Mermaid Mexican Circle Skirt

Availability: In stock

$102.00

* Required Fields

The Mermaid Mexican Circle Skirt takes inspiration from one of the most iconic styles of vintage clothing- The Mexican circle skirt. Hand-painted Mexican circle skirts were a popular and unique style of clothing in the 1950s but due to the design being painted rather than printed on, not to mention the passage of 60 years, vintage Mexican skirts in good to excellent condition have become a rare, highly sought-after, and costly garment. This skirt features a Mermaid border print designed by artist Stephanie Buscema exclusively for Pinup Girl Clothing that is printed on the sateen fabric to ensure that it stays beautiful for years to come! This skirt also has side pockets, and true to the original Mexican skirts, the waist is adjustable with three buttons and ties at the back. We suggest ordering down if you're in between sizes.

The skirt is so beautiful with a gorgeous print. It fits wonderfully, although I sometimes miss my pocket and end up with my hand inside the skirt. Fabulous design and I'm so glad I added it to my cart on a whim! (Posted on 8/27/2015)

I'm a bit of a sucker for mermaids so this beautiful skirt was calling me to buy it!

This was my first PUG purchase, so I was a bit unsure of the fit; according to the size chart I would be somewhere between a M and a L.
However, this was the perfect design for me to try as the skirt is adjustable. I went for the M in the end and it fits my 30in waist perfectly when the 2nd and 3rd buttons are fastened.

The design is wonderfully unique and goes well with so many of colours so I've had loads of opportunities to wear it. I feel special every time I wear it!

I only wish the pockets were a little deeper and somehow attached to the front of the skirt as I have to be careful when putting things in them as it's easy to miss the pockets (I'm considering putting some snap fasteners on the pockets to remedy this!).

Living in the UK, the price works out fairly expensive due to the extra import costs but I feel it's worth it! (I was very impressed at how fast my parcel arrived!) (Posted on 8/12/2015)
Magical Mermaid PERFECTION!Review by Jade

this skirt is amazing! the fit is super flattering and the skirt is so full you don't even need a petticoat under it! i love the colours in the design, it's very versatile so you can wear it with so many different tops, sweaters or cardigans. i like to pair it with a blue/white nautical striped sweater and a cute mermaid brooch. the skirt does up nicely on the waist at the front with a lovely feature that also lets you tie a pretty bow or knot at the back.

I had read that it was quite complicated to fasten but it's not that tricky and once you've done it once or twice you'll easily get the hang of it. it took me a while to keep double checking whenever i tried to put something in the pockets but after a day of wearing it i just naturally checked to make sure i hadn't dropped stuff on the floor (i dropped my lipbalm the first time i tried, woops!)

i live in the Isle of Man, UK, and i still can't believe how quickly the skirt arrived, i was wearing it only 3 days after placing my order.

5/5 for this beautiful and utterly perfect skirt! (Posted on 8/6/2015)

I love the wrap skirts--the adjustable waist band is amazing. I have the M, but wish I had the S. I have a 27-28'' waist. That being said M still fits on the tightest button, but I have the Matador wrap skirt in S and it fits a little better. Stephanie Buscema is crazy talented and I love her artwork! I would love if PUG offered wrap skirts in other prints. (Posted on 6/6/2015)

This skirt is one of my favourites. At first it is a bit hard to figure out how to wear the skirt, because there are buttons in the front and then you have to tie it in the back. However, when you get the hang of it, it is quite easy to wear.
I would suggest sizing down. Normally I wear a medium in almost all PUG skirts, but I bought a small and it fits perfect! (Posted on 4/26/2015)

I purchased this while away on holiday from an international stockist. I was kind of sceptical at first about the whole button and tie thing but now that I've had it for a while I love it. I like how depending on how many buttons I do up I can move it around a bit. Does take some getting used to always get things in the pockets as they are very easy to miss. Otherwise I love the print and the colours, and as much as I wish I'd gotten a burlesque print skirt this one is more useful and appropriate to wear around. (Posted on 9/16/2014)
Hard to put on but beautiful!Review by Harlow Harrow

Bought this at the yard sale this summer and a 2x fits me, when i usually wear a 3x in skirts.

It is very hard to put on though! I need assistance. Because of where the design is, you can't hem it (short people alert) but i wore it pretty high on the waist and it was good length with flats, perfect with heels.

For those interested, it first buttons at the waist, and then you wrap the rest of the fabric around and tie it in a bow so it stays on. It has small pockets which is a plus! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

MAKE MORE OF THESE SKIRTS OKAY?Review by sandy

this skirt is AWESOME for a few reasons-
lets go with the first: um hello the Mermaid print is freaking amazing and I sincerely hope PUG partners again with Stephanie to produce more awesome items.

second: this skirt is a wrap skirt-I too was confuddled by this idea but let me tell you, it can actually fit a variety of sizes because of it. I had many thoughts of it not fitting me since the max measurements are smaller to my measurements, however because the design and 3 buttons to use it can actually accommodate my waist size being a few inches over.

truth, the pockets are tiny and I don't think are worth putting in if they're that small to begin with.

otherwise? it's awesome. construction is awesome. print is awesome. fit is awesome.
make more please! maybe with cats next time?>!? (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I LOVE the mermaid print it is absolutely wonderful and I love that there are pockets. I wish they made this print in a jenny skirt though, to put it on you do up buttons in the front and then wrap the bow and tie it up in the back. I was so worried the first few times I wore it that if the bow came undone it would fall off and everyone would see my bits. thankfully that never happened. but with the way its constructed there is an open space on each side where the pockets are and sometimes I miss the pockets and end up dropping things on the ground.it sounds confusing sorry but if you buy the skirt which I still totally recommend you do you will understand lol. after wearing it several times I love love love it even more and just look past the few odd construction details.

also I am a 30 waist and normally wear a large in PUG I bought a large but wish I had bought a medium to fit more snug. but with the three buttons it still fits ok. (Posted on 8/22/2014)

I fell in love with this skirt the moment I saw it and was not disappointed.
Generous fit with adjustable buttons. It is a gorgeous fabric that floats with you and the colours are so vibrant. I've had to re-tie the back a couple of times when wearing but am slowly mastering it so it is tight enough, yet still comfortable to sit in. The pockets are a bonus too! I've worn this out a few times now and have had compliment after compliment on it. (Posted on 7/22/2014)

I bought this skirt as soon as it came out on the site. I had been waiting for it quite a while and was not disappointed.
I have a small waist and the PUG clothing is the only one that fits me just right. The size XS is perfect for my 24.5" waist!
The quality is amazing, the fabric is perfect and so is the length. I love it has pockets too.
My only concern is the way it fastens around the waist. Being a dancer I do worry the sash will become loose after a while but then again, that's probably just me being paranoid.
Overall I absolutely love this dress. The print is even brighter and more beautiful in person. Definitely a great buy! (Posted on 7/19/2014)
