|1890's Five Gore Skirt by Laughing Moon
Ladies' skirt in three lengths with lining and optional pocket.
1890's period or modern skirt has seams at side front, side back,
center back and pleated back panels (no side seams). Back opening
has period placket opening with hooks and eyes or modern zipper
closure. The optional (but suggested) lining is sewn to the skirt
pieces in the "flat lined" method and the hems are faced. The 6"
fitted hem facings provide strength to the hem to stand away from
the ankles and provide fullness, as well as protect the hem. The
skirt has a waistband and a single optional pocket, hidden in the
left or right back side seam. There are three different length
options: Walking skirt length in front and back for easy mobility or
modern wear, short train length which is 6 inches longer in back,
and long train length which is 12 inches longer in back. The trained
lengths are suitable for formal, evening, or bridal wear.
