Vintage embroidered wool dirndl peasant skirt with yolked waistband in winter white. Skirt was handmade and beautifully designed with elaborate floral embroidery and catch stitching. Material is a fine, lightweight wool. The yolked waistband is cotton with a 2 button closure, shell buttons are mismatched. It's hard for me to determine the age of this piece but I suspect it's 1910s or earlier. It seems like it may have been an item made for a young girl, but that's a guess.
There are condition issues as follows:
- Staining at the waistband. I have not washed this piece so it may come out with soaking. See second to last photo.
- There are about a dozen moth holes, approximately 1/8th of an inch in width or smaller. See examples in the last photo.
Overall skirt structure is solid and has lots of life left in it. This would be an a great vintage rehab project, costume or charming collection piece. It's also still quite wearable as-is.
Fits like size S.
Material: wool & cotton
Brand/Maker: unknown, handmade
Condition: very good for age, issues listed above.
