This is a lovely vintage long black skirt from Saks Fifth Avenue. It has four stand-out features - its length, its fabric, its high or raised waist, and its "sailor" conceit. Let's start with the fabric because it continues to astonish me. There is no longer any fabric content or care label in the skirt, so I can only tell you what it feels like. It feels like a high quality, buttery soft cashmere knit that is, at one and the same time, both incredibly elegant and luxurious, and yet also comfortable and comforting.The length from top to bottom is 34 inches. Between the length of the skirt and the raised waist, the skirt presents a very long, fluid and graceful profile or silhouette. Indeed, although I'm a fairly short person, I felt taller in this skirt.
I left like I had bearing. In addition to the waist's being raised or high, it's been specially configured to look like sailor pants.
What I mean by this is that there are two rows of buttons on a front panel that opens downwards when you unbutton it. I've tried to show this in picture # 7.As with sailor pants, this is the only way in and out of the garment! In my view, the decision by the designer to combine the casualness of sailor's pants with the look of long, formal evening wear or business wear was inspired. I believe the combination or hybrid look works. You'll have to decide for yourself. Photos numbered 1, 2, 7, 9 and 10 are of the front of the skirt.
Photos # 3, 4 and 8 are of the side. And photos #'d 5 and 6 are of the back. The overall look is very sculpted or sculptural. Width One-Way Across the Waist: 12 inches. Width One-Way Across the Bottom of the Skirt: 21 1/2 inches.
