This sweet vintage circle skirt from Arizona is composed of three tiers of comfortable cotton in a black and white novelty print inspired by Native American motifs.
Motifs include fish hooks, owls, some birds and bugs and other interesting characters, along with abstracted geometric designs.
These tiered skirts are sometimes referred to as prairie skirts, western skirts, and patio skirts. They look fantastic with crinoline petticoats underneath (we had ours loaned out when we shot this the other day), sorry we don't have a photo with them to show you.
The sweep on this is incredible, it is a massive 280", which is nearly 24 FEET, or, nearly 8 YARDS!!
With 2" extended waist band underneath the end of the waistband, which means, if you are a patient seamstress, or if you know one, they could open up the tab and shuffle over the gathers to get another 1.5 to 2" of waistline out of this.
Waistband 2" wide
28.25" long from bottom of waist band to hem
This has a side zip, metal, by Conmar as well as 3 metal snaps.
280". yep. we couldn't believe it, either, so we re-measured to be certain.
Condition: this looks like the waist band closures have been adjusted a time or two, this is disguised well with the busy
print. Also, to our eyes, this have a very, very slight overall fade, which we love. Otherwise, this is in outstanding shape.
Freshly laundered and ready to wear.
We love these skirts worn with peasant tops (the one shown with this is available now, too, in our shop here. We're happy to combine to reduce shipping! ) especially, and cowboy boots or pointy flats. This is a terrific style choice for rockabilly weekenders, like Nashville Boogie and Viva Las Vegas.
This is from a woman who loved to travel; she purchased four of these tiered skirts when she visited Arizona in the 40s. Two have sold already, we have this and one other still available (the other one was shortened at some point in time, though).
