Paisley Plaid Mini Skirt
- Vintage brown plaid Doubleknit
- Paisley Ruffle
- Brown Rust White Peach
- Womens XS Small Medium
- 1970's virgin vintage fabric

A warm brown ish and white plaid with a tiny orangey-red center stripes -- that's this vintage polyester double knit plaid suiting. Yup, I betcha they made a leisure suit from this! This mini skirt falls just at the knee.

The ruffle in dark peach, brown and purple paisley wash print brings out the warm tones in the brown, giving it a different look. The ruffle is joined to the skirt with exposed dark purple and brown serging, as well as edged with the same eggplant border. I stretched it to give that lovely rippled border.
This vintage polyester has some stretch, and tons of texture. I double stitched the sides (hips) for durability, and that pesky weight gain!

Topped with a 2-1/2" wide dark brown waist band of very soft cotton knit.

Vintage polyester fabric is just soooo BAAAD! But in my hands, it gets a cool new life again. Some might call this skirt recycled or upcycled, except the fabric is vintage virgin, NBS -- Never Been Sewed.
