ROADRUNNER DOTS - mini Skirt with Chiffon Ruffle
- Brown Tan White
- Choose Womens XS S or M
- Vintage virgin fabric

Roadrunners? ROADRUNNERS!!! Predatory cuties race around this skirt, creating diagonal columns in brown and tan knit. Yeah, I know swallows are the current punk stereotype, but you're different, right? The spotted brown, tan and white ruffle with its Eggs? Eyes? are what Coyote imagines he sees at night, as he tries to avoid the daylight-loving Roadrunner. The 4" chiffon bottom ruffle is attached to the skirt with exposed tan and brown serging, as well as edged in the same two-tone serging.

Lots of texture in this knit fabric!

All topped off with a 2-1/2" wide chestnut brown 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 acrylic) fabric is just soooo AWFUL! I rescued this virgin fabric from my secret source, where they have some of the most ridiculous 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!

THIS LISTING IS FOR A SKIRT 2" SHORTER THAN THE PICS - a TRUE mini skirt.
My models are XS and Medium, so it was pinned on the XS.
