The Red Skirt

I made it to the Vintage Market in Berwick today.  Didn’t get to the Mind, Body and Spirit show as I blew the budget at the first stop.  Along with some wonderful lace I came home with a very special skirt.

I took some quick pictures for you and will take more tomorrow.  Its been cut down from another piece – a dress?  Not sure, but its the real thing in terms of metalwork embroidery and it is really heavy.

  1. This is beautiful Helen. It looks like a traditional Indian wedding dress to me. Not a sari, but the name escapes me at the moment. A friend of mine wore one for her wedding, it was so heavy because the threads were real gold.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
