Uterus Skirt (in magenta)

By far, the most popular skirt I make, and the one that started HissyFit as a business, over 9 years ago.


I love making skirts that are easy-care, figure-flattering, and just fun to wear. A-line shaped & hemmed to just-above-the-knee, this skirt is simple but really looks great on lots of body types (curvy, lean, petite, tall). The slip-on, elastic waist style gives room to breathe, move, and groove.


Oh, and then there's the POCKET: an important feature that's often left off of women's clothes (like we all want to carry purses or bags all of the time, really?) Unlike the flimsy side pockets on most women's clothes, the uterus pocket on this skirt is just the right size (7.5" by 4.5") to hold your most important stuff (phone, small wallet, etc.), and the durable (satin stitch) applique is made to hold up, even with lots of wear & washing. Pocket placement makes it perfect for active-wear (biking, rocking out, etc.) without risking losing your stuff (from either gravity or pick-pockets).


Plus, it's just cool & fun to wear.


This one's made out of vintage 1970s knit poly (my preferred fabric choice for this skirt style, since it holds the a-line shape well and is easy-care, hard-to-stain, and lasts and lasts and lasts). Uterus pocket is a from a scrap of 1970's nylon knit with a dot print. Navy rick rack trim (also vintage) completes the look.
