Circus Sideshow, Georges Seurat, Mini Skirt

Regular price $44.00 Sale

This mini skirt is made from fabric custom-printed with Circus Sideshow (Parade de Cirque), an oil painting by Georges Seurat circa 1887-88.

To make the mini skirt, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The skirt has an elastic waistband — it's meant to sit on your hips. It's super-comfortable, made of a smooth 82% polyester/18% spandex microfiber yarn with four-way stretch. Mid-thigh length. Printed, cut, and sewn in USA.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art describes this painting's subject matter:

It represents the parade, or sideshow, of the Circus Corvi at the annual Gingerbread Fair, held in eastern Paris around the place de la Nation, in spring 1887. Sideshows were staged outside the circus tent, for free, to entice passersby to purchase tickets.
