This lovely skort has the perfect touch of equestrian charm, and this design was one of The Vested Gentress’ signature prints called Heads and Tails, with the front featuring a row of horses facing forward, and the back featuring the backsides of the horses with applique bows on their tales. So very quaint! Started in 1961 in Valley Forge, PA by Fritz “Bud” Jackson Jr and his wife Naomi, this brand created a following with their whimsical hand screen printed fabrics featuring Bud’s drawings. After Bud’s passing in 1985 the Vested Gentress closed their door, but fans still find amazing items like this skort on the vintage market.The Vested Gentress’ fabrics were hand screen printed in its factory located in Trappe, Pennsylvania and because the fabrics were hand screened, small batches and specialty orders of prints could be made. This accounts for the huge variety of Vested Gentress prints that were produced. The earliest Vested Gentress labels featured a woman dressed in equestrian clothing. Later Vested Gentress labels featured a taller, more slender woman dressed in Equestrian clothing with a taller hat and the addition of a riding crop.
