Vintage original 1950s novelty gambling print cotton skirt UK 6 8 US 2 4 XS S
On offer here is a great 1950s original cotton skirt. This is such a striking little skirt! It is made from black cotton and covered with the most amazing gambling print (there are also candles involved!) This is a special piece from my personal collection that I did not intend to sell, but needs must! When I got this it was a skirt that had been semi deconstructed, so it has been put back together. The zip therefore is new as is the button.
Waist: 24in (2in of spare fabric on tab)
Length: 27.5in (generous hem)
A UK 6-8
Overall very good. There is some slight fade present but you have to look pretty hard to find it. My name is Liz and I am the lady behind Advantage In Vintage. I have been collecting vintage clothing for over ten years (and selling it for nearly as long). My personal collection focuses on pieces from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s although I will quite often step outside this parameter when something has a particularly interesting print (I love a novelty design)! Via Advantage In Vintage I sell garments and accessories from Victorian to Modern. If I think it is interesting enough I will sell it! Items from my extensive vintage collection have featured in a number of books including Vintage Fashion Complete. I am currently studying for an AHRC funded PHD in fashion history at the University of Brighton. I’m something of a study-aholic and in 2014 I completed my MA in History of Design at the RCA. My dissertation focused upon my passion for Fashion History entitled ‘London Before it Swung: British ready-to-wear under the Model House Group and Fashion House Group 1946-66.' I’ve also previously worked as a museum curator running a local history museum in Surrey and as a research assistant at the V&A. I have a real passion for research and will often put tons of research into finding out the history of my pieces that I sell. My passion for vintage has led me to write two books Style Me Vintage: Accessories and Style Me Vintage: 1940s both published by Pavilion (and available in my Etsy shop!) Depending on parcel weight parcels might be posted by courier (MyHermes) or Royal Mail. Please note: I aim to send out parcels within 24hrs of payment, but if I have a particularly busy week it may take up to 4 working days for an item to be posted. Please note: I am not a shop, I run my ebay business totally in my free time- sometimes when I am busy with uni it will take me a few days to get back to messages etc for this reason. Most items are styled with petticoats underneath. These are not included in the sale. Items may be pegged or pinned to mannequin to show fit more accurately. Photographs may be lightened/ darkened to try and show garments to their best advantage, I will always try and mention if the colour in the pictures is not quite right. Most of the items I sell are vintage, this means they will not be like new items and show some age, but where possible I will always mention problems. I make every effort to describe any noticeable flaws or issues that affect the appearance or function of a garment. Therefore, all vintage items are sold as-is. Items will often have been stored for a while, so may have a musty scent- if this is particularly bad I will mention it (as a general rule if something is cotton or has a care label it will have been washed before sale) I will accept all types of payment inc. cheque and postal order, just let me know! I expect payment within 5 days, if this will be a problem please ask, I don't mind waiting longer just so long as I know. If payment has not been received within 5 days an unpaid item case will be opened. I ship worldwide. I do not accept returns unless goods have been grossly mis-represented. Returns are NOT accepted if garments do not fit or if the buyer simply changes their mind. The buyer pays return postage. Please note I work hard to take all of the pictures you see here. I fully understand that people often buy from me with the intention to sell on but please DO NOT reuse my images (or copy my description) without asking. Liz Tregenza
