With winter just around the corner (here in New England, anyway) I thought it was the perfect time to put this lovely skirt into the shop. This skirt is part of the Agile line produced by Florence Walsh Fashions, Inc., a company founded in the early 1960's by Florence Z. Walsh that was located in Poughkeepsie, NY. They specialized in ladies sportswear and their tag line was "Clothes With the Charm of a Brogue". This skirt would be very at home roaming the moors in the fog with your hounds. It's a late 1960's / early 1970's slate grey wool maxi wrap skirt that has a lovely weight to it but is a soft, comfortable wool, not the stiff scratchy kind. It's fully lined in matching grey acetate fabric. What's fun is the skirt has coral on peach satin ribbon trim around the waist, down the front of the skirt and all along the hemline for an unexpected pop of color against the grey. I paired it with a soft peachy pink vintage sweater in the photos. You could wear a similar top, add a string of pearls, a vest or scarf, tights and some mary janes or pair it with a chunky sweater and boots for a more casual look. I love the versatility of it. It's a wrap skirt with four darts at the waist line and a button and snap closure at the waist. The overlap is about 8", so keep that in mind if the waist measurement is a bit too small you could move the button & snap to gain another inch or two. Overall it's in excellent condition. There are a few tiny scattered holes in the wool but because the wool is so dark and mottled in color, they hardly show. It presents beautifully and is a great investment piece, especially if you live somewhere where the weather tends to be on the cooler, damp side.
Measurements: Waist 27" / Hips @ 40" / Length 39"
