The story:
We are admirers of the Lanz brand of vintage clothing. Now defunct, they originated from Austria and used to make the most fabulous folk clothing before venturing out into good quality everyday clothing with the most fun prints!

And this is our second Lanz find, and so vastly different they are!

This comes in a beautiful paisley print in a fun 60s mix of blues, greens, oranges and yellows and reindeer silhouettes having a walk throughout the fabric. And the material is so light it is almost ethereal.
 
It comes with a matching fabric belt and a lovely scoop back. Just a quick note that there seems to be a slight quirk with the zipper. The end of the zipper is left unsewn onto the fabric, but I suspect it is to keep the flare shape of the skirt portion and there is a snap button to keep the opening close anyway (please see the last 2 photos) so it doesn't affect how it wears. And as this is quite translucent, a full-length slip would be recommended.

Pinned?: No.
