Etsy Stylist: Skirting the Issue
Handmade skirts girl everything up By Amber Taylor
The Closet Stuffer's adorable upcycled swing skirts.
Comments () | Published August 30, 2010

For Washington women yearning to find unique pieces on a budget, Etsy.com—which sells handmade and vintage items ranging from T-shirts and hair accessories to bespoke suits and ball gowns—is a great option if you know where to look. Every week, Amber Taylor finds Etsy’s best, whether you’re dressing for an A-list event or brightening up a trusty dress.

Custom-size skirts from Etsy show off curves and clue everyone in to your flirtier side.

Artaffect offers a casual jersey version. $39.

We love Les Enfants Sauvages’s secretary skirt, which combines conservatively tailored wool with a dash of sari silk. $90. 

Moon Circus’s brown wool pencil skirt punches up an old standard with yellow piped seams. $160.

For a bit more flair—and flare—Ramonalisa offers black and tartan skirts with crisp box pleats and contrasting pocket linings. $88.

For those times when you need them (i.e., always), miniskirts by the Closet Stuffer and CAST Couture feature oversize pockets.

The hand-colored buttons marching up MyLolaFashion’s pieces lend a girlish touch. $69.

Sustainable Mama’s circle skirts—we dare you not to twirl like a four-year-old. $70.

Looking for something a little more edgy? The Flora high waist skirt by vanessamoore gives a faux-belt effect withan exposed zipper and rosette detailing. $69.

The Indie Collective’s pleated skirt charms in spite or—or maybe because of—its erratic pattern. $110. 

Tutu Chic’s Chocolate Cream Ganache skirt ($145) brings ballerina grace to any formal occasion.
