1950s Lime and Navy Rose Print Stripe Skirt, by Graham Sutherland, 26in Waist
Beautiful bright lime green and deep navy blue rose print skirt from the 1950s that has been attributed to the famous artist and print designer Graham Sutherland. Sutherland was well known for his rose print for the Horrockses brand, which is very close in style to this. Regardless, this is a beautiful design, with a very unusual and wonderful colour palette which looks fab teamed with navy blue and turquoise accessories. Incredibly high quality and really unique, a wonderful piece for a collector.
Shown with a small petticoat underneath, not included.
• Artist sketch style roses, attribute to Graham Sutherland
• Bright lime background with navy blue stripes and navy sketched roses, outlines in white with a punchy aqua turquoise to offset - wonderful colour combination!
• Large, deep pleats under the waistband
• Below the knee length
• Firm waistband
• Fastens with three hooks and eyes on the waistband, and a metal zip, Lightening brand
• Made with a mid weight cotton, homemade but to a very very high standard
• It appears that there has been some slight sun fade, which is most noticeable when you lift the hem up or fold the pleats back. The lime has gone a very slightly redder hue, which I have tried to show in the last few photos. I personally do not see this as too noticeable. It actually looks worse in the photos, but my camera does not like to photograph lime colours!
• Care/composition: no label
Length: 26in with 3.5in hidden hem
