I found a fabric that is so beautiful that I can stare at it for hours.
The texture is soft yet sturdy. The pattern is simple but interesting. And the color is perfect.
Introducing the Simone Skirt.
(with pockets. i heart pockets.)
She is made of a substantial cotton and linen canvas that gives her a nice, sturdy shape but is soft enough for movement.
Because I have a girl who likes to be on the move.
The faded rose pink is so romantic and sweet, but the metallic tiles give this skirt just the right amount of edge.
Pretty and feminine . . .
But tough and ready for adventure.
This skirt can be paired with . . .
. . . .a dressy cardigan and metallic gold ballet flats for an important event.
. . . a denim shirt tucked in (or untucked) for a day of adventure.
. . . or with a simple white tank and flip flops for a walk around the block.
The really amazing thing about this fabric is that it can be paired with boots and tights in the cooler months. Love some versatility.
But here is what really sets Simone apart from the other skirts.
Her glitzy gold exposed zipper. What a knockout!
(Don't worry -- there's a fabric placket that keeps that zipper from touching skin)
It's true I can only make a limited amount or this girl starts to feel neglected . . .
So you want to know how to get one?
Here's the scoop:
I will make the skirt in girls' sizes 2-14.
Thursday night. May 21st. 8:00PM CST.
Set your alarm and get your spouse, neighbor, mom, or babysitter to watch the kids so you can lock yourself in the bathroom with your laptop. Not that I have ever done that before or anything . . .
As much as I would love to have these skirts pre-made and ready to ship, I decided that doesn't make sense. I will take custom orders that will ship within 2-3 weeks. What does that mean?
It means you can purchase the skirt and then send me your wonder girl's measurements -- just her normal skirt size along with waist and the length you want the skirt to be. Since the skirt is fitted, it actually needs to, well, fit really, really well or it will "look all wonky" as my Meemers says. Don't have a tape measure? Just use a piece of string and then measure that with a ruler. Simple enough, right?
The only method of payment I can accept right now is Paypal, so set up an account if you haven't already:).
I would love to sew for you all but quantities are limited. Thanks so much for understanding my tiny business plan and for being awesome customers!
By the way, this little photo shoot took place on a very important day.
It was my birthday :)
And a beach day along with a Baker Boys' cupcake was all I ever dreamed of . . .
*The fabulous denim shirt is Circo from Target. (I'm not even kidding! How great is that?)
The turquoise sandals are Mimi's new favorites and are from Tom's.
The awesome bearded guy is courtesy of Baker Boys in Highland Park, IL. Memphis friends, think of it as the boy version of Muddy's. You get me, don't you?
