This is a seriously stunning sequinned painted mexican full circle skirt. Because there are so many sequins when you walk or dance or move it just sparkles. The cotton has been handprinted with multi colours. Then over this is a fabulous scene of men, women, donkeys, plants and house. Which is then embellished with the sequins.It is a full skirt with a wrap tie waistband and two pockets (which i only discovered when i photographed inside). At some stage someone added a couple of fasteners to each side (i'm assuming to stop any gapes) however in doing so stitched through the pocket opening.
This can be easily rectified as its only a couple stitches in a couple of spots on each side (please see photos). You can tie the skirt waist a couple of different ways.How i did it was. You put the inner waistband round and fasten with the hook-eyes. Then the outer waistband goes round then ties. The skirt is in very good condition. None of the painting has faded and most of the sequins are still there.
At first when i received it i thought there were quite a few sequins missing on the square up down round about pattern on the black section near the waistband however i then realised that only certain lines have sequins on them. Its part of the pattern. However there are still some sequins in spots missing.A lot when compared to whole skirt. I think its made of a thick cotton. There's no tag re material. It holds its shape well and is definitely not polyester nor is it one of the velvet type skirts. Either because i can't fit them in my the place i moved to or haven't worn them for years.
Or sadly because i don't quite have the same waist. As its the case with this one. Otherwise it wouldn't be on etsy as i love it.Creaciones naitan is a 1950s era make. Waist: 25-26 you could do slightly bigger if you don't mind a little gap on each side. Length: 32 from bottom of waistband. Also given the covid ups and downs australia post is delivering to most places (we're lucky our post is functioning really well) however. I will have tracking put on the parcel so you can follow it and know where its at at any point in time.
They're usually 50-80+ years old. They're not new so may not be perfect. I do my best to find and explain any faults.
