Kathleen's handwoven skirts are as versatile as the rest of her signature line. The designs are stylish and showcase her richly colored handwoven fabrics. Skirts can be made to any length, with a back or side zipper, and are without a waistband (unless requested) to allow the garment to sit at the top of the hips for a smooth, clean silhouette. Pair one of Kathleen's skirts with a simple top for a casual look. Add a vest or jacket to the ensemble for a more formal occasion.
These lightly flared skirts (pictured below) are loaded with style, and flavored with a hint of fun. They are lined and have a back zipper. The panels of Kathleen's handwoven fabrics can be smoothly seamed or gently ruffled. Either presentation highlights the artistry of the supple, flowing fabrics, and feels wonderful as the skirt gently brushes your legs when you walk. These skirts look great paired with boots.
SUEDE & LEATHER FRINGE SKIRTS
These straight skirts are accented with hand knotted strips of suede and leather that sway when you walk or dance. The suede and leather strips are worked into Kathleen's handwoven fabrics with the Swedish Rya knot technique. These are time tested knots, similar to what is used in fine Oriental carpets.
These skirts have a tailored appearance, with back and front darts making for a smooth fit. STRAIGHT SKIRTS are fully lined and interfaced. They can be made with an asymmetrical front slit, center back slit, or a center back kick pleat. Pair one of these skirts with a Kathleen Weir-West vest or jacket for a femininely powerful business look.
