$ 15.00Cute lace pencil skirt circa 1950s. Ice blue acetate lining with white lace over it. Super pretty scalloped edge at the bottom hem. Metal zipper down the back with one hook and eye at top. It is too small for my dress form so I just pinned it in back as you can see in the photos. There is no label. Fully lined. Extra small size, I'd say.
$ 96.00 - Sold OutUtterly lovely black mourning skirt from the early 1900s, possibly late 1800s. Fine mesh fabric, unlined. Perfect pintuck pleats all round the waist and each one is tacked down to just below the hips so it really holds its shape. The waistband is reinforced inside with a wide ivory grosgrain band. Heavy duty hook and eye closures which are probably meant to go up the back due too the way the pleats come together below it, but I've shown it here at the side. Small size I'd say.
$ 44.00Softest rick black silk velvet skirt circa late 20s or 30s. Wonderful slits up both sides that were sewn kind of oddly ( and I can't tell if it was intentional or not actually) to give the bottom hem a slightly asymmetrical look and give some fun shape and movement when you walk. Grosgrain ribbon inside the waist band. Two hook and eye closures at the waist on the side followed by three snaps underneath down the hip. No label, most certainly homemade. Small size.
$ 199.00This is exquisite! Delicious black wool Mexican full skirt circa late 40s or 50s. Looks like a full circle from that hip seam down. Look at that multi color floral embroidery in Day of the Dead colors! I've shown it with an added crinoline that's not included to really display that embroidery, but its equally gorgeous without it. Unlined, and I believe this is felted wool. Hook and eyes at the side waist and a metal zipper. No label. Small size. Gosh I wish it fit me!

Look at that darling novelty print in all the primary colors of country icons such as little flowers, chickens, people and bells. Fully lined with what feels to me like an ivory muslin.

Buttons at the waist and a metal zipper. Waistband is lined in black satin. No label. Small to medium size, I'd say.

The skirt is very full but not a full circle. Hook and eye closure and completely hidden metal zipper. I've shown the zipper at the back but I suspect its actually supposed to go at the side. Doesn't really affect how it looks either way so do what you're most comfortable with I say. No label. Small size.

$ 59.00Utterly charming circle skirt from the 1950s in a pastel checkered plaid. Multi colored silk. Metal zipper and a hook at the top. Its not a full circle, but its close. As you can see from the photo its a tad small for my dress form, Lola, but I just left it as it looked so good on her anyway! Oh, and by the way, the print does line up perfectly. Its just the way it looked in the photos that makes one line seem off up near the waist. This is one of classic Summer/ Spring pieces you'll find yourself wearing again and again. No label.
$ 36.00Beautiful soft velvet in a rich red color on this maxi skirt from the 1970s. And as if that wasn't enough, what makes it really special is the ethnic woven waistband;.a double wide band of woven jacquard ribbon. Its union made and still retains that tag, but I don't see a designer label anywhere.
$ 95.00 - Sold OutDivine little skirt in ivory with ivory lace panel down the front and another down the back. This--or parts of it at least-- could be anywhere from Edwardian to the twenties. My guess is early twenties. What I believe happened here is someone took a vintage dress that was probably heavily damaged up top, and upcycled it by removing the bodice area and adding an elastic waist to make a skirt. I have had several pieces from the same estate and most of them had been upcycled similarly, so this was something this woman had done a lot of, making antique pieces her own. :) Gotta love that ingenuity. There is a space on both sides between the panels. There is no label. About a medium but stretchy so maybe a large would work too. Skirt base feels and looks like a silk blend-possibly with rayon. Or a very very good rayon. You will wear this all the time, such a gorgeous basic!
