Broom Tier Tee

by 1 March 31, 2011 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!

3.  As the wave passes over the shallow area its shape is

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.
