Par Avion: artifacted linen skirt with protrusion

Regular price $ 98.00 Sale

Par Avion. Okay stop now — before we start. "The Brown Lady" as she's known in the studio, is tiny. I don't name dress forms or mannequins because that's super creepy, though we do go as far as calling her "she" plus she's brown — therefore Brown Lady. My point is: she is tiny. This skirt, not so much. This skirt is in the 2X to 3X range, so please don't just run away now without a closer look.
It's a fine mix of avant garde balanced with navy blue. It's full, asymmetric, has frayed hems and frayed panels, plus a giant protusion of a flap on one hip. 

Artifacted? Is that a verb? I'm saying it is. Here's what it means to me.
About this color: I have dyed this garment to a deep saturated shade of navy blue.
particulars:
• rough size: 2X to 3X
• actual measurements: elastic waist fits 43 to 47 inches, hips are over 70, length 32

enjoy! — helen
