CRAPPY PHOTO DISCLAIMER: Styling/photos of the Swencil skirts have proven difficult as my dress forms make them look BAD…These skirts look a LOT better on a real human body…they are body conscious but do not fit like the photos make them look…I’ll try to get a sample photo on a live model soon.
This swencil features a color blocked pattern in black and grey and a mix of other colors. Fabric is a medium-weight wool blend. Perfect to add some graphic interest to your wardrobe.
Swencil™ skirts (sweater + pencil) are created in a classic pencil shape from reclaimed/recycled sweaters (cotton, acrylic, wool, and misc. blends) and come with their own matching “cowl”. Talk about easy dressing – throw on your favorite top and you’re out the door looking (and feeling) GREAT! Swencils™ feature fantastic prints, strong graphic elements, and/or unique textures. Definitely a more body-conscious silhouette than the a-line – swencils accommodate a wide-range of sizes (and womens’ fluctuating body shapes) with ease. Snuggly and warm these skirts are fantastic for layering in the coldest weather or on their own when it’s a bit milder. Like all gajettes™ clothing, Each piece is a one-of-a-kind original – just like you. Like all handmade objects swencils™ are happier when handled with care: hand-washed and line-dried – but they can withstand machine washing and drying with ease (‘cept the wool ones – noted on care tag). Each one-of-a-kind skirt is well constructed (all construction seams are serged) and designed to be with you for many years to come.
Although Swencil™ skirts are a more body-conscious silhouette than the a-line – they easily accommodate a wide-range of sizes (and womens’ fluctuating body shapes) – generally smalls will fit sz. 0 – 6. They have a significant amount of stretch in them. Swencils™ are made to worn at mid-high (natural) waist – although smaller sizes can wear lower slung. Please check the measurements below and compare to one of your own skirts that fits well.
ALL measurements are taken UNSTRETCHED – (+ 5-6” for stretch generally)
waist: 25 in.
hips: 33 in. (if worn at natural waist – approx. 9 in. from waistband)
length: 21 in. from waist to hem
