Mermaid Mexican Circle Skirt

Availability: In stock

$98.00
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.

Stunning fabric and print by what is great about this skirt is the way it fastens. It allows for a great versatility in fit (especially great if your weight fluctuates) I bought the xl when I had a 34" waist I probably could of sized down. I'm currently sat at a 32.5" waist and due to the way the skirt buttons it still fits great. (Posted on 4/6/2016)

I love the idea of an adjustable waisted skirt, and here it is! I really do love everything about this skirt, the colours are brilliant especially against the dark background, the design is adorable, mermaids, fish in all colours, sea horses and star fish! Whats not to like! This is also a very versatile skirt that can be worn with most tops in summer, but also sweaters in winter, so its bright in summer and goes well with darks in winter. Great quality materials and workmanship as always with pug (Posted on 12/7/2015)

This skirt, this skirt, this skirt! Stephanie Buscema's print on this skirt is exquisite. Also wonderful are the bright colors, the black background, the little green fleck of kelp dotting down to the larger print of the happy purple haired mermaids, and sea-life. Paired with a black top, it almost has the appearance of a dress. I wore this to Bimbo's in San Francisco, a club famous for its mermaid behind the bar, and the restroom attendant kept teasing me all night that I needed to give her my skirt as a tip. Cool lady, but I love this skirt too much! :) :) :) I'm rebuilding my wardrobe, and this skirt is I think my favorite. (Posted on 9/16/2015)

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)
