THE ARGYLE PUPPY Skirt - Large \/ 1X Plus

Vintage polyester fabric is just soooo BAAAD! Just imagine I rescued this fabric from someone's granny's attic...if we had attic here in the desert. Instead, there's a laundry cart of virgin fabric at my local Mormon store. This fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed.

This three-tiered OOAK skirt has two tiers of vintage doubleknit. Can you believe the Orange & White Argyle? The bottom tier is a houndstooth double knit. And even though these were purchased years and miles apart, the orange is the exact same shade! I guess the raw thread that was woven into fabric only took the one shade of orange! The bottom ruffle is a new lingerie ruffle.

This fabric dates from the Leisure Suit era , about 1969, when they made polyester doubleknit indestructible, so you could throw that Sunday dress in the washing machine. Somewhere, I'm sure, some granny made an Easter pant suit from either of these crazy fabrics! Or it might be earlier, like 1965, and there's a scooter dress from them.

All topped off with a 2-1\/2" wide waist band of orange soft cotton knit with a lot of give.

The layers are serged together with contrasting white stitching, and the ruffle has a finished edge.

I designed this OOAK skirt to have a dropped waist, which you can wear as high or low as your figure demands. If you're a plus,and you wear the waistband at your natural waist, it's a mini. If you're medium, and you wear it lower, it's knee-length. Either way, it's a CRAZY SHIZZLE!

If you like these fabrics, I do have more, so contact me if you'd like it it another size. The ruffle, however, will be different -- but you trust my taste, right?
