Refashioned 1950s Silk Skirt


Refashioned 1950s Silk Skirt


This skirt began life as a beautiful 1950's short sleeved party dress with cross front bodice. However she was quite the worse for wear when she came to me (which you can read more about here if you like) and so she was refashioned into this lovely full gathered skirt. Central back metal zip closure with wrap around ruched waist sash.
