60s crop top, corset and double belt pleat skirt

Added Jan 25, 2015

by Irina Schwab

Aylesbury, Unite...






Inspired by 60s crop tops and double belt pleat skirts: my 3-piece outfit (top & skirt & corset) in black, gold and… Marsala

Top is based on vintage Vogue 9531 – circa early 60s. The only additions are: I have sewn the detachable cuffs on to sleeves and lined the collar with gold satin.

Skirt is based on McCall’s vintage 5599 pattern printed in 1960 – I have reduced the pleat depth due to lack of fabric!! and shortened the length considerably.

Material Notes

wool fabric with lace and glitter overlayer; gold satin




Spring, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Satin, Wool

    This looks Fab irina, It’s really modern and saucy with the corset peeking out. You have styled it so well and your photos are gorgeous. Love your boots and bag x

      Thank you, Mary. You can still find that bag in Accessorize/ Monsoon. The suede boots… are an Italian brand, Vicino, however I got them in a shop on Romanian seaside resort previous summer.
