Flip Skirt - 24"


About Exact Color Matches

As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches. Making an exact color match can therefore present challenges at times. Although my two fabric weights may have been dyed at the same time, they will emerge from the dye bath with slightly different shading. Often these differences are very subtle and though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they will still look great together.

When ordering items you plan to wear together, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. Often I can match garments using extra yardage I include in each dye lot. If fabric is available, I can cut and sew a matching item to complete your outfit. Of course that takes extra time. I will let you know if making your matched set will take extra time and when to expect delivery if part of it must be specially cut and sewn.

If you are comfortable with garment colors that have similar shades but differing values, please be sure to check the "No Thanks" box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

About shade matching

Flared at the hemline, the lower asymmetrical panel is fun and flouncy. A pair of generous inset side pockets and an easy fitting elastic waist offer convenience and a comfy, trim fit. Two lengths. This 24" waist-to-hem skirt lands just below the knee on an average height.

Easy, Eco-Friendly Care

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

  1. A Classic Skirt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017

    I bought my first 24" flip skirt at an arts and crafts fair, not knowing how much I would love it. I discovered that I could wear it for business meetings or more casual events by choosing different accessories. Since I live in California, I can wear it all year long. It packs well and washes easily. Next time I saw Rose at a crafts fair, I got three more skirts. I should have gotten more!

  2. Good & Not Good 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2017

    I looked at this skirt and the other products offered here for a long time before finally ordering. I love to support local cottage industries, love the philosophy of the company, love the personal involvement f the founder, and her approach. I was never confident about the sizing and believe I ordered the best size (small). I like the length, style, fabric, waist, and hip fit, but I had to take in the bunchiness of fabric between the waist and hip about an inch in the front and 3/4 inch in the back to allow a normal t-shirt to lie smoothly over it. This is the same issue I had read about in another review before I ordered.

  3. Not soft like tencel 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2016

    I expected this is to be light and flippy (like the title), but it is fairly stiff. Also, it is quite fitted in the hips and the elastic waist bunches. I would not recommend wearing this with a fitted top.


Matching lightweight tops with midweight pants or skirts

Midweight and lightweight fabrics vary subtly in how they take dye. Even though your outfit may be from the same dye bath, one piece may be darker than the other.

If you prefer an exact match with no variations in color values, order the midweight for both garments.
