About

Sybil Connolly’s trademark was pleated linen, a labour intensive process, where up to nine yards of fine Irish handkerchief linen was hand pleated resulting in one yard of exquisite fabric…The pleats were set horizontally which gave her dresses and evening skirts a unique look, especially for the times (the 1959s)…In Connolly’s words, “It (the fabric) could be packed away and ‘emerge unscathed’, making it popular with the new modern woman… Jackie Kennedy, one of America’s most important style icons, wore one of Connolly’s pleated linen dresses for her official White House portrait…From the 1950s, in a gorgeous shade of tangerine, an evening skirt titled “Liaison”, a photograph in the Hunt Museum in County Limerick, Ireland shows a similar skirt titled “Liaison” and lists the designer as Sybil Connolly… Designed with a flat front and waist gathered sides…The underpinnings are an attached (2) silk petticoats with horsehair hems and an attached tulle petticoat, the linen skirt is lined in silk…The original label is missing, however, the waist tape is still in place with all the pertinent information (see photo)…Marked size S.M…This fits like an XS…In good condition, there is some opening of the pleats in a couple of places… Measurements are: Waist 21” Length 46”
