Alice Skirt Size 8
Waist 70cm Length 61cm
Alice loves to explore, though rabbit holes are not on the agenda for this girl! She is a pretty A-line vintage skirt with a back zip for easy wear. Made with 100% high quality cotton, Alice enjoys dancing, strolling on the promenade and a glass of wine before dinner. In fact, Alice is such the perfect 50’s skirt that she’ll have you doing the jitterbug and off to the sock hop in no time at all.
There is nothing Alice enjoys more than enjoying a long and relaxing Sunday brunch with her nearest and dearest. But she does have a wild side, as all Alice fans know and she enjoys a splash of colour when the mood suits her. For that reason, you may often find Alice sporting a different colour waistband and/or hem, instead of her regular single fabric skirt.
As a retro inspired A-line skirt, Alice flares gently out from your waist all the way down to your mid-calf. But just because she is a triangular shaped skirt doesn’t mean she is sharp, angular and pointy. She moves perfectly in all the right places, giving you a glamour achieved only from wearing one of the best skirts from the 1950’s.
Team her with some beautiful vintage inspired accessories such as a retro cape and she’ll match your pace for as long as you can! Dress her up with some strappy sandals or slip on some comfy Mary Janes and Alice will take you as far as the looking glass and back, collecting you all the oohhs and aahhhs of admiration along her way. Perfect for both casual and semi-casual wear, she is certainly a must have vintage style skirt for your wardrobe.
Alice is handmade in Auckland by experienced vintage dressmaker Vanessa Kelly. Vanessa specialises in the creation of unique vintage women’s clothing and will only use a fabric once on each of her garments. Alice is easily cared for with a warm machine wash, line dried and pressed with a warm iron.
The A-line style began life on the fashion runway during the 1950’s thanks to designers Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. Both were passionate about the A-line style and it featured in many of their designer lines as both dresses and skirts. Auckland dressmaker Vanessa has also handmade Victoria and Donna, both of which are A-line dresses which follow along the same popular path as these two great fashion designers.
