Other people's UFOs

A month or two ago, I bought some chunks of fabric from a charity shop. I only got around to looking at them recently and found one piece was a partly made skirt.

There were marks for darts in the top & a zip attached, so I took on the project and finished it - sticking to the original marks as near as possible (but still making it fit!).

The final item is a slightly a-line skirt - enough of a dome for a stiff petticoat - though the waist is a little stick-out-y, a corset soon fixes the problem.

Who made the original? Why did it never get finished?

I wonder if I wear it out in town if someone will ID it as their own...?
