Blue Spanish Floral 1930s Style Venice Beach Swing Skirt
Based on an authentic 1938 dancer's skirt, this seven gored, full fabric skirt has perfect twirls on and off the dance floor! A slimming, wide waistband closes with three mother-of-pearl buttons. Sitting at your natural waist, this skirt is true to size- or order one size down to wear this in the high waist style of the late 30's!
This skirt was made in collaboration with Swing Sleuths, the caretakers of the Swing dancer Genevieve Grazis' clothing collection. In memory of her legacy to Swing dancers today and in honor of her love for children, $5 from each skirt will go to the Frankie Manning Foundation Youth Initiative program. This program helps support groups doing amazing work to build the future of swing dance, such as the Cleveland Junior Jitterbugs!
Watch Genevieve dance in the dress version of this skirt, in the rare 1938 footage known as "The Venice Beach Clip"!
