“Billowy Circular Skirts” Of 1952

By , 26 October, 2009, No Comment

In Rebecca’s Fashion Trends From 1952 post (at her fabulous b.vikki vintage blog — you’ve got to go see it!), she’s posted some beautiful scans of “billowy circular skirts” that are “made to be worn with or without the ruffled petticoats, so popular this season,” which were circle skirts designed by — you guessed it! — Juli Lynne Charlotte of California. (Note that in this one issue of Jet Magazine, Charlotte is both “Juli Lynne” and “Juli Lynn” — something that seems to have been a chronic problem, despite the designer’s fame. For the record, the designer’s labels read “Juli Lynne Charlotte.”)

    I love this post and I love these skirts. As soon as I get my mother to sit down for 5 minutes, I’m going to get her to help me sew a circle skirt. Do you mind if I like to this on my blog?

    Thanks for stopping by, Jennifer and Desiree!

    I certainly don’t mind links to my blog — and I’d love to see the skirt when you and your mom get to making it!
