Here is a classic autumn-into-winter skirt in a traditional herringbone weave in a versatile shade of sandy tan and cream.
In the 1970s, gaucho pants were the rage, and often skirts were made with deep pleats like this in the front to give that sporty gaucho look.
Made in heathered shades of off-white, oatmeal-ivory and light dove gray, this has a narrow waistband (1.25" wide) with belt loops at the front and back, a double pleat at the center front, and angled side pockets.
Laid flat this measures:
12.5" at the waist (for an approximate 24-25" waist),
~ 20" at the hip (~ 40" hip)and
26.75" long from top of the waistband to hem.
This has a 9" center back zipper, Talon, metal pull, plastic teeth. This also has back darts from the waist for a nice, smooth, flattering fit. The seams are serge finished.
This is labeled "RTII" "Division of Russ Togs, Inc". It does have a dry clean only label, but no fiber label; it is wool, possibly a wool blend (no fiber label).
The belt is 5/8" wide, and has a 6 on the underside; it is vinyl with a bronze finish and does show a bit of wear along it's edges. (Pricing is for skirt, not the belt, we're sending the belt along though, since we acquired them together.)
This is very cute, and in excellent, completely wearable condition with no flaws.
These were super popular office wear: often worn with boots, a turtleneck, scarf at the neck and short, cropped jacket and or vest.
