I can't believe I didn't review this sooner, I swear I did but I was checking through things & could not find it.
My youngest (just turned 8) wears skirts and dresses all the time. We used to just stick tight shorts under it, but now we only use the Skirty. This thing is so stinkin' cute and functional!
If you have a daughter, niece, granddaughter you have to buy one of these things. They are just adorable on. Normally you can't see it, but at times when my daughter is really playing, you can see the lace and it looks like a nice addition to the outfit.
The Skirty is made by Rebekah Merkle. She makes an adorable line of girls clothes including dresses, shirts, skirts, accessories and of course the skirty!
Her philosophy ~
Amoretti is a company that has grown as an extension of my life. It began with the clothes I design and sew for my own three lovely daughters. I believe that you shouldn't have to choose between beautiful clothes and practical clothes. That dressing up should be easy. That being a lady isn't old fashioned. And that "ladylike" most emphatically does not mean "fussy." And since Amoretti is so tied to my life, you could sum up the design philosophy as good old, down-home, American... but with just a touch of an English accent.
The Skirty comes in a wide range of sizes from 2 - 12. The way it is made, you should get many years out of it. My daughter has had her for awhile now and I can see her wearing it at least another year maybe two. It is 95% cotton, 5% lycra and best of all, made in the USA!
