Heaven to Betsy! Look What We Found Now....a double flip it!
The 1950s had their short shorts, the 60s had their preppy bermuda shorts and the early 70s had hot pants, later turning into culottes in the late 70s. However, before the short lived fad of the hot pants in the early 70s, there came on the scene a short skirt with attached shorts underneath known as "skorts." Grade school boys were really surprised when on "flip it" day they would throw up a girls skirt and see shorts underneath!
Here is a skort from around 1970 that will be on Ebay Auction at Vintage Clothesline beginning Sunday evening, June 3rd.
This 1970s skort is unique because it has a flap in the front and in the back.
A double flipper!
Scanning through an old 1972 Spring/Summer Sears catalog, we found similar fashions.
Not stopping there, however, no siree, we rummaged through our vintage pattern inventory and came up with some more early 70s skirt/short combos which, by the way, will be on sale at our A Stitch In Time Vintage Sewing site very soon.
With a look of a skirt but the ruggedness of a pair of shorts, the skorts made their brief arrival in the 1970s with a "short" revival in the 80s.
