New Dawn Skirt - Rose Ikat

Sale price Price $109.00 Regular price $139.00

 Fun, frilly and high waisted - this really is a dream skirt.

Made using Carlie's signature handwoven fabric, the rose ikat yarn is dyed using azo free dyes and then handwoven in the village of Telangana, India. Colour variations and weaving variations are characteristic of the handmade nature of handloom and are part of the narrative of this garment, and are not a fault.

Zip closure, fitted on the waisted and across the hips and tush. She's flattering and fabulous.
