Skirt Lifter CoverCarole has continued to collect these very attractive and unusual items that were designed to keep ladies’ skirts out of the dirt and muck of the streets. She now has a vast collection of skirt lifters and has produced a book on this fascinating subject.  The book retails at £18.50 plus p&p £1.50.  It is available directly from Wolds Publishing or from eBay or Amazon.

Bridget McConnel writing in the diary entry for March 2016 on the Thimble Society web site states: “The book is excellent, well researched, presented with photos, drawings and old advertising catalogues.  These delightful items were used to hitch up a woman’s long skirt to facilitate dancing and all sports.  There is a huge variation of design and materials.  Enjoy the spring with this delicious book as your companion when out hunting.”
