RARE Late 1940s Full Skirt with Peaked Corset Waist and Floral Print


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s skirt is so special, a homemade piece in a style that looks like it was ripped from the pages of a postwar spring Vogue. This fabulous piece is made of a cotton with a subtle pressed texture that resembles bubble wrap. The print is brilliant, fuchsia-pink and burgundy with warm yellow and cooler greens.The corset waistband is brilliant fuchsia, and laces with olive green piping. The skirt looks great with or without a crinoline.

      This skirt has been carefully hand laundered and pressed. It is entirely bright and sturdy, and would be listed as very good if not for two flaws. The first is the notable one, which I've treated to the best of my ability. Someone had spilled blue ink on the front, and I treated it and managed to lighten it several shades - you can see it best in photos #3 and #5 - while this at the center front, due to the swirling style of the print it thankfully does not stand out. There is another small, rust colored stain at the lower right side, about 1" long, in a narrow dash. I interfaced a 1/4" cut on the back of the skirt. This has been priced down significantly with flaws in mind.
