The Athena in MARIGOLD // Gauze Cotton Skirt // Light, Flowy, Playfully Elegant Skirt // You are a Gift!

$56.00



We love The Athena for her warrior-goddess strength, movement, and sweet femininity. This exquisitly comfortable skirt can be hiked in and made dirty, with a bow to unwrap at the end of the day. She is 100% gauze cotton, highly breathable and floaty in the wind. Strings sewn into the inside all around allow you to tier her up, high, medium, or low. Hike her up with your boots on and run up the hill with your petticoats gathered in the Summer sun. She is here to free your movement and play. We love her luxe bow to communicate abundance and movement ~ because behind a bow is a delight to be discovered.

The Athena is One Size flexible fitting 0-12 US. She is meant to be worn at the natural waist.

Overall Length: 37" inches, can be tiered
Waist: 22-39" inches, flexible
Hip: up to 58" inches

A short cotton slip is sewn inside for modesty.

This is my favorite shop, I love how comfortable it fits


The fabric is so light, the elastic waistband is gentle. My waist is 30" and it fits comfortably. The rust color is just as pictured, a reddish almost-brown.


Overall very happy with it, though it missed the mark in some ways. Bad: One of the belt loops had come off on one end when it arrived, so I had to sew it back into place. I'm a 31" waist, 41" hips. Fit me well, but could be uncomfortable for anyone with larger waist measurements than me, so 'one size fits all' is a little optimistic. I also wish it were longer (I'm 5'7", and it hits right above my ankle). The slip on the inside is the length of a mini skirt, which is a lot shorter than I'd prefer, but the outer layer--while not opaque--is solid enough that I think it will be okay. Would much prefer a slip that hits slightly above the knee though. Good: The color (thistle) is beautiful, and the tie belt is a nice touch. I can dress it up or down, and the length/fabric combo will make it a great skirt for any season.


Beautiful, high quality skirt. Immediately got compliments the first time I wore it. Comfortable, breezy. Very happy with my purchase.
