1950s Novelty Red and Yellow Patio Skirt, XS

1950s Novelty Red and Yellow Patio Skirt, XS

It's a darling! This 1950s striped novelty print patio skirt made from cotton fabric features cute hens and chicks woven into repeated stripe bands in yellow and white, on a tomato-red ground. Possibly homemade, this skirt has quite a small waist but could be taken out with careful alteration. There's no label, and it appears to be hand-sewn. It would make a great gift for the rockabilly gal in your life, or something special for the aspiring square dancer.

COLOR: Red, yellow, white.


CONDITION: Good to very good. There are five spots where it has been splashed with white paint. It could possibly be dyed to hide this. There is some fabric leeway for alteration, but please note that there is slight fading along the pleat folds.
This item is sold AS IS, and the price reflects the condition.

MEASUREMENTS: Please keep in mind that these are measurements taken when the garment is laid flat, please double, and allow for some ease.
