Russian Doll

I bought this skirt when I was about 16. I still remember the shopping trip because a school friend of mine had come down for a holiday on the Gold Coast. We had met up and gone shopping, and I remember we bought matching skirts. Probably, thinking back on my goofy teenage ways, we bought matching outfits.

The embroidery reminds me of Russian Matryoshka dolls (most commonly though incorrectly referred to as Babushka dolls). I have always loved the rich rainbow of colours in the skirt, but I must say I’m thrilled that it still fits me! It has actually been years since I’ve pulled it out to wear, and I’m glad that I had the foresight not to put it in an OP shop bin during one of my wardrobe clean-outs.
