    How would you describe this pattern?

    Here's the label - anyone familiar with it?

    The fabric feels like a heavy acetate twill. Since this is a prime innerwear-as-outerwear piece, would you list it both as lingerie and as a skirt?

    Thanks for your help with any or all of these questions!

    I think we should describe it as Timber's. ;)

    The pink ones especially with the yellow centers remind me of
    licorice allsorts....especially on that black background.

    Very funky drama thing going on there!

  4. Wow, that's great! It's kinda Bridgette Bardoe (I know, I butchered her name). I think I would list it as both a skirt and a slip since it is heavy enough. It's like sex kitten meets op art mod. I would totally wear it as a skirt. I don't think I have helped much though!! And yes, it also reminds me of Good n' Plentys!!

    Hot! Looks great as a skirt. Seems a waste to hide this baby underneath something, but imagine when someone gets a flash of that undergarment!

    I can see the difficulty in describing the pattern. Well, it looks like candy to everyone and it's fully mid-century modern, how about "Atomic Bon-Bon"? That might pique my interest. ;)

  6. Soooooo adorable!! For an alternate look, maybe you could photograph it layered over a solid black lace hemmed slip. Most slips really are too sheer to be worn alone. Isn't that layered slip look supposed to be "in"?

    Thanks everyone!

    It's up - and hopefully up, up and away :)
