Here's a very fine vintage French skirt by Theoreme, that's never been worn -- and the color couldn't be more perfect for this spring. The plastic hangtag is still on one of the front belt loops. Acquired by the former owner at a high-end shop in Europe during the mid-1990s, it's a "trumpet" skirt - gored to flare widely at the bottom, where it segments into sexy panels that float apart in motion to show flashes of shapely leg.

This is marked French size 36, about a US 2-4, but it's very small at the waist for that size. The crucial measurement is the waistband, which is 2 inches wide and only 25 inches long. A lot of us are that small at the natural waistline, but not at the point 2 inches above it, where the rib cage begins to be involved (which is why I'm not keeping this, myself). The button could be moved a bit, but not much. By the time it reaches the hip, the skirt has flared to about 40 inches wide and at the hem it's enormous, with slits about 9 1/2" tall. Length is ballerina (34 inches long).

The label reads THEOREME PARIS MADE IN FRANCE and a tag below that reads FABRIQUE IN FRANCE 60% LIN 40% VISCOSE. It's without lining, since the weight of extra fabric would spoil the drape.

If you're tiny enough through the middle to wear this, it will be a major fashion find: a classic you can enjoy forever. The price is less than a third of what it cost originally.
