Vintage Skirt by Chanel Paris in Black Silk Taffeta Ruffle


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a gorgeous black silk taffeta skirt made by Chanel Paris.  The skirt is made in a long / full length style with pleated panels arranged vertically as well as with a pleated flounce around the bottom.  There is a shallow pocket built into either side below the waistline.  A Chanel double C logo studded in black rhinestones is affixed to the left waist.  It is beautifully cut in a form flattering design.

Label: Chanel / Made in France on the product label

Color: Black

Fabric:  Content label reads “100% silk”.

Sizing: The size label reads French size 36, which should be equivalent to a US size 6, but please note the following measurements for fit: 

Waist:  31”

Hips:  35” - 36” around

Length:  38” - 39” measured flat

Condition: It's in very good condition with the exception of some open seams at the waist - it appears that the original owner opened some seams so that the waist would fit.  There are also a couple of small stress separations in the silk in one place below the waist area, probably due to a snug fit.  All of this can be seen by viewing the taffeta with a strong light behind it (see last close-up photo).  You could either have the seams put back or if the 31” waist works for you, leave it as is.  The silk is of excellent quality, so I don’t think that there is a risk of deterioration with normal use.  

This is a beautiful evening skirt, great for a formal occasion - exceptional Chanel design that is sure to be noticed.
