This hand-crushed cross-woven 100% rayon skirt uses fabric with two different colors in the warp and weft. This allows the fabric to reflects light in a fun, artistic way without being too formal for most occasions. The waist band is elastic for a comfortable fit and the hem is finished with a delicate but lively line using a pearl stitch machine so it follows the free-formed crushed edge.
It is comfortable, flexible and adjusts to many body shapes.
The natural breathable fabric is tightly twisted and steamed. Then heated pressure is applied to give the fabric a crushed ‘memory’.
For reshaping: Adjust the size and shape by spraying lightly with a water bottle and then twisting tighter at the waist and pulling out the bottom edge for a wider hemline. Allow to dry.
For traveling: Twist the skirt into a soft tube, and then twist again into a figure of eight curl. It will tuck into a corner of your suitcase. Don’t fold it or the garment will arrive with a fold line across it. Whoops! If that happens, hang it in the shower and allow steam to gently drop the fold line out. Alternatively, pat the fold with a damp cloth and re-twist. Allow to dry.
Sizes: This adaptable skirt comes in a variety of colors, and 8 sizes.
