As you know I adore linen...I adore florals...and I particularly adore Sanderson furnishing prints
(or prints of a similar bouquet)
I love how you can turn a practical piece of linen into a wearable painting,
a statement kind of skirt.
So this is our next project
here at The Linen Garden.....
Designs, like the vintage linens and cotton sateens are limited, and, like the bags,
will be bespoke, individual makings.
There is just one straight forward design.
An 'A' line shape with lovely flattering side pockets and zip at the back.
The great little practicality of an 'A' line shape is that if (like mine)
your waist line changes slightly over the months like the seasons,
you can pull it down a little on your hips.
The inside of the pockets can be made
using a complimentary floral as too can the waistband.
You can also request a length too if the fabric is available to suit.
Some prefer on the knee,
I like a midi length and some commissions have been requested
to the small of the ankle to make a lovely evening sateen skirt for a festive soiree....
Please note that these fabrics are furnishing florals
and therefore will have a more sturdier feel and hang as a denim.
Some of the sateens will hang softer.
This will be detailed in the shop as Heavy, Medium, Soft.
So starting this week fabrics will be placed on sale over at The Linen Garden shop.
All you need to do is choose your fabric
and add this to the checkout (prices start at £70).
You then need to choose if you would like it lined
and again add this to the checkout (an additional £25)..
please note that I choose the liner depending on current stock
and colour palette of the chosen floral design.
Then simply pay and email me your waist size
(you may wish to email your hip size too).
I also need to know your required length if applicable...
there may be an additional charge for this if it is passed mid-calf length.
As each skirt is made by hand, here in the studio, making and delivery may take up to 5 weeks.
International orders are welcome.
So, if you have any questions please either email me at
message me over at Facebook
or leave a comment below.....
Here is the first option of the first fabrics that is now available HERE.
I currently have enough of this Sanderson sateen "Fiorella" to make approx 5 bespoke skirts.
