Mary Stopes Skirt Sapphire Stripes with Icecap Hand Smocking


The Marie Stopes Skirt for Women in Control. Named after the founder of the first birth control clinic for women comes this hand smocked blue striped beauty. Made from a striking sapphire stripe cotton, the skirt features a deep hand smocked waistband emblazoned with our oversize zig zag smocking design in crisp white "ice cap" threads. Gently elasticated on the inside, the high waist gently hugs the hips for a super flattering smooth fit, framing the tiered skirt full of swish complete with pockets. An endlessly versatile style, pair with our matching Cleopatra blouse for a statement co-ord look, pull up and wear bandeau style as a dress or combine with a cropped T for a super easy statement summer silhouette.
