1950s Saks 5th Avenue Skirt

A classic and hard to find 1950s circle skirt and this little beauty still has its Saks Fifth Avenue label to! It was almost certainly a designer pieces as well but sadly there is no longer any other tag. It has a very Claire McCardell feel to me and is a wonderful example of early American casual but with a nit of a French chi flair. The exterior is a gorgeous bias cut cotton with a bold blue print worked into the fabric. Inside it is fully lined in stiffened muslin so it has a full feel with or without a crinoline. Little side pockets are the perfect finish! It is a dramatic statement piece and the girl with a waist to fit it is one lucky girl indeed! Excellent condition

Fully lined in a white, stiffened muslin. It closes with a side painted metal zipper and metal hook & eye at the waist. I chose not to photo it with a crinoline under but you could add a light crinoline and get a very full round shape. It is still very full without it as photoed!

Hips: open
Total length: 27" from waist to hem
