1950s Novelty Print Skirt

Pattern: None. Simple panel skirt.
Meaurements: 29" Waist (US 8, roughly). 28" long, mid-calf.
Available on ebay HERE
I ran across this beautiful Japanese them fabric some years ago, but could never decide what to do with it. It's a bold repeat print of Japanese traditional figures, such as Geishas, Samurai, courtesans, and Kabuki actors. Obviously not very appropriate to any of my more historical applications. So, I decided to make something in the current 1950s novelty print skirt fad that's been going on.

It is just two panels (the patterns ran one way), with the closure at the side with a planet and glass buttons, also vintage.
