Vintage Find – Japanese Novelty Print Skirt

I love clothing with illustrations, cheeky patterns and humorous prints. The circle skirt of the 1950s really took a step into the world of novelty with adorable prints ranging from animals to foods to cultural scenes.
Take this 1950s Japanese novelty print skirt. The golden brown serves as a muted background for a bevy of flowers, streams, foliage, birds and Japanese people taking a cruise around the bay. If I wore this skirt, I think people might find me odd because i would be staring at my lap all day.

I like how the design isn’t too eastern. It is a good balance of influence but still has a somewhat western overall feel.

Thank you so much for the shout-out, Miss S! It’s such a fantastic print and I totally agree with the above comment~ it’s crazy enough, but not a too over the top asian print!

I think it is so unique Kim. Very different from most of the Asian themed novelty prints I’ve ever seen. Good score!
