Our vintage-fabric-womenswear is made using vintage fabric remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero impact on the environment and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this lightweight velvet fabric (circa 1980s) to make 11 skirts! Made in NYC by our legendary seamstress. BTW our chelsea skirts run smaller than our usual sizes, but this brown velvet has a bit of give. For a perfect fit, measure the smallest part of your waist— these best fit a 24 inch waist in XS, 26 in S, 28 in M, 30 in L, and 32 in XL (and if we're sold out or you'd like something custom to your measurements, check out our made-to-order page).
*Please note, these materials were upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, aka a fancy way of saying recycled. This means the fabric can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed (our specialists assess). Dry clean only (some 100% cotton skirts can be washed cold & hung dry)— or try lazy washing: pat odorous spots with vodka/place in the freezer for a day.
