Sob offering up a superb piece from my personal collection, i've worn and loved this, but it is time to move this beauty on. The skirt is made from thick cotton and fastens with a metal zip and single button. The print is absolutely lovely and is ballerinas in blue, pink, lilac and green outfits. I always found this a really versatile skirt, it goes with so much a true 1950s original gemwaist: currently at 25in. I took the button off and moved it in as it was a bit big for me. My personal collection focuses on pieces from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s although i will quite often step outside this parameter when something has a particularly interesting print (i love a novelty design) via advantage in vintage i sell garments and accessories from victorian to modern. If i think it is interesting enough i will sell it items from my extensive vintage collection have featured in a number of books including vintage fashion complete.

I'm something of a study-aholic and in 2014 i completed my ma in history of design at the rca. My dissertation focused upon my passion for fashion history entitled london before it swung: british ready-to-wear under the model house group and fashion house group 1946-66. I've also previously worked as a museum curator running a local history museum in surrey and as a research assistant at the v&a. I have a real passion for research and will often put tons of research into finding out the history of my pieces that i sell. Most items are styled with petticoats underneath.

These are not included in the sale. Items may be pegged or pinned to mannequin to show fit more accurately.

Photographs may be lightened/ darkened to try and show garments to their best advantage, i will always try and mention if the colour in the pictures is not quite right. Most of the items i sell are vintage, this means they will not be like new items and show some age, but where possible i will always mention problems.

I make every effort to describe any noticeable flaws or issues that affect the appearance or function of a garment. Please note i work hard to take all of the pictures you see here.
