1950s-style Jane Quotes skirt from BOB

Jane letter skirt

Dawn O'Porter's recent TV show, This Old Thing, attempted to convince the UK population of the joys of vintage (as if we needed any persuasion!). She's followed up by opening BOB, an online shop selling original vintage along some especially designed repro pieces. The collection including this charming 1950s-style Jane Quotes skirt.  


Truth be told, we're not entirely convinced by the whole range. It's very expensive, even in comparison to original period pieces. However, the skirts are a definite highlight. Each takes its cue from the conversational prints of the 1950s, with patterns designed by Retro To Go favourite Karen Mabon. This particular design is decorated with quotes taken from the books Jane Eyre, A Room of One's Own and Orange is Not The Only Fruit. Simply accessory with specs and a twin set for your 1950s earnest teen look. 

Then it has also got that full-skirted 1950s shape. The skirt is made from stretch cotton, fastening with a period appropriate metal zip. There are even side pockets. 

It's priced at £180.
