Trained Net Skirt

Trained Net Skirt
C.1906. This is a gorgeous skirt. Its made completely out of sheer silk like netting. You would have worn a colored petticoat underneath it to give a hint of color and contrast with the black netting, or you could just wear a black petticoat to give it texture.
This would have been worn for evening wear or dancing, as it has a wrist loop at the side of the skirt so you could lift up the train for dancing. It measures 30" in the waist, approx 40" long in the front and 54" long at the train.
