Cotton Short Skirt – History
Drawstring skirts are probably one of the earliest clothing forms ever worn by humans. Originally a garment worn both by men and women, skirts made from animal hides or leaves are believed to have been worn by people even in prehistoric times. With the invention of the loom and weaving, cloth soon became the preferred material to make skirts out of, and woven skirts were used in Egypt, Mesopotamia and even Central Europe. This trend continued through the Middle Ages, though further enhancements in methods of tailoring made the skirt an item of clothing worn more by women than men. Here, the drawstring skirt probably made its first appearance, with the ease of tying and adjustable waistline being much desired features. The 19th century saw a burst in styles with different waistlines ranging from just below the bust to the natural waist.
Credit for the modern skirt goes to Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel who designed a wider, shorter skirt that ended just below the knee in 1920. This allowed women to move freely and was much more practical to wear for day-to-day activities. From here, the length and style of drawstring skirts began to vary based on several factors – world wars reducing the amount of cloth being available, the liberation of women and subsequent freedom of choice, for example. Christian Dior introduced new styles in 1947 and Mary Quant did the same in the 1960s. Probably the most famous example of a skirt in pop culture is the infamous picture of Marylin Monroe.
