VINTAGE KITTY..Lily Hannah..

this is a beautiful full circle skirt.. the main fabric is upcycled from a vintage table cloth.. the fabric is a firm chiffon style, with the most inticate embroidery Ive ever seen on a table cloth , or on anything at all..!

the colours are devine.. the background colour a pale beige/off white, the embroidery is in autumny warm rich colours.. rust, shades of warm browns, tan, crea, sage and olive greens.. just beautiful.. (please excuse the dull winter light in my pics.. it in no way shows the amazingly beautiful embroidery to its full glorious best.. the colours are richer and more beautiful in real life.. )

the yolk is a soft brocade style fabric, in complimentary shades of soft warm beiges.. where the two join, Ive added a very old remnant of scalloped lace I salvedged from an estate sale..

the hemline is embellished with yards of hand dyed heavy guipere lace.. its a perfect colour match to the embroidery..

the skirt is lined in an ecru soft poly cotton, full circle to match the shape of the skirt.. on the hem of the lining is yards of a cream floral embroidered mesh lace, and on top of that a sagey green soft cotton fringe trim.. also a perfect colour match to the embroidery on the main skirt..

this is a substantial, beautiful piece, one of a kind and gorgeously vintage looking... looks fab with my Vintage Kitty camis, or with a plain tank, or denim vest.. lots of different looks...

best fit MED - LARGE.. .. it has an elasticated waist so it will fit quite a few different sizes..

MAXIMUM waist is about 20 inches across one side(51cm) so double for full circumference... relaxed elastic, one side is about 15 inches across front.. (38cm) - this can be altered if you need it tighter or looser..
hips - about where the circle and yolk meet is fixed and not stretchy.. this measurement across the front is about 21 inches (53.5)
the skirt itself is a huge full circle.. so loads of fabric.. hemline is full and 'dancy'..!

length including underneath layer is about 38 inches (95.5cm)... lovely and long.. would suit someone a bit taller, Im 5ft8 and its a lovely ankle length on me.. however if you are shorter and reeeeeaaaaallly want this skirt, with a bit of tweeking I could make it a bit shorter by removing an inch or two from the top of the yolk.. this would bring the hemline up max 2 inches

NB:
*washing instructions.., hand wash in cold and lay flat or on a hanger to dry.. the dyed lace has been set with heat and salt but may lighten slightly in first couple of washes..

*this skirt has many vintage components.. please wear gently.. imperfections, tiny marks or repairs, if any are part of the charm of wearing beautiful re-created garments.. please know that I would not offer anything that I wouldnt wear myself..

*this skirt has a couple of very faint marks most likely from use when it was, in a former life, a table cloth, not significant and definately do not take anything away from this amazing cloth.. the embroidery, (unknown if it is machine or hand) is in amazingly good, almost new condition from what I can see..


dont hesitate to convo me if you require other measurements or info regarding this or any other of my listings... Im new at this so I may have missed some bit of vital info..!
