This item is currently on display in my boudoir installation at Artomatic. ( I'm on the 8th floor in space 217.) which means I cannot remove it until after June 23. If you want to buy it, I can ship it out afterwards....

This is an upcycled thrift store bridesmaid skirt in a wonderful washable taffeta. It had a small burn in the back, and I loved the living that suggested. I dyed it from babydoll pink to teaberry with a brown underskirt; made a cigarette-burn floral garland tracery at the hem, savaged the underskirt, added a removable tulle bustle and brown satin ribbon hem. Then I sewed on a bunch of small rings, so you can gather up the skirt with ribbon ties. That's all.

The skirt waist measures 27.5 inches (70 cm) and the tag lists the size as U.S. size 5/6. It's an A-line style and roomy-- allows at least 44" (112 cm) around the bum.

Actually this comes from a smoke-free home. I had to burn a few cigs outside though for this one. Does anyone need the rest of a pack of Newport filters?
