The rib skirt is a staple and is made to fit all bodies beautifully, because all bodies are beautiful.
The waist has a 5cm elastic that sits firmly on your true waist (that's where your belly button is). It should fall below the knee but this will depend on your height. To wear the skirt shorter you can roll the waist down
The cut of the rib is a very straight pencil shape. Elastane makes it very stretchy and comfortable. As this skirt is made of cotton rib you can wear it in summer, or pair it with leggings in winter.
This style sports our Thelma print and is available in sizes 6 to 20.
Designed, screen printed by hand and constructed in our Melbourne studio by a small team of dedicated artisans.
Thelma print in black ink on red cotton rib fabric.
The fabric for this product was sourced sustainably by our team from a batch of rejected fabric made here in Melbourne.
Due to the hand printed nature of the fabric, every garment is unique and placement of the print will differ from the photo and garment to garment.
