I priced this the same as my cotton skirts because though the fabric cost me more, the outcome was not as drapey as the heavier linen and I wanted to compensate for that look. This linen is light and breezy. Ready for a summer day, or over tights in the winter!
A comfortable, super flattering, wrap around skirt made with a linen-rayon blend. This style has a flat front design and fits so nicely because of the a-line silhouette. I block printed a stylized rattlesnake design all along the hem, and ended with a warning of "BEWARE- CUIDADO". The lettering can be hidden under the folds of the skirt simply by wrapping it the other direction. The inks used for the printing are made for fabrics and heat set to withstand washing. The fabric was pre-washed to give it extra softness and to assure that it will not shrink with future washings. *care instructions below
Block printing is done by hand and each printing is unique. Block printing is a method where I carve a soft rubber in relief- meaning, the design is made so that the ink adheres only to the parts I leave, the rest is carved away. I purposely leave some of the markings around the design so that the ink picks them up and gives the image more visual interest.
I chose to make wrap skirts because they're flattering and easy to keep in your closet through some minor size changes! The waist will grow or shrink with you- just tie it to fit and you're good to go.
Care for this skirt is fairly easy. Best case scenario, you hand wash it and hang to dry, ironing with a cotton setting using a press cloth or ironing from the back. This will extend the life of the garment just as any hand washed clothing will last longer.
However, it is possible to machine wash, separate, cold, mild detergent, tumble dry low, iron as above! Life should be easy when you can make it, do what helps you achieve that!
