. These are hidden in the folds when worn. A really striking piece.
