POODLE SKIRT HISTORY

 



 Poodle skirts have had a huge impact on women’s fashion since the 1950’s. It all started, in 1947, when Juli Charlot needed something to wear to a party held in Los Angeles. She couldn’t sew but she did have some felt that was wide enough to cut a complete circle without having to sew anything together. She then cut a hole in the center, just wide enough for her waist, and appliquéd Christmas trees to it. Needless to say, everyone LOVED the skirt! 

After the party, Juli needed to sell the skirt to raise money to go to design school. It was bought faster than you can say “poodle skirt” by a boutique owner that later asked her to make more skirts but put a poodle appliqué on the skirt instead of Christmas trees as the Poodle was a French symbol for fashion and snobbery, just like the little dogs we all know! 

Juli made and designed more skirts, accenting them with various types of appliqués but non stuck as well as the classic poodle. She always said that she wanted her clothing to tell a story, and these classic poodle skirts defiantly shout their story aloud. These skirts went on to sell for high prices, marking them as a high-end piece of clothing that not all teens could afford. But that didn’t stop the girls from wanting the high fashion skirt that is still in demand today.

Like Juli, we cut our full circle poodle skirts out of felt! Though we do sew elastic waistbands and the looping leashes onto our skirts to make them durable for all twirling and jumping, our adorable poodle skirts can’t get any more original! And our poodle skirts elastic waistband and wide cinch belt accentuate that tiny waist just like women in the 1950’s always sought for.

Be ready to look your best with our vast selection of poodle skirts, in a wide array of sizes from extra small to 4XL. We've got pink, black, red, teal, light pink, hot pink, shocking pink, blue, lime, green, yellow, and purple skirts to match with any assortment.

One look at our poodle skirts and you’ll be humming a classic rock’n’roll song. Whether it’s Elvis, Buddy Holly or Jerry Lee Lewis, there’s no denying that our colorful skirts are destined for dancing and they will get you twirling and tapping your toes.  

Lovingly handmade by seamstresses here in the United States, our skirts are made from 100% acrylic felt for an authentic 1950s feeling. Our poodle appliqués have been professionally embroidered and are sewn onto the skirts for long lasting wear. An elastic waistband ensures that all shaking, twisting and hopping will be done in comfort! 

If you’re looking to add something extra to your skirt, like many women have for ages, we offer crinoline slips in a variety of colors. Worn underneath a poodle skirt they will add the perfect amount of bounce and volume to your outfit. The outer-skirt of our petticoats have 5 tiers of nylon net with matching satin binding on each tier. Underskirt has 4 tiers of nylon organza to prevent scratchiness! Slips can be purchased separately or as part of our assembled outfits.
