Pristine, but flirty innocence that can turn heads.  Green apple accents tease the hem and perk-up the hip’s side-button closing.  This knee-length, half-circle skirt has Japanese cotton mottled green tape along its hand-stitched narrow hem.  The side placket and waistband show-off the delicate hemstitched border of the original tablecloth.

The Flirt Skirt is made from a gorgeous and unusual vintage tablecloth with Granité weave in heavy, bright white, linen.  The densely embellished embroidery with raised cherry blossoms and elaborate floral bouquets with a bound-weave field, invites the lucky wearer (and others?) to “read” with her hands the elegant texture of this otherwise innocent skirt.  Source: Buenos Aires.
