Dressing for joy - such a playful print by Australian artist and icon Ken Done.
Connie is your new go-to skirt, named after my husband’s Grandmother who had a casual elegance & love of quality clothes that is perfectly expressed in this classic and comfortable piece.
This simple and versatile skirt is such a great investment, one that that you'll enjoy wearing casually or dressed up, that easily goes with lots of colours. The soft elastic waist can be worn high with a top tucked in or lower towards the hips for a more casual look. The midi length is flattering on everyone and suits both flats or heels.
Of course you’ll find pockets in the side seams too!
Cotton/Poly. Genuine vintage fabric in excellent preloved condition.
Cold handwash using mild phosphate free detergent by hand or on delicates cycle. Hot iron but looks lovely left to dry naturally with a softly rumpled natural texture. Limited edition. Handmade in Sydney’s inner west by a small business.
SIZE & FIT INFO
There is quite a bit of flexibility with the sizing due to the elastic waist and where you like it to sit on the torso. I've now seen this style on lots of lovely varied body shapes and it is running true to size. First Model is size 10, taller than average and wears the Small. If you have bought this style in the past, the cut is the same but the waistband is now more more generous. Second model is size 14 and wears the L here but the M also looks great on her.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite skirt and compare your measurements to those below. Note that the waist measurement is when the skirt is flat with the fabric gathered in by the elastic, not fully stretched out. There’s much more space/fabric when it’s stretched, to easily glide over the hips :
