My 16-year-old niece is in her first year of college and attends a dance school in London. Since becoming a teenager, she has had quite the eye for fashion. She owns some absolutely beautiful outfits. When my mum told her that we had been offered a tutu skirt to review, she fell in love with the grey midi tulle skirt. She loves the fact that it lies below the knee. She then was so excited waiting in anticipation of the skirt arriving and thankfully due to the company’s prompt delivery service she did not have to wait long. The skirt was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition.
You wouldn’t necessarily realise this looking at the skirt, but the waistband is an elastic one. It is also adjustable. The skirt’s belt finishes it off perfectly. I love the fact that it can be tied in various different ways.
The skirt itself is made from 3 layers of certified Italian tulle. The lining is made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate, a thermoplastic polymer). The elastic waistband is made from a combination of PET and elastodien. What I like most about this skirt is the fact that it is handmade and that so much work and care has clearly gone into it. The skirt is made in the EU from EU certified fabrics. My niece can be sensitive to certain things, so another huge plus was the fact that the skirt is made from fabric and accessories which are safe for a baby’s skin. I also like the fact that environmentally friendly technology is used to dye the fabric used in the skirt. I know of so many people who cut labels out of garments. I love the fact that the company have even thought of placing the product’s label/tag in a place which does not cause skin irritation.
The skirt can only be hand washed in cold water. It can be ironed at low temperatures, however, the company’s website states that best results are achieved by using a clothes steamer. The skirt is produced in-house, this helps them ensure that their products are of a high standard. The company even gives 10% of their profits to charity. See their about us page for more info here.
My niece is planning to wear this skirt out and about over the festive period. It is simply stunning and would look amazing with a simple black top or even a leotard. The skirt is available in size small (waist 29.5-32.7 inches), medium (30.7-33.8 inches), large (32.7-35.4 inches) and XL (33.8-37.4 inches). The skirt is so comfortable to wear and provides the perfect balance of looking amazing but being practical. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for someone special in your life or a lovely festive treat for yourself.
A beautiful item that made my nieces day from a wonderful company.
A well-deserved 5 stars.
