Inspired by traditional folk skirts, developed into a midi style. Made from deadstock linen with vintage organza tape ribbon detailing around ¾ down. Interfaced waistband and traditional open front with a simple tie waist in an orange tape ribbon made from recycled cotton yarn*. For optional vintage hook and eye or vintage popper fastenings to be added to the front opening, please add a note to your order (no extra cost).
The fabric has been pre-washed to avoid shrinkage, but to ensure you care for your garment please wash by hand with cold – lukewarm water. Do not wring the garment when wet, and let it dry on the line. Iron on a medium-high heat with lots of steam, but avoid ironing over the organza ribbon detailing. Linen creases easily, so hanging this garment with a clip coat-hanger will help to keep it crease free.
* This yarn is sourced from YarnYarn where the money goes directly to the artisans (women’s cooperatives and small communities in Rural India) to create a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment, whilst keeping ancient crafting traditions alive.
