A vintage tartan skirt

I’m taking some much-needed time off this week and today I went op-shopping (to non-Antipodeans op-shopping = charity chopping). I haven’t been op-shopping for ages and ages and I got some fantastic bargains including this gorgeous tartan skirt.


I could tell from the tag and the zip that it was very old but I wasn’t sure how old because I’d never heard of the label before. I Googled it when I got home and it turns out this is a brand from the 1960s called “Sportaville” and made in London.


The skirt is older than I am and in perfect condition. It has been very well-looked after and probably never worn by the looks of it. I will certainly wear it. I absolutely love it and it’s pure wool so perfect for a Scottish winter.
