SOLD OUT — We sold through our original run of Buttercup Gauze fabric only to find that our
supplier is completely out of stock as well! If this news bums you out as much as it does us,
you'll be happy to know that we plan on adding a lot more double gauze (perhaps even in a similar
sunny yellow color) to the site this summer. Sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom of the
page to be the first to know about it!
I don't think I am capable of releasing a collection without a twirly skirt, so I designed the Clover Skirt. It's a full circle skirt (i.e., if you spread it out on the floor, the hem would create a full concentric circle around the waistband) with slash pockets on the front and a button tab closure on the side. It's perfect dressed up with something like the Louise Top and heels, or dressed down with a T-shirt and booties. However you style it, promise me you'll give it a twirl, OK?
- Main fabric: 90% khadi cotton / 10% tussar silk

This skirt is made of handloom fabric woven by hand in India. Handloom was the way basically all fabric was made from the dawn of time until the invention of electricity and modern milling techniques; it requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship, using the same techniques that were used centuries ago. The handloom process uses zero electricity, and the industry employs many skilled workers in rural areas of India where other jobs are scarce, making handloom super sustainable in addition to being breathtakingly beautiful. (Read more about handloom on our blog here.)
This particular fabric is a blend of khadi (i.e., hand-spun) cotton and just a little bit of tussar (i.e., wild) silk. It's soft and gauzy, warm and breathable, rustic and refined, all at the same time. The fabric is ivory-colored and has stripes of black, blue, grey, green, and tan; it pairs well with black, light and dark denims, and our Mulberry Twill fabric.
The skirt is lined with 100% organic cotton double gauze, produced in India, in its natural undyed shade of ivory. It is unbelievably soft and breathable.
In addition to the fabric, this style uses 100% organic cotton thread, one vintage plastic button, a YKK invisible zipper, and organic cotton labels.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Clover is fitted in the waist and nowhere else, so use only your waist measurement when determining your size. If your waist measurement falls in between sizes, size down if you want the skirt to fit higher up on your waist, and size up if you'd rather it hit closer to your hips.
Alyssa is wearing a size Small and is 5'8" with a 35" bust, 26" waist, and 37" hip.
