This is such a beauty and i so wonder what it's history is it's a bit of a make-do-and-mend piece. I think it originally was a horrockses dress, which has been altered into a skirt. The skirt isn't labeled but the print is one of horrockses most famous - by pat albeck, approx 1953/54 - the oranges and lemons (which incidentally was recently re-released and slightly updated by the modern-day horrockses - though in my opinion the original print is so much prettier).Classic 50s shape with a high waistband a full fit with a midi length. White cotton with borders of oranges and yellow lemons amongst green and black and white leaves. It has a nylon back zipper and two small hooks and eyes to the waistband. Pictured with a petticoat but this is not included in the sale. Not labeled with a size, but fits approx an small. Please refer to the measurements. Top of waistband: 26" length: 34" (short hem only)conditiongood condition, presents nicely, but has been altered slightly in it's life and is priced as such:-i think it could have been re-hemmed, it's finished with a seam to the bottom of the skirt, see photo. Nothing you would see when worn, and very neatly done. The waistband has had a small panel added at the back to lengthen it, see photo.
It's pretty neat, and nothing you would really notice when wearing it. Zipper looks later than 50s so must have been added/replaced. There is some very faint ghost stitching along the centre seam to the back of the skirt, only visible when very closely examined. One tiny spot below the zipper at the back, see photo.
