This Chocolate Brown Skirt is wonderful. This is a piece of “regular” clothing, not costume- like at all. The fabric is a lightweight, durable, a beautiful, chocolate brown - love the color! I’d wear this to work if the pleating were just a tad bit less but it’s perfect for my historical presentations. It pairs well with a crisp white peasant blouse and is historically relevant for many periods. A small crinoline may be worn to dress it up but it’s a nice ladies‘ travel, leisure or peasant style as is. I’m thrilled to find this versatile, genuine garment in period style. I’m 5’9”, size 10 with a smaller waist, ordered the large, length and waist was perfect. Highly recommend.
