Vintage Black Woven Copper Lurex Ethnic Skirt with Lime & Teal XS S

The fabric of this skirt is beautifully woven black ground with copper-toned lurex, while the upper half has lime green design elements woven into it, and the bottom half has rows of a rich turquoise-y-teal woven into it.

This feels like a thick cotton (except for the lurex threads); it is made of 3 panels of 36" wide fabric, with the selvage edges used as the seam finishes.

There are no fiber or maker labels, leading us to believe this was custom sewn; the use of the 7" metal Crown zipper dates it at the early 1950s, if not before; however the pleated waist is more indicative of late 1950s to early 1960s design elements.

The skirt is pleated around the top and set into a waistband.

It is finished as a 24.5" waist, however there is an additional 4" along the inside of the waist band which COULD be let out if all the pleats were re-fitted, if one were inclined to do so.

The waistband is not quite 1.5" wide, and the skirt is 28" from the bottom of the waistband to the hem, which is has an incredible 96" sweep.

This would be super cute with black tights, boots, and layers of cozy sweaters; perfect fall-into-winter wardrobe classic.

We show this with a very small crinoline underskirt which is not included.
