Edwardian White Cotton Eyelet Lace Petticoat Skirt$175.00
This lovely cotton skirt would have originally been worn as a petticoat, underneath a skirt or dress. It is made from a durable, light to medium weight, finely woven cotton fabric in white. It is a classic design, with a 1.5 inch width waistband, with a lightly flared skirt. The hem of skirt features a wide pleat, followed by three narrow pleats, and finished with a wide width of ruffled machine-made cotton lace. The only other detail to note is the v-shaped opening at center back. Now, this is where the twist comes in: I have added a small gusset section (of antique, matching cotton fabric) at the center back closure, in order to make this skirt more wearable, but also, to customize the sizing! So, this means that there are currently no hook & eyes or snaps present at this closure. If you purchase this garment, you may send me a message with your measurements and I will put in your closure of preference (either snaps or hook & eye sets), sized specifically for you (or you may request no closure be put in), to your waist and hip size. I know this is a bit unusual, but I wanted to offer this skirt for custom sizing! Overall condition is excellent with a few small issues; small repaired hole near top pleat, tiny light grey mark, pale yellow stains at back, 'ghost stitching' at side seam from a previous alteration. Please see photographs for details.
