This 1950s tiered more-than-a-full circle skirt is fashioned from true-red bandana print cotton. Made by the pioneers of American western wear, this unlined skirt closes at the side with a metal zip and button at the set-in waistband. Elastic along 5"/12.5cm of the back waistband for comfort. Perfect for dancing! Made in Colorado, U.S.A. From the fabulous estate of Dorothy E.
Shown with a crinoline (not included), but skirt is nicely full even without one.
