Broom Tier Tee

March 31, 2011 1 min read 6 Comments

I was surfing around on the internet today

and looking at old vintage sewing patterns.

.

.

I saved some of the old squaw skirts - also referred to as patio skirts, broom skirts, tiered skirts, and/or fiesta skirts.
.
I think their name changed every decade, but basically they remain the same with a length or embellishment change.
.
I  find them interesting and beautiful.  Anyway, the fullness and tiering are the concept  behind our California Cowgirl Broom Tee.
.
just goes to show - nothing in fashion is really new!

     breaks outside the normal surf line.

2.  Also an Austrailian vodka....
3.  As the wave passes over the shallow area its shape is
     raised and steepened, creating a localised wave formation.

agree – I think the Seminole skirts are a class of their own – works of art!

I have a huge stash of patterns if you run out!!
Full tiered skirts are cool, hide lots of sins, and have been around for centuries!

I think I have one of those patterns. These skirts always remind of Seminole Patchwork, beautifully made.

PowWows always give me inspiration.
Have a great day.
