Hand Painted Leather Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rock chic, handmade leather wrap skirt with an irregular hem and a peaked yoke. The yoke is hand painted with images of Native Americans in a western landscape, and it has laced edges. It closes on the side with 3 buttons made from slices of natural horn. The skirt itself has a handkerchief style that utilizes the irregular, raw edge of the hide. The holes in the hide give a flirty peek at the wearers legs.

The hip measurement was taken at the bottom sides of the yoke (7" below the waist), and it is more open below that. The length varies, but down the side with the buttons, it measure 25".
