Bonnie has been a long standing made590 favourite and we decided since she is the perfect winter skirt we needed her in our Every Body range this season. Bonnie is knee length, pleated to perfection with a wider waist band and Belt loops. There is nothing we don't love about this one! She's sassy but classic and we are sure she is going to be a firm favourite in your wardrobe.
FEATURES: Bonnie is the an amazing cut on all silhouettes, with a perfect length going into winter so you can wear her with tights and boots and have just the right amount of leg showing! It’s also an ideal length for most shapes as she is at the knee on most but makes a lovely, structured shorter cut which isn't TOO short. We love the way the hemline kicks out slightly where the lovely reinforced band sits around the bottom, creating a structured but fun cut which will be versatile with a lot of our tops and basics. This cut is also great stockings as the structure means it doesn't stick to your stockings either. The length (similar to a Patsy) will be a great length for summer, but perfect in winter if you want to wear knee high boots. The same cute pocket placket detail will break up busy patterns, and the flattering pleats will give you an ideal a-line silhouette back and front. Belt loops complete this skirt giving you the option of tucking in your favourite top and belting to dress it up if you wish.
HOW TO WEAR: Wear this little lady with fitted tops (such as our Bree tee, Sybil or Rizzo tee) tucked into the waistband and your favourite belt to finish, or with a blousy top such as the Ginny, Felicity or three leaf for a more relaxed look. You could wear bare legs or ankle boots, metallic sneakers with patterned socks or throw on some sandals for an easy look at summer long. Remember the Baby Bonnie is a perfect knee length, so will be really versatile with many shoe combos and layers too. We are looking forward to wearing ours under warm coats, with chunky scarves and one of our famous locally knitted cardigans this winter.
FABRIC: Heavy weight cotton stretch drill. The same stretch drill as our Sunset skirts, Petra pinafores and our Piper pinafore that are digitally printed.
PRINT: Possum Magic by Andrea Smith.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Andrea Smith is a Sydney based illustrator who specialises in paper cut artworks which she creates from paper she has painted with watercolour paints. This creates tones and textures that give the finished animals depth and colourful undertones. These Possums were created first in sketch form and then by free hand cutting around the shapes to layer and create the possums in full. We love Andreas process and love working with these amazing paper cuts to then create the fabric repeat.
