So wonderful!!! Another mid-century pencil skirt – as I’ve said, you can’t have too many. As usual, this one fits perfectly and has the expected tailoring details of a well-made garment. Ignore the camera spots – it’s beautiful.
Love unraveling the stories of every find; this one was custom-tailored of a soft wool, with acetate liner in the seat. Tailors used to do this with wool skirts to prevent stretching of the fabric from sitting. I love the well-constructed waistband and side closure plus the fantastic fit.
Easy to dress up or down. A basic black piece like this is always chic and when the quality is high plus a perfect fit, that’s what makes the difference between attractive and elegant – between fashionable and chic – between nice-looking and truly well-dressed. Our grandmothers knew that, and most European women haven’t forgotten.
Would go nicely with the cocktail sweater I found and showed you a few days ago. I plan to wear it with vintage jackets, blouses and sweaters. I’ve discovered a trove of skirts lately – more to come . .. . . . . . . . . . . .. . .. .
