Edit 58 x Smock London Elsie Lampshade Skirt White Grid with Blue Bows Hand Smocking
Introducing a very special collaboration with the Queen of handcrafted homewares, edit58. Born from a mutual love of hand crafted embroidery, our collaboration expertly marries fashion and interiors with a new collection of hand-smocked, ‘ready to wear’ lampshade skirts.
When we sat down to brainstorm together, just knew that hand smocking would translate wonderfully into the world of interiors. Don’t our lights deserve to be as well dressed as we are? Shouldn’t every lightbulb have its modesty covered by a pretty hand smocked skirt? We thought so, and thus set about designing a lampshade range that would elevate the humble fabric lampshade; with smocking being a design detail that enhances their appearance both when lit, and when not.
Named after Elsie de Wolfe, a woman who was aptly an icon of both sartorial and interior style in the 1930s, the Elsie Collection of skirt shades uses our signature hand smocking to create “waistbands” designed to hold the simple relaxed cotton shades in place. Hand pleated and sewn by expert artisans in Vietnam the shades feature an exclusively developed, charming repeat bow pattern composed of latticed trellis stitches interspersed with bullion knots in a beautiful soft blue thread on a canvas of exquisitely pleated textured off white cotton. They are available in two sizes: Mini Skirts and Maxi Skirts.
Each fabric lampshade skirt is sold with an optional plain bespoke Munro & Kerr card base shade: think of it as the petticoat to your skirt over which the lampshade skirt sits and the waistband grips onto. The base shade comes with an interchangeable fitting so that the shade can be used as a table lamp or a pendant shade - simply flip the fitting between the two settings – so they are ‘ready to wear’ straightaway.

Our edit58 x Smock London skirts are pictured on a range of lamp bases – all kindly provided by Alfred Newall. You can shop the Alfred Newall lampbase collection here. Mini Skirts Lampshades work well on Alfred Newall’s ‘Baby’ Bases. Our Maxi Skirt Lampshades work well on both Alfred’s ‘Bedside’ and ‘Grand’ bases.
Due the way our hand smocked pieces are pleated and sewn, our clothes offer a very versatile fit - there is natural stretch in all hand pleated smocks. For this reason we offer fewer, bridge sizes. This means more room for growth and less waste.
Below you will find measurements for our Girls' and Women's Sizes. Please note that as our pieces are made by hand, there will be natural variation between pieces so the measurements below are approximate. If you have any questions, do come and talk to us email@example.com.
All measurements in centimetres.
In general our girl's fit is “Classic British” meaning dresses are designed to hit just below the knee and blouses sit at the lower waist level. At the beginning of the age range dresses will reach to mid calf; at the upper end of the range they will hit above the knee.
Most of our styles will comfortably fit your child beyond the age range specified: elasticated sleeves, tie straps and sashes allow you get as much as possible from each outfit. Better for you and better for the planet.
