Peaches N Twigs Skirt
-- Peach Plaid Vintage polyester Doubleknit
-- 1970s Peach Orange Brown & Rust Ruffle
-- Sparkly ruffle
-- X Large Womens skirt
-- American size 14 - 16

This semi-sheer plaid of virgin vintage doubleknit is yummy shades of Peach, White and Butterscotch. Yes, it's doubleknit polyester, but it's lightweight and thin, so it will need a slip. Clear-sequined stripes sparkle on the wide 6" ruffle, amidst the 1970s colors leaves and twigs. Upcycled vintage curtains, I believe. Bone lace attaches the ruffle to the skirt and edges it, with a frothy and flirty border above it.

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

==> I have more of this fabric and ruffle, if you'd like a different size.

I'd call this skirt reconstructed or upcycled, except the main fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed. This fabric dates from the middle of the Doubleknit Explosion era, about 1966 - 1973. Someone's granny wore an elastic-waist pantsuit of this fabric to church one spring, I'm sure!
