“In 11 sizes & 2 lengths.”

Elegant and easy care, our knitted linen skirt comes out softer --- and swingier --- every time you toss it in the washer and dryer. We’ve adapted our original ‘Flouncy Linen Skirt’ to two silhouettes: A fluid mid-calf length with a longer flounce, and a breezy knee length with a flippier flounce. Why not one of each?!

Use your hip measurement to choose size; this skirt is designed to skim your hips with little or no ease. If your actual hip measurement is between sizes, go down a size - the fluidity of the linen fabric will accommodate the difference.
