50’s Collage skirt **Tall over 5ft 9in**
Super slimming ‘collage wear’ from the original 50’s pattern. Fabulous anytime for todays retro gal very limited sizes left.
This skirt is so figure flattering, the straps draw the eye to the deep V on the very high waistband. The waist looks highly tailored but it really is also a trick of the eye, which is great as it comes straight from an original 1950’s pattern and very few of us have a authentic 50’s figure.
The fabric is a black lightweight suiting with plenty of stretch in it and it feels really light and comfy on. Having said that it really shouldn’t be worn skin tight. There is a 12″ zip at back, this may sound too long but it means you don’t have to squeeze your hips in the same space that your waist needs. There is also a small split in the center back hem.
My sizes are, as always, very generous and are more like the better class High St shops than the cheaper stores or most other retro sites. If you class yourself as a size 14-16 then you should buy the 14….. size 20-22 then get the 20. If you have any concerns about your size please fell free to send me your measurements and I will try my best to help you.
The straps are only fixed at the back so you can adjust them to how you feel comfortable.
Made from a medium weight polyester suiting.
Each size is proportionally tailored to work with a smaller/ taller frame. As a guide, I class a Petite as under 5ft 4in….. A Regular is from 5ft 4in to 5ft 8in and a Tall would be for those over 5ft 9in.
Tall sizes are 36″ long but this measurement is to be taken from just under your bust.
Gypsy top is sold separately & I only have a very limited limited stock, you’ll find them listed under tops.
10 tall, 12 tall, 16 tall
