I’ve been on a striped skirt kick and while browsing one night, I fell in love with this skirt. The bow sash sold me!  I love that it’s custom, made to order and not an item that is made in massive quantities. The seller is super sweet and the quality is really nice.  I ordered not knowing how well it would turn out.  I was pleasantly surprised at her quality. The stitching was perfect and all the stripes lined up on the bottom and sides.  I love that it’s 100% cotton and a heavier material.  It’s not see through and there is no need to wear a slip if you don’t want to.
The bow sash is attached (in back) so it doesn’t slip up and down and stays in place.  I adore the fullness and a-line cut.  It doesn’t come with pockets but she was kind enough to add them for me.


I love the skinny navy stripes (not black) and can see this as a favorite for a long time to come.  If you are similar in size to me, I asked for a 24″ waist/20″ in total length and it turned out perfectly.  


In case anyone is interested, I saw these adorable white/navy polkadot cotton cropped pants at Ann Taylor Factory.  There were no 00P’s for me to try on so I had to have it shipped to me. It was 50% off and would be so cute for Spring/Summer.  I should be getting mine this week! Hope they fit! Here’s the tag info:

  1. Very cute skirt Annie! I love how full and poofy it is and how it’s custom-made. Thanks for helping me score the Navy&Cream Nordstrom Striped Skirt! I love it to pieces ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The striped skirt is so pretty on you Annie! It’s great that it turned out exactly as the seller described in her listing and she is a sweetheart for adding pockets. I may need to order it from her too. Thanks again for recommending the striped skirt from Nordstrom (of course as I type this I noticed Chritine said the same too ha). I’m looking forward to wearing mine now that the weather is warmer here. Looking forward to seeing those polka dot pants on you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Jess. I was shocked that it was exactly as what was on her Etsy shop. I was nervous to say the least but thrilled at the final product. I love it so much. You are thinking of getting one too? Let me know if you want to take close-ups of any areas on the skirt ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to get my polka dot pants!

      • I blame you for making me covet the skirt because it looks
        so cute on you. I need to drag out my spring clothes from storage before I make
        up my mind but I think the photos you provided here are more than enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. It is such a cute skirt, even more so with the sash! I always prefer supporting smaller businesses. You end up with a unique item that not many people own. Very nice!

  4. I really love your skirt! this is such a pretty outfit

  5. I am so in love with your skirt! The light gray stripes against the white feels so crisp and fresh and I love that it is pretty structured and keeps its shape. Seems like the perfect spring staple piece ๐Ÿ™‚ Overall adorable outfit – I think I’m going to have to look into buying this skirt as well ๐Ÿ™‚
