Striking gypsy skirt in beautiful striped raw 100% silk, in muted reds, browns, blues and greys.

This item is a handmade collaboration between myself and my mother - a professional dressmaker with her own studio and 40 yrs sewing experience.

The main skirt is a large gathered frill, that has been twisted and pinned in various places with tiny ribbon roses. The raw silk is a fairly stiff material, and this method gives it interesting shapes and ruffles that puff outwards, helped by a petticoat underskirt of black tulle netting.
The bottom edge is trimmed with thick black cotton lace.

The lining is also silk, a hot pink satin. This ends in a gathered frill of black cotton tulle, which peeps out from under the main skirt, acting as a petticoat - a frilled layer designed to push the main skirt outwards, giving it body and shape.

If you've ever worn silk, you know how gorgeous it is.. nothing else feels, sounds and looks quite like it. It catches the light quite beautifully -
helped by the raw texture of the upper skirt and its gathered shape.

This particular material is a thickly woven "raw" silk - meaning the thread varies in width, has coarseness and imperfections - this is intentional and part of the beauty of the material. The colour variations are part of the pattern, ie one continuous length shifting from blue to brown to red, and not strips that have been stitched together.


Measurements - waistband 74cm (28 inches) This makes it a size UK - 10-12, EUR - 38-40 , US - 8-10.

Length is 75cm including netting underskirt.

Warning! Please measure yourself to make certain - I use the Standard International sizes, but shops often vary widely, and tend to "size down" - example if you buy a UK-10 in the high street, its often really a Standard UK-12. Please measure yourself or a favourite skirt to make certain of your size in cm or inches.

We are working on a slightly different design in the same material - listing soon :)

Any further questions, please feel free to contact me via Etsy or herissonrosedesign [!at] gmail.com.
