Sybil Connolly Irish Couture Hand Pleated Blue Linen Evening Skirt

$1,500

About

Known as the Irish Couturier, Sybil Connolly is most famous for her extremely rare pleated linen clothing. She used fabrics that were produced in Ireland almost exclusively, and the linen in this skirt is an example of the quality workmanship. Each garment uses nine yards of linen to make one yard of pleated linen. The pleats are all hand stitched into place. This stunning clear blue linen skirt is lined in white fabric and it is all hand finished in the couture manner. All of the pleats are tight and the skirt is in excellent condition. There is a series of hooks and eyes on the waistband above the left side zipper. The skirt is in excellent condition, with a few small marks on the waistband from a hanger. Measurements; Waist 26" + Hips Full Length 44"
