Chelsea Skirt - Italian Kitchen
The Most Interesting, effortless, upcycled womenswear made of vintage fabric.
Straight out of the 60s. This is a super high-waisted A-line mini skirt. Cut for the most flattering fit with a cinched waist and wide hips. Slightly longer in the back for style and comfort. Back zip closure. Unlined. Wear with a tucked cashmere cardigan and knee boots. Matching scrunchie included!
Our entire boutique line is made using vintage fabric remnants dating 1930-1989, meaning each piece has zero impact on the environment and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this lightweight cotton fabric (circa 1960s) to make 6 skirts! Made in NYC by our traditional seamstress, Cici. BTW these skirts run smaller than our usual sizes, so size up if in between. For a perfect fit, measure the smallest part of your waist— these best fit a 23 inch waist in XS, 25 in S, 27 in M, 29 in L, and 31 in XL (and if we're sold out or you'd like something custom to your measurements, check out our made-to-order page).
*Please note, these materials were upcycled from pre-consumer vintage textiles, aka a fancy way of saying recycled. This means the fabric can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed (our specialists assess). Dry clean only (some 100% cotton skirts can be washed cold & hung dry)— or try lazy washing: pat odorous spots with vodka/place in the freezer for a day.

We know returns are expensive and annoying— so we're doing our best to make it easy for you. If you'd like to make a return, contact us and we'll provide a return label (with tracking). Simply tape it on your original packaging, and scan it in at your local post office. Please note we can't be held responsible for packages we do not receive. Once we receive your package, we'll refund you less return shipping cost ($10 for domestic orders, $15 for international orders). For exchanges, please simply return your unwanted item and re-purchase a different one. If you feel like your order is a special case, contact us and we'll have a chat!
Hopefully two weeks is long enough to decide if you want your stuff. We offer full refunds for up to 14 days (from delivery). Make sure the item is unused, in the same condition that you received it, and in its original packaging (and alongside its free matching scrunchie, if applicable). Once your return is received, give us a day to process and approve your return. Refunds will be automatically applied to your original method of payment within 3-5 business days. If it's taking longer, contact your bank as they may delay refunds before they're officially posted. If you’ve done this and still have not received a refund, contact us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note final sale items are non-returnable.
