Broom Tier Tee

by 1 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!

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.

Mark your calendars! The long-awaited launch of our first fall collection is right around the corner. After a long, hot summer of Sissy, we’re taking the collections on the road – metaphorically.

We got all caught up in Americana with the Sissy collection and we kind of let (probably our favorite ever) pajamas slip through the cracks. Our recent photoshoot made it clear the Stolen Ponies Sleepshirt deserves a little more spotlight than it got.
