We fell in love with this fabric as soon as we saw it. A pretty print, that lends itself to any era, but to us it looked like it was straight out of the 30s. red white and blue flouwers with green leaves are scattered all over. The fabric is a reasonably heavy woven, which we believe to be polyester. It looks like a moygashel linen, with a square weave and a completely matt finish.
The skirt itself is a 1940s pattern, which matched the fit and flare of not only an original 1930s skirt but also a 1950s pattern. The only difference was the number of panels. They clearly did regurgitate the things that worked well!
Our edition comes with a wide 1.5" (4cm) waistband, YKK metal side zipper and a cute matching daisy button. The length from the top of the waistband to the hem is 28" (71cm)
The first edition has already been popular with swing dancers, since it goes with many colours and washes well.
