Scoring half-slips to upcycle gets harder and harder all the time they make such versatile, gorgeous silky maxi or midi skirts, but with demand for them almost nil they are hard to find even in the back of vintage shop. Imagine my happiness when i scored a whole stash in mint condition ready to upcycle! This one, most likely dating from the 1980s, is nonetheless is absolutely perfect condition: the nylon fabric is silky and breezy, all lace trim, waist and hem all in perfect condition. While it was a shy wall-flower in its original off-white, it is now a shimmering swirl of rich blues, pinks, purples and reds! After several trips to the dye bath with a host of different shibori techniques, the nylon is absolutely 3 dimensional and gorgeous!! From blah to va va va voom! The colors are so rich and the layering has such depth it is very difficult to capture in photographs though they are taken with different light levels zoom in to see the detail and feel free to message for even more! This skirt is perfect with sandals and a t shirt at the beach or around town. Or, pair with tights, boots and a chunky sweater for an art clothing look that goes from day to evening all fall and winter. Pair with silver heels and a sparkly top for nights out or with a simple camisole and nothing else for a night in with someone special. What other skirt can be lingerie, beach wear or evening wear so easily not to mention ecofriendly and made to last a lifetime this skirt will go anywhere you want to go! The skirt fabric wonderful and stretchy, and the waist is firm thin elastic. It is marked a women's 2xl (extra large) and measures 17 inches across the waist flat and unstretched, but stretches easily to 25 inches and still hangs lovely and straight. Hips measure 25 inches across measured flat and unstretched, but the a-line shape will look great with a variety of measurements. It has a saucy slit that can be worn at the back or to either side (see photos 3 and 5). The skirt measures 33 inches from center front to hemline and so should fall mid-calf to above the ankle. The saucy slit is a full 19 inches and lined with yet more lace. So many sexy details on this lovely piece....
