    **BASED ON CUSTOMER FEEDBACK, WE DISCOVERED A GRADING ERROR IN THE CLYDE BILLOW SKIRT PATTERN - BUT WE ARE FIXING IT ASAP! THE CLYDE BILLOW SKIRT IN MIDWEIGHT LINEN WILL RETURN SHORTLY WITH IMPROVED FIT. Once it's back, if you are unsure what size to order please email support and we'll get you squared away!**

    A warm weather friendly version of our popular winter skirt. We took the Clyde pattern - easy, high-rise elastic waist and large, crescent-shaped side pockets - and adapted it into a full, voluminous skirt. The beauty here is in the structure and shape - it's interesting without being unwearable. Practicality is key here - the pockets are large and perfect for phone, wallet, keys and there is plenty of movement to curl up on the floor with a book or hustle through the street to grab a cab.

    Pair with a fitted top for a nostalgic, hourglass silhouette or with something oversized for an interesting ultra modern shape.

    Cut from a sturdy, incredibly durable linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It will only soften and improve with age, a beautiful benefit of clothing meant for a life fully-lived.

    Midweight Linen

    100% Linen

    This is a medium weight, sturdy, structured, incredibly durable broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It has luxurious body and weight, and the strength to stand up to years of daily wear. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. It is also one of my favorite fabrics aesthetically - possessing such charm and texture in its variation, with a natural sheen that doesn't feel at all pretentious.

    Available in four classic colors - a warm "Ivory," a natural "Flax," a rich "Navy," and a deep "Black."

    Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry low. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles, straighten neckline, sleeves, and hem. Will press to a crisp, smooth finish.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Available in sizes XS-XL. See our size chart to determine your size.

    Intended to have a full, swingy silhouette. Elastic waist allows for some wiggle room between sizing, but waist should be snug to keep the skirt from slipping down. Choose a size based on your waist measurement, as the hip is free. Midi length.

    A warm weather version of our CWC Clyde Billow Skirt! We took sizing feedback into consideration here, it was running fairly large so we sized down a full size - a CWC XS would be a current S. We also lengthened the pattern by a few inches for more of a midi look. We’ll update the CWC pattern when we relaunch that collection! The feel in linen is similar to that of the raw silk - not as structured as the cotton canvas.

    Shayla (short hair) is 5' 9.5" with a 33" bust, 26" waist, and 36" hip. She is wearing the S.

    Renee (long hair) is 5' 9.5" with a 33" bust, 25" waist and 36" hip. She is wearing the S.
