VICTORIAN WOOL BLEND LONG SKIRT W SOUTACHE & SPIDER WEB STITCHED DETAIL. DATING TO THE VICTORIAN 19TH CENTURY. FASHIONED OF A WOOL BLEND WITH ORNATE SOUTACHE AND EMBROIDERED DETAILING IN LEAVES RUNNING FULLY AROUND THE SKIRT WITH OPENINGS IN SPIDER WEB STITCHING BACKED IN SILK MOIRE. THE BOTTOM EDGE IS PIPED IN A SILK TAFFETA. HOOK AND EYE CLOSES THE REAR. THE SILK PIPING OF THE BOTTOM SHOWS SMALL POINTS OF WEAR AND I BELIEVE THE SKIRT WAS ORIGINALLY LINED BUT NO LINING IS ON THE INTERIOR. LOOSE SILK CHIFFON IS SEEN THROUGHOUT AND I PERSONALLY WOULD CONSIDER REMOVING ALL OF IT. THERE ARE SEVERAL SMALL NIPPED HOLES TO THE BODY OF THE SKIRT THAT ARE VERY MINOR AND UNSEEN. THERE IS A FIVE INCH LINE ALONG THE HEM OF A SMALL SCATTERING OF HOLES, AS PICTURED. I BELIEVE THAT THE WAIST WAS INCREASED IN SIZE, WAS WELL DONE AND WAS FINISHED OFF IN A COTTON TAPE AT THE FRONT WAISTBAND, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SLIGHTLY MORE GATHERED IN THE FRONT. SEVERAL SMALL TRACE ERASER SIZED STAINS ARE IN THE BODY OF THE SKIRT BUT DESPITE THAT, IT LOOKS IN CLEAN CONDITION. Our business name is ANTIQUE WARDROBE.

A mistake can happen… Vintage and antique items ARE NOT new items. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed. Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor. These are antique articles, having the age stated.. All flaws if any are painstakingly outlined. _gsrx_vers_1436 GS 9.0.5 (1436). This item is in the category “Clothing, Shoes & Accessories\Specialty\Vintage\Women’s Vintage Clothing\Dresses”.
