Fabulous Turn of the Century Skirt

From the seller:

Great Graphic Gay 1890’s Print Petticoat with Swirl Design

This petticoat dates to the 1890’s and is fashioned of white cotton with a brown stripe and bold swirl print. There was once a larger button in the rear and a smaller one has been replaced, there may have been a drawstring as well, minor wear is seen at the waistline with an eraser sized hole just beneath the button of the enclosure but the condition is otherwise excellent. Measures 36 inches around the waist, 40 inches in its length, and a bottom sweep measuring roughly 100 inches around.
Vintage clothing is described to its best and sold as found…and described as accurately as possible. The items HAVE NOT been cleaned and should be cleaned prior to wearing at the discretion of the buyer. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed. Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor.

From Me:

I sort of want to just cut this in half, take the bottom half, pleat it to a new waistband, and wear this to work. :-)
