I was trying to design a skirt that would let me use up some square pieces of the popular “Equus” linen print. So I added triangles of solid linen to each side to create a circular skirt that is sewn to an elastic-waist yoke. What’s great is that it can be worn sideways as well so the print panel is off the hips. Call to see what vintage prints are in stock or order it in a solid color linen $110

This pant was the first garment in my repertoire when I started in 2000, and remains a staple. They are cut in such a way that they don’t need to be baggy to be comfortable. Drawstring waist, and long straight leg. The pocket is a slit in the side seam, with a patch behind, so there’s no wadded-up pocket flapping inside. Heavy/mid- weight linen only. $115
This is one of my favorite skirts- not only is it cute, it’s like putting together a puzzle to make it. The lower portion of it is literally one piece that starts at the center front point of the yoke, stitches around the hip, continues around the back, crosses over itself in the front before dropping down to the hemline. Knee-length, elastic waist. $95
My biggest seller ever! The wide hem is chic, but the real plus is the breeze they generate as you walk! The elastic waist is cut slim so there’s not a lot of fabric around your waist or hips- just the ankles, which creates a triangle with the apex where you want it- the waist. Great with every top and jacket I do.
This cute skirt was designed as a way to use scraps that I refused to waste created by all the bias-cut garments. Mitering the pieces puts them into a bias cut that is flattering and comfortable. I only cut the multi-color version once a year, because it takes so long to lay out the scraps and match them up. The 3-color version can be custom-ordered anytime.
