They usually had matching jackets. I have not seen another one with fringe like this. As you can see it has the usual white cummerbund style waistband which is stained but as it is not meant to be seen, it does not really matter. You may be able to oxy out; i never tried but probably have to see if dry cleaner could get color run out.

There are little tabs on either side of the top of the band which i guess were used for closing, maybe with a ribbon, not sure. I think someone sewed up the seam as mosti have seen are open so they can be wrapped and then closed (this could possibly explain why this one is larger). The finely embossed silk is a gorgeous vibrant red with multi-colored hand embroidered embroidered flowers and then fringed at bottom. It is in very good condition for its age with the exception of a small black spot on the back which may or may not come out; i have not touched it and it is not overly noticeable (zoom the last pix).

There are also some loose seams but otherwise in amazing shape for something this old. It is a larger size than usual but as stated above not sure how they actually wore back in those days. I thought to wear with just a plain black top or sweater.

Great boudoir piece or dress up skirt. I have shown wearing either with openings on side or back. The seam down from where the cummerbund has been sewn has a bit of a pleat which i tried to show in pix.

Across the back waistband 17.5. Across the back bottom 26.
