Our petticoat skirt is lightweight and perfect for summer! When the weather turns chilly, it also makes a great layer under dresses & tunics. We love using it for a gorgeous pop of color - and for the extra pockets. A 1 1/2" wide elastic waistband tops off a yoke designed to lay smoothly under tops. The skirt is gathered onto the yoke for swishy fullness at the hem, and it's made from a 55% linen / 45% rayon blend for drape. Cut & sewn in the USA.
The Petticoat Skirt is prewashed, preshrunk and hand dyed in our Hillsborough, NC studio. It will have subtle variations in color that make it a one-of-a-kind garment. It takes up to 10 days from ordering to shipping due to this hand work.

Sizing & Fit Guide
Most of our clothing is generously sized for comfort. We list the height and measurements of our models, along with the finished measurements of our garments. Inches aside, fit is a very personal thing, and we encourage people to pick the size that's comfortable for them. Even if two people have the same body measurements, they may pick different sizes if one person likes a snug fit and the other likes a looser fit.
How to measure your body for the size chart:
All garments made out of woven fabric have added EASE - the room you need to move around. How much ease do you need? Generally, 2 - 3" at the bust and 4" or so at the hip is the minimum — but again you might prefer more or less depending on how you like your clothes to fit. Any garments listed with a waistband are designed with elastic or another way to adjust the fit, we will list the unstretched and stretched measurements. If you fall between sizes, think about if you like a looser or a tighter fit, and take a look at the measurements listed for the garment — you can use a tape measure to approximate what that measurement will feel like on your body.
Here are some keywords we use regarding fit:
- Fitted: 0 - 2" of ease (usually a garment made from a knit fabric for stretch)
- Standard Fit: 2 - 4" of ease
- Loose Fit: 4 - 6" of ease
- Free Fit: more than 6" of ease
We understand that clothing is hard to select without trying it on. While we don't allow returns, we do allow exchanges for size or a different garment. And we are always happy to discuss what styles work best for different body types!
