Exceptional quality and weight 100% English Wool mid-calf length pleated Riding Skirt, in a creamy-beige and yellow ochre distinctive striped heritage herringbone pattern.

True vintage and bought directly from the Jaeger factory in Leicestershire late 1970's - so flattering to wear I bought 2 - the second different colourway is also listed.

Original label gives size as size 14 - to fit waist 28", Hips 39" but actual measurements taken flat are waist 30", Hips 40", length 31" which I think would be most suitable for modern size 10 - 12. It fastens at the side with four buttons and a hook fastener so a small amount of adjustment could be possible. It can be worn in the true waist position or a little lower in the modern style.

The mannequin is a slim Italian from Sisley size 8 - 10 and she is a little underweight to hold the hip circumference out so the pleats are dropping inwards and slightly overlapping on the photos.

The pleats are approx. 2cm wide and stitched into a closed position for approx. 10cm and then the fabric is released giving lots of swing and a swirling movement as you walk. The skirt always falls beautifully into position and gives a very slim profile similar to a straight kilt at the hemline because of the heavyweight cloth.

You will not be disappointed with this incredible quality vintage skirt and would not find anything comparable to this wool tweed now - actual weight of garment 660 grams! There is approx. 2m 40cm fabric used when hemline is stretched out of the pleating.

It is a very wearable vintage piece, terrific with riding boots and does not require exactly matching period accessories, ideal street wear for that London look!
