This one's a real find it's a vintage 50s women's novelty print skirt, in teal blue, with a wonderful folk art border/novelty print pattern. There are tiny pinkish plants which make us think that it must be a beet farm.
There's also some animal print action going on, with a horse or donkey in harness, and a small wheeled cart waiting to be filled with purple goodness. And there are bird tracks on the hem whether you're on your way to a square dance, a prairie social, or just heading out on a fine summer day, this charming folk print skirt should be the very thing lou stepped gingerly through the vineyard behind the farm, careful not to let her skirt get caught in any low branches. Quite familiar during the day, the vines took on a mysterious cast in the late summer evening. As she approached the spot they were supposed to meet, she knew there was no place she'd rather be.There's a good amount of material here - it's so nice to have a generous size, but it's also fantastic to take apart and remodel to your own size. Measurements: keep in mind that these are measurements taken when the garment is laid flat, please allow for some ease.
