Edwardian Silk & Net Embroidered Black Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a really beautiful, black skirt from the Edwardian era. It's made of a heavy silk that has a slight shine to it and has a large cut out panel at the bottom that is filled in with netting. On top of the netting there are decorative panels of silk appliqued on in flor de liz style shapes. Each piece of applique is heavily embroidered with cord on top to create loads of detail and texture. The skirt has a slight gather at the top to give volume to it which makes it fall really nicely. There is a back opening on the waistband that is done up with hooks and poppers. The netting has been repaired in places but is not noticable due to the decoration on top. It's otherwise in fantastic condition and just a really lovely piece all round!
