I post this for a fellow textile enthusiast and member of the forum - Leonore Blackwood. Regards, Iain Glad you said this, Iain, as I was worried that some nasty spammer had hijacked your identity, Pamela

I have a very old Miao skirt from Songtao up on Ebay at present. I bought this in l996 and it was the only one of its kind I ever saw for sale.I would be interested if any member has further information about this skirt.



Best regards,
Lenore

Hi Ann,
I think I lost my first post.
Really interesting to see your skirt. Iain said he had seen two examples, rather more worn than mine, in Taiwan.
Your skirt is certainly much richer looking and on examining mine I wonder if it might have once been longer and wider too. It could very well have been salvaged from a very worn larger skirt. It is unusually modest in size for a Miao adult's skirt.
Thank you for your reply.
Lenore

Hi Leonore (and Ann)

Hope you don't mind but I have copied your image from the Ebay link and attached it to your first post. Makes the discussion and comparison with Ann's skirt much easier and turns this into a more informative thread for forum members.

It looks to me as if a bit of your skirt may have been removed from the bottom. The embroidered motifs look a little truncated although, comparing with Ann's, not a lot.

I wonder if your skirt is a child's skirt not an adult's? It does not seem in the photo as thickly pleated (or to provide such a big circumference) and it could explain the much shorter length. It might well have been made from an adult's skirt where the best parts were kept and recycled. The bottom edges of a skirt might well get worn. Children usually wore/wear miniature versions of adult clothing. It was also very much the custom to recycle good parts of used textiles especially where considerable labour had originally been put into creating the first textile item or the fabrics were precious/expensive.

My thanks to you both for this nice little 'exercise' to tease us!
