The very first week on the job, Josie was given the task of designing a National Picnic version of a classic wrap skirt. Instructed to use the lightest weight fabric, because we were headed into heat wave season. Three days in, she completed two samples, longer (here) and shorter (click here). 

That design, with few edits, became this skirt. Youthful Josie isn't nostalgic for aprons, she simply likes the way it can be tied into a decorative bow at her back. She's already worn the sample to its first party and reported loads of compliments. It's ready to be ordered by you.

32" long skirt hits somewhere between mid calf and ankle on average heights. It wraps into a tall A-line (even the smallest size requires 3 yards of fabric to complete), evoking silhouettes popular in the 1970s. The suggestion of apron ties nods to a few other decades. It has a vintage air, but is sewn from fresh, new, lightweight but lasting fabrics. 

The fabric weight is particularly comfortable for the hottest days of summer. Made from  linen/cotton Swiss Dot fabric, it features the same generous waist tie that looks cute tied behind the back, apron style, it is also long enough to be wrapped twice around to tie at the front. High-waisted look—it is designed to tie at your natural waist.

Be aware that on your lower half, swiss dot fabric can show the outline of your legs when back-lit, or hint at the color of your undergarments. The overlap of the skirt front provides a natural self lining in the front. Wear skin-toned undergarments, or a half-slip, to tame show through in the back. The darker color Blue Dot hides naturally hides more than Confetti's lighter color.

Fit:

Choose fit by your waist size, although it's the most adjustable item we make, it does come in a few sizes. The A-line hip area drapes freely.

Designed to fit several sizes with the same skirt, there is some overlap between sizes we call "smaller" and "larger". On the cusp: If you would describe yourself as a "thick-middled" size large, "larger" will overlap more for you. If your shape carries more in the hips, you probably are OK with "smaller".

For "Plus" sizes, please add your waist measurement in the "message" section of your order, your skirt will be made to measure.
