Tags say: escada by margaretha ley. Size 40 (skirt has been altered, so please see measurements to ensure proper fit).Skirt is in excellent vintage condition, although it has been professionally altered a bit at the waistband. It feels like originally there were 3 wide strips of elastic in the back that have been cut so it wasn't tight on the original owners stomach.
I don't know why they left the elastic inside the lining, but it has been sewn back up and looks great on the inside and outside i don't see any evidence that any seams have been adjusted, the fabric looks like new. Measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and doubled as appropriate. Measurements are of the garment itself, so please be sure to leave room for your body and movement as fabric is not stretchy.Waist: remember-it sits high and it is like a cummerbund: 35. Overall length from center top of front cummerbund to hem: 27 3/4.
Overall length from back top of skirt to hem: 26 1/4. The front cummerbund is about 5 long at the center front, the side/back wide waistband is about 4. Waist was clipped on mannequin to show proper fit. This item is made of rayon and new wool.
