Madeleine Haskell, Magician's Assistant, Wearer of Juli Lynne Charlot Skirts



A few months ago I got an email from a woman who had found my article on circle skirts to be of interest. In the late 1940s and into the 1950s, her mother had worn Juli Lynne Charlot ensembles on stage in her role as assistant to her husband, magician Robert Haskell. Juli Lynne was one of the great decorators of circle skirts, and today her skirts, tops and accessories are prized collectibles.

Wow, what a great story. You never know who is reading your blog! What fun having magician parents. And it's very cool that she held onto the special skirt.
