The long felt, circle skirt fell close to the knees, and it twirled around as teens did the Lindy Hop or the Twist on the dance floor. Poodle skirts did not have to have poodles on them. Other kinds of appliqués, such a flamingos, telephones, and flowers. They were originally designed by Juli Lynne Charlot, but were sold to teens in department stores everywhere by the mid 1950’s.
