The Long (and Short) of It: The Madcap History of the Skirt
From its humble prehistoric beginnings, the skirt has had a perilous journey – subject to accolades, ridicule, even coming under fire from the Supreme Court. Sometimes liberating, sometimes restricting, but always inspiring and captivating, this unassuming garment has not only changed throughout time but changed history itself. Sassy and illuminating, The Long (and Short) of It uncovers the evolution of the skirt and the women (and men) who have worn them. By Ali Basye. Illustrations by Leela Corman.
