PURPLE LIME FLOWER POWER Mini Skirt
-- Orange with purple flowers
-- Lime green knife-pleat ruffle
-- Custom Size XS Sm Med
-- Large XL XXL priced higher

This Pop Art Flower print just screams 60's Peace and 70's Pop! Purple and White Mod flowers jump out of their pumpkin orange background. With the chartreuse centers, they are a cacophony of opposites. So I just made the riot worse by adding a lime green waistband, and a long sheer ruffle of permanently pleated lime chiffon, with serged edges. I didn't like the serging look where this ruffle joined the skirt, so I sewed a narrow black grosgrain ribbon over it. Wow! Now this skirt is truly audacious!

The 4" bottom pleated and gathered ruffle is slightly sheer, but the skirt is long enough to cover to goods. The 2-1/2" wide waist band of soft stretchy-yet-tight cotton is attached with flexible serging, and the sides of the skirt are double stitched for durability.

Vintage polyester fabric can be so intense! I rescued this virgin fabric from my secret source, where they have some of the most amazing & gawd-awful fabrics, 30-40 years old, waiting for me to find and fall in love with. This skirt fabric dates from the 1970s sometime, when they made some knits in what I maintain was an LSD haze! I haven't tested it, but I expect this skirt is Black Light Positive.

I have just enough fabric for 2 small, or one Large XL or XXL, hence the extra charge for the larger sizes
