Summer Meadows Skirt
- Vintage 1970s menswear plaid Doubleknit
- Sage roses lace ruffle, soutache braid
- Dark Olive, sage, white
- Womens Large

Sage, white & green textured menswear plaid -- that's this vintage 1970s fabric of polyester double knit. It's plaid or dark olive green, white, sage, with a little rust thrown in fro complexity. This mini skirt falls just above the knee, with plenty of stretch. The ruffle is sage green lace fabric with woven roses, edges left raw. It's joined with exposed green & white serging, and attached to the skirt with sage soutache braid.

All topped off with a 2-1/4" wide dark olive waist band of stretchy microfiber spandex knit. The sides are double-stiched for strength, and the label sewn in the waist band.

There's a matching top from the waist band fabric and with the soutache braid embellishment, as shown on a TINY model for a runway show:

Vintage polyester fabric is just soooo BAAAD! But in my hands, it gets a cool new life again. I have to call this fabric upcycled for Etsy's search, even though it is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed. This fabric dates from the middle of the Doubleknit Explosion era, about 1966 - 1973. Yup - a (now) geezer had a sportscoat from it I'm sure!!
