Houndstooth skater skirt
Houndstooth and tartan are two of my favourite patterns; both originated in Scotland.
My mom bought me my first houndstooth coat when I was a teenager, wish I could find a photo of it. My aunt gave my cousin and me matching houndstooth skirts in 1965, I don’t know what happened to it.
I was happy to find this houndstooth skater skirt recently on eBay, made in USA. It’s perfect for my dance class where this photo was taken. Love how it flares when I twirl.
That was always important to me, ever since I was a little girl; the first thing I did in the dressing room when trying on a dress or skirt, was to twirl. If the dress didn’t flare out, I told my mom that the dress doesn’t dance. “I want a dress that dances.”
It’s now part of my houndstooth collection:
Covered Perfectly top, peplum top, cardigan, ruffled scarf, winter coat.
