    Description

    This elegant silhouette was selected from a Spring 1916 W & H Walker's ready-to-wear catalogue. The Lily is a three-piece traveling suit. The fabrics used for garments that were intended to be used for this purpose would need to be durable and in colors that would practical for the rather dirty methods of traveling at the time. We have selected wool and silk which are fabrics consistent with what would have been available during this era.

    The Lily skirt has several unique features. The main body of the 6-gore skirt is stitched in black wool pique whose texture provides a visual interest in the field of black that it has created. The side gores are in the contrasting herringbone with black chevron patch pockets set at the intersection of the upper and lower halves of the these gores. The base of the pocket is stitch upon the box pleat of the lower gore. In addition, the Lily skirt features 32 antique brass sew through buttons. The buttons at the waist marry the skirt with the reversible peplum that can be removed at your desire.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Best Skirt, 6.10.2015
    Reviewer: Scheherazade (Philadelphia, PA)

    This is the most excellent skirt I have ever owned and probably will ever own and I might venture to guess that it is the only skirt of its kind being sold in the world. It is as heavy and cleverly constructed as comparable antique Edwardian skirts of this kind, which are extraordinarily difficult to find and nearly impossible to find in pristine, wearable condition and in one's particular size. I ordered this skirt at a practical length of 29 inches, so that it would be more practical, and every time I wear it, I feel a little tOo good about myself ^_~
