Back to School – 1950s Style

These are two skirts that my mom wore to high school in the early 1950s.  I wore them again in the 70s, often.  They are very comfortable and wear like iron!

corduroy skirt from 1950s

Corduroy skirt – look how the pink and blue lines in the pleats line up perfectly!

cotton skirt from the 1950s

Beautiful white and red cotton skirt with a crinoline underneath to give it body.

nylon petticoat from the 1950s

They were called crinolines like the old horsehair petticoats, but this one is actually made of nylon. It’s a full circle and was worn under the white and red skirt.

All you need is a twin set and some pearls and you could wear them today!
