Object Name Skirt
Description Black skirt with one band of red, orange, and yellow patchwork in a diamond rattlesnake pattern. The patchwork row is banded by rows of pink, blue, orange and yellow fabric. This skirt is part of an outfit together with 2009.27.1, a black short sleeved blouse and is made from a synthetic modern material (rayon?). The skirt has a 1.25" waistband and a 7.5" section that fits tightly over the hips. The full skirt is gathered tightly at the bottom of the hip band. The patchwork and fabric bands are sewn onto the skirt almost as a layer of applique. Therefore, the back of the patchwork is not visible on the inside of the skirt as in most other patchwork examples. There is a side opening in the top of the skirt. The waist opening has two hook and eye closures below this there is a zipper closure in the hip area of the skirt. There is an elastic band inside the waistband in the back section of the skirt, but not the front section of the skirt.
