Day Of The Dead Draped Satin Skirt

Day of the Dead draped satin skirt

This adorable high-waisted skirt, printed with cavorting skeletons, was discovered in a yard sale and altered. The polyester fabric drapes nicely, with plenty of body. The side draping forms a pair of pockets. The velvet waistband formerly belonged to a pair of pants. Two silver-colored plastic buttons in the form of roses decorate the front. They also provide closure, along with an off-center zipper below the right button. All of the materials are upcycled.

I love this print, and I wish I had yards and yards of it. Many of my favorite things – hats, bicycles, concertinas, flowers and bones – all playing together. Too cute!


Waist: 30"
Hips: up to 42"
Length: 15" (including the lace)

The skirt is pictured with the "Arsenic and Old Lace" capelet, the skull and bones sweater vest, and an "I don't care for apathy" t-shirt.
