(waist band is 3.5 inches from seam to top and angles outward due to its position on the ribcage, if you have a question about this just message me). Velvet skirt with the most amazing colors and fabric high waisted handmade velvet paisley print skirt, fully lined with pockets and a metal zipper.This skirt really speaks for itself. It's amazing my estimate would be late 50s - early 60s. Vintage sizing is not always accurate and i do my best to make conversions so that clothes are easier to find through available search functions. Light wear and tear is normal for vintage clothing and is to be expected. Any stains or damage that i have seen will be shown in photographs. This item is made of velvet.
