SALE Vintage 1940s purple corduroy skirt A line waist 28” (101216)

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


The length and the slight A-line silhouette indicate that this skirt probably dates from the middle to late 1940’s.

The skirt is in great and wearable condition:

1. The color is even and unfaded. Any variation from one photo to the other is due to lighting.
2. The fabric is clean and free of holes, spots, bad smells, or perspiration damage.
3. The hem is free of dirt, water stains, or frayed edges.
4. The zipper still functions. However, I’m not certain if it is a front or side zipper.
5. There is a faint ‘waffle’ pattern here and there in the soft corduroy. I’m not sure, if this is intentional or if it was cause by pressing against something in storage. The pattern is hard to notice and does not detract from the quality of this vintage garment.

All measurements are taken while the skirt is lying flat on a table:

1. The waist is 14” (28”).
2. The length is 25”.
3. The hem circumference is 36 ½” (73”).
