For the same reason it’s hard to find complete ensembles, Victorian and Edwardian skirts are a rare find, much harder to find than the bodices and blouses that were worn with them. The reason is simple, they were dragging on the ground and received much more wear than other clothing items from that period. Once worn out they were often cut up to be recycled into something else.
