Description

Austin Reed – Game bird vintage skirt (rare)

Age unknown although I estimate 1960s / 1970s as the waist is particularly petite. Please don’t let that put you off though as there is plenty of fabric in the skirt for the waist band to taken off and a new one added to fit larger sizes (by a skilled seamstress).

The label says size 10 however with the waist measuring approximately 56 cm /  22 inches I would say this is much smaller than a size 10 of 2019.

There is plenty of fabric in the skirt with the distance around the hem being approximately 180 cm / 70 inches

The length of the skirt is approximately 82cm / 32 inches.

The garment is vintage but appears unworn and in brand new condition.

The labels indicate that the fabric is made of “New Wool” and the lining / petticoat is 100 % Acetate the whole garment is indicated to be Dry Clean Only

Since finding this item I have tried researching  but have continually drawn a blank. I can conclude that this is in deed a  very unusual item that is very hard to come across another like it.

We only have the one and it will be first come first served.

Please email me should you have any further questions about this item.
