Of all the lovely vintage fashions being stitched up by contemporary seamstresses- the swing skirts, the wiggle dresses, the cigarette pants- I don't think I've seen much interest in the poodle skirt, except maybe at Halloween.
That being said, my mom made me a poodle skirt when I was in a sixth grade lip syncing contest in which my two best friends and I emphatically mouthed the words to the Shangri-Las' 1964 "The Leader of the Pack." Unfortunately, we lost out to a group of girls who performed Janet Jackson's "Nasty Boys," but wearing my skirt the rest of the day, I felt like a winner.
