From fancy to relaxed
The Whitlam Skirt is our answer to the slim fit column skirt but we engineered it for large bodies. It has a very high waist and the silhouette skims the body and gently cups your bottom for a sleek and sophisticated fit without tummy cling!
Fabrics, fabrics, fabrics
Sewn in a cushy knit, it’s also incredibly comfy and is a fabulous option for travelling as it can easily be dressed up or down.
The Whitllam Skirt is designed to be sewn with knit fabrics, with stretch both vertically and horizontally (4-way stretch). We suggest cotton/spandex jersey, bamboo/spandex jersey, merino/spandex jersey, tencel/modal/spandex jersey.
Performance fabrics will work too, but the sizing might need to be altered (they can be more compressive and therefore you may need a larger size).
Styling your Whitlam Skirt
It’s equally at home with combat boots for an edgy punk look as well as heels or flats for an elegant but super comfy outfit for work or going out. Can you tell from our pictures that we think it's perfect with our knit Atrax Top? Email newsletter subscribers have 15% off all our knit patterns during launch week so it's the perfect time to grab the Whitlam and a knit top to sew a matching set!
