The Ivy Skirt was, miraculously, the one and only piece in the collection whose design came to me instantly and that needed no fit adjustments after the first prototype. Something about fall always screams "miniskirt!" to me, and once I had the idea of an A-line wrap skirt with a button waistline closure and no zipper, everything fell in place immediately.
The Ivy truly is a wear-with-anything kind of skirt. The vintage buttons and slash pockets add some visual interest, but not too much to take away from a statement top. The Ivy looks great with basically any kind of top or sweater tucked in or left out, and like any good mini should, it pairs incredibly with tights. Out of everything in the collection, I think this is going to be the thing I wear the most.

This dress is made of a a 35mm silk noil fabric from China, hand-dyed in our studio with acid dyes to be a bright scarlet red. Made from the fibers left over after spinning silk, silk noil (also known as raw silk) is unlike any other kind of silk: nubby, dense, and matte, but with a drape so luxurious you know it just has to be silk.
In addition to the fabric, this skirt uses cotton thread, two vintage plastic buttons, organic cotton labels, organic cotton interfacing, and cotton/silk bias tape/pocket lining.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Ivy is fitted in almost entirely in the waist, so use that measurement to determine your size. If your waist measurement is in between sizes, I recommend sizing up if you want the skirt to hit lower on your hips and sizing down if you'd like it to hit higher up on your waist.
