Vintage 50s/60s Eyeful Embroidered Black Satin Can Can Petticoat Crinoline S

Inspired by a can can dancer's ruffled-lined costume, this vintage late 50s or early 1960s black nylon satin crinoline or petticoat from Eyeful is so beautiful—and so substantial--you'll likely be tempted to wear it as a skirt.

Embroidered all over with pink, white, and green dogwood blossoms, it has 3 concealed tulle flounces at the hem, in pink, white, and green to match the embroidery. The black satin is a heavier weight than in most crinolines, and so more opague as well.

The crinoline is cut in two pieces, with one pinked and one overlock-stitched seam. It has a 7/8" waistband and closes with a side metal zipper.

Label reads "Eye-ful 26" with a copyright symbol; fabric tag reads "Nylon", and care tag instructs "Hand Wash in Lux". Eyeful made lingerie and sleepwear in the 50s and 60s, and its name was perhaps a tongue-in-cheek reference to the 1940s girlie magazine Eyeful, which featured pinup girls like Bettie Page in sensational—but scant—underthings.

Measuring waist 26", hips 38", and length 29", this vintage crinoline or petticoat is in excellent condition with no flaws to note.
