ROADRUNNER STARS - Skirt with Lacy Ruffle --
Vintage fabric virgin acrylic
Gray & Black
Women's size Small to 2XL Plus

Roadrunners? ROADRUNNERS!!! These predatory cuties race around this skirt, creating diagonal columns in black and gray knit. Yeah, I know swallows are the current punk stereotype, but you're different, right? The black and gray ruffle with its tiny stars are what Coyote sees at night, as he tries to avoid the daylight-loving Roadrunner. The 4" see-thru bottom ruffle is attached to the skirt with exposed black and gray serging, as well as edged in the same two-tone serging.

All topped off with a 3" wide black waist band of soft stretchy cotton. The sides of the skirt are double stitched, the waistband attached with flexible serging.

I'd call this skirt reconstructed or upcycled, except the main fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed.

Vintage polyester (or acrylic) fabric is just soooo BAAAD! I rescued this virgin fabric from my secret source, where they have some of the most 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!

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