VINTAGE HONEY VELVET SKIRT STORY:

This skirt is based on a 1960's pattern. The feature of this skirt is the very beautiful and rare vintage velvet we found just prior to lockdown. Truly a delight to touch and work with. There was only a few small pieces of this fabric available, just enough to make this short skirt. We decided to add a contrasting corduroy piping that picks up the honey-like colours that are revealed in the velvet as the light changes. The pink pearly button is another from Bea's collection and shines against the corduroy. The zip is an 'invisible' one!

CUSTOM MADE FOR YOU:

There was only enough fabric to make one skirt so this is a one-off garment. If you like this design and would like a CUSTOM MADE skirt please let us know your measurements and we will send you sample photos of available fabrics for you to choose from.

DETAILS:

Size: 12-14

Measurements (Approx.): Waist 84cm / Hips 108 cm / Length 49cm

Condition: Newly handmade from repurposed quality soft velvet. It is in very good condition however, this fabric had been folded before we bought it. Sadly, we were unable to get the fold lines out so you can see some faint lines on the back of the skirt. Please see photos. Please read the following re. care.

Fabric Care: Gentle hand wash in warm (not hot) water with a gentle soap. Dry flat in shade. If you are to iron this fabric it is important that you do not iron onto the pile. Put a towel on the ironing surface, turn the skirt inside out and make sure the pile sits on top of the towel. This will prevent the pile being flattened. Either hold the iron just above the fabric and steam it or use a lower temperature and carefully iron onto the wrong side of the fabric ensuring the iron is only lightly resting on the fabric and that you keep it moving. Do not overheat. A linen or cotton tea towel is handy to place between the iron and the fabric when ironing the wrong side of the fabric.

Features: This skirt is high waisted with an A Line shape that finishes above the knee. It features corduroy piping around the waistband and at the back closure along with a pink pearly button.

If you have any questions please do send us a message. We are happy to pass on any further details or pictures you might want.
