chelsea skirt - sarah bernhardt
Straight out of the 60s. This is a super high-waisted A-line mini skirt. Cut for the most flattering fit with a cinched waist and wide hips. Slightly longer in the back for style and comfort. Back zip closure. Dress down with a vintage tee and knee boots, or style for a night-out with a strapless top and kitten-heels.
Our entire vintage-fabric line is made using remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero environmental impact and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this non-stretch cotton (circa 1970s) to make 7 skirts! Made locally in NYC by our legendary seamstress. For a perfect fit, measure the smallest part of your waist above the belly button. This best fits a 23 inch waist in XS, 25 in S, 27 in M, 29 in L, 31 in XL (or custom). *Please note, this piece is upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, so the fabric content not always guaranteed. Dry clean is best (poly/cotton chelsea skirts can be washed cold/hung dry).
