Island Railroad Mini Skirt
- Vintage brown chevron stripe Doubleknit
- Mod print ruffle
- Reddish Rust Brown White
- Womens XS SMALL or MEDIUM
- 1970's Vintage virgin fabric

Vintage polyester fabric is just soooo BAAAD! But in my hands, it gets a cool new life again. Some might call this skirt recycled or upcycled, except the fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed.

A warm reddish brown and white print if chevron V stripes-- that's this vintage polyester double knit fabric. This mini skirt falls just at the knee, with plenty of stretch, and a little texture.

The ruffle is reddish brown, ombre in some areas, with little white squares in staggered rows. The single-knit polyester shirting in the ruffle is also vintage -- the ombre is the areas that have faded a little . I think that gives interest to it. It's joined to the skirt with exposed white serging, as well as edged with white for a crisp look. There's a little bow of the ruffle -- pinned, so you can put it where you wish.

All topped off with a 2-1/2" wide dark brown waist band of very soft cotton knit. The sides are double-stiched for strength, the insides finished with yesteryear tailoring, and the label sewn in the waist band.

All vintage fabrics have been laundered prior to construction and of course, smoke-free!!
