  • Description

    This is the first skirt we ever released. I feel like skirts can quickly become too feminine, and I thought that the skirt I would design would be so utterly simple that it couldn't be hard to find elsewhere. However, I realized that I myself couldn't find what I was picturing, so I worked to create the most pared down version of this garment - nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. It has a midi length to show some leg but also to provide modest coverage, a generous hem to add luxe weight and body to the fabric, and just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but to not become bulky at the waist.

    Wear this at home with a soft wool sweater and socks, then swap out the socks for suede heels and head to dinner. You can also pair this with an easy tee and sneakers, and throw this on in the city for a brisk walk.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash and do not tumble dry.

    *Garment measurements were taken flat, so double where necessary. All measurements are approximate, +/- a tolerance that is to be expected with handmade clothing.

    Natalie’s waist places her in a Medium while her hips place her in a Large. To demonstrate a slimmer fit, Natalie wears a Medium in our product photos. Please note that sizing down may cause quicker wear and tear on a garment. If you too are in between sizes and intend to wear your pant regularly, then we suggest sizing up, particularly in Silk Crepe.

Beautiful piece!

Absolutely love this skirt. Looks so pulled together with a black turtleneck and is beyond comfortable. Could wear it every day (and sometimes do)!

Fluffy but comfortable

I wear the black silk version several times a week, and thought a linen would be good for a change. The same size in linen was a bit bigger in the waist. My measurements put me between S and M. The olive color and the voluminousness of the skirt didn’t quite fit my style. Might try it again in black, for cooler weather.

Again, I love it.

I bought one size smaller than usual and was so happy. I was concerned about the volume of fabric, but the smaller size still had movement with just a little less gathers. Love it! I'm a customer forever.

Love the feel of wearing this skirt

It's folds are so graceful and flattering without being too like dirndl skirts of old. I have no problems walking and I have a long stride.
