A lovely rustic style skirt in slubby 100% silk matka (looks and feels rather like a heavy rough textured linen) with integral net petticoat and stiffened hem.
A high-waisted shape, with the top edge sitting about 2.5" above the natural waist. This has an internal boned foundation (to hip) to create a smooth corset like shape.
The skirt is hand embroidered with a deep border of wheat stalks.
Two deep pockets are trimmed with (non-functioning) hand embroidered sunflower buttons.
Fully lined in silk.
Closes at centre back with concealed zip.
*Shown with the Sunflower embroidered tulle blouse, which is NOT included in this listing, but is available to order in a separate listing*
Owing to the unique custom-made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. The skirt is shown on a standard UK size 8 mannequin, but it is actually more of a size 10...
Waist; 25", would fit up to 27" as skirt waist is supposed to be very fitted.
Hips; Up to 37" comfortably
Waist to hem (front); 43"
Waist to hem (back); 58"
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It was made specifically for a Van Gogh inspired look (hence the sunflowers and wheat embroidery) and has just been used for a couple of photo shoots. It is in excellent clean condition, with no marks, apart from maybe a very minor smudge or two on the underneath of the train hem. This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
