Wedgewood Maxi Skirt

Worn only twice, this exclusive model skirt is 100% rayon jacquard with a delicate fern leaf design. The fabric drapes gracefully and feels fabulous to wear. The 7-panel fitted-waist style features a waistband with back zip and hook and eye fasteners.

Unique for such a classy skirt is that it has TWO POCKETS inserted in the side seams. Practical as well as gorgeous!

There are hanging loops so that once you’ve pressed the skirt, it won’t get creased again. Hanging loops are terrific if you’re dressing at a venue that doesn’t have clean chairs or coat hangers available.

For a funky look, I modelled the skirt crumpled, straight out of the box it’s been stored in, then I steamed it for a more elegant look (see pictures with Periwinkle Angora Jersey).

BONUS: There are 2.84meters (1390mm wide) of uncut fabric available to purchase separately. You could make or commission a custom-designed top to put your own stamp on the outfit, or turn it into a dress. Or, if you love the look but not the size, use the extra fabric to reset the waistband/yoke to accommodate your waist/hips.

Periwinkle Angora Jersey

This very feminine expression of a jersey is Narelle’s all-time favourite pullover. Dainty and cosy all at once, you can wear it for a semi-formal occasion or wear it every day, and on both occasions feel as good as you look.

In women’s fashion I see two undesirable situations which this jersey can solve. I see women at formal events such as outdoor weddings, in less than balmy weather, chilled, shivering, wishing for an overcoat that matched their elegant outfit or longing for the event to be over so they can change into something warmer. I also see women who spend much of their time at home, in hardworking situations where dainty fabrics and dangling accessories just aren’t practical, longing for an occasion to wear something more feminine and pretty. If either of those sounds like you, then this outstanding wool/angora jersey could be what you need.

Extra Tips:
Avoid wearing pale angora fibres on top of dark colours, unless you enjoy the I-love-cats look. Best advice for this jersey: wear with light colours.
After laundering an angora garment, place in a plastic bag and stow in the freezer for a period. It will help prevent the fibres from shedding as much.



Periwinkle Angora Jersey details:
