london skirt - monochrome tweed
Our version of a basic. This is a flouncy mini skirt with horizontal seam details. Super high waisted. Cut semicircle-style without side seams so the back is bias cut, slightly fuller, and slightly longer. Back zip closure. Dress up with our nolita top and heels, or throw on with your favourite vintage tee and boots. Matching scrunchie included!
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 silk tweed (circa 1980s) to make 6 skirts! Made in NYC by our legendary seamstress. For a perfect fit, measure the smallest part of your high waist— these skirts run SLIGHTLY LARGER than our chelsea style, and best fit a 24 inch waist in XS, 26 in S, 28 in M, 30.5 in L, and 32.5 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— or lazy washing: pat odorous spots with vodka/place in the freezer for a day.
