Soleil Skirt in Buttercup Gauze

$ 265

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!

Story

The Soleil Skirt is so named for the many things about it that remind me of the sun: the circular waistband, the curved front pockets, the round button cinching the side, the darts radiating from the waist like a sunbeam — and, of course, the sunny disposition of the silhouette. With a subtle A-line shape and a flattering just-below-the-knee length, the Soleil Skirt is the perfect companion for a warm, sunny day.

      Materials

      This skirt is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton double gauze from India. Composed of two layers of gauze that have been tacked together, double gauze is unbelievably soft, breathable, and opaque. It is light and airy and one of those fabrics that, like linen, is wrinkle-prone, but that's part of what makes it so great to those (like me) who love it — even the first time you wear it, double gauze feels soft and rumpled and worn in, like a cozy old blanket, and it only gets softer with repeated wear.

      This particular double gauze is a bit thicker and more tightly woven than the double gauze used as our lining fabric. The color is a sunny yellow-gold that pairs excellently with navy and cream.

      The skirt is lined with undyed GOTS-certified organic cotton double gauze, produced in a Fair Trade certified mill in India. Our lining fabric is unbelievably soft and breathable and makes for a perfect lightweight layer against your skin.

      In addition to the fabric, this skirt uses organic cotton thread, a YKK zipper, one vintage plastic button, organic cotton interfacing, and organic cotton labels.

       

      Fit

      Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.

      The Soleil is most fitted in the waist, so use your waist measurement when determining your size. Although the style runs true to size, there is very little ease in the waistband, so I recommend sizing up if you fall in between sizes.

      Anna is wearing a size 4 and is 5'8" with a 33" bust, 27" waist, and 42" hip.
