Vintage Ruffles White on White Patchwork Skirt

Vintage Ruffles White on White Patchwork Skirt

This is a pretty, white on white patchwork skirt, with vintage ruffles. The patchwork is made up of recycled and vintage eyelet laces, satins, cottons, silks, and taffetas. The under slip is from a vintage half slip(1940’s or 50’s) with pretty brown and ecru lace, ruffles. The hemline is finished with a strip of cotton calico from a vintage apron(1960’s) and a strip of embossed pink silk both have unfinished edges, and a beautiful hand sculpted flower made from an iridescent mauve taffeta from the inside of a vintage ladies coat from the 1930’s. this skirt has an elastic and drawstring waist treatment which ties in the back.
