The hammered silk skirt was made using a placket behind the measured ruching. Inspired by the trendy cord ruching that I am seeing everywhere but wanting something a little different and more refined, I came up with a new technique that looks especially incredible rendered in hammered silk. The silk is tacked onto a placket at measured intervals, leaving a precisely measured amount of ease between each attachment that causes the fabric to evenly drape. The skirt has the measured ruching along the right side of the skirt, lifting the ankle length skirt asymmetrically to show the leg while adding volume and dimension to the skirt.
The metallic pencil skirt
is made of metallic blush and black jacquard. Fully lined with black 100% silk, and hand finished at the hem, the skirt closes in the back with an invisible zipper, and a hook and eye at the waist belt.
Available in sizes 0 to 24, the metallic pencil skirt
is custom made to each client's measurements if they are entered at the time of purchase.
Photographed in Central Park, Manhattan New York in the Spring.
Central Park is very green in May, creating picturesque reflections in the ponds and streams. The naturally highly saturated green foliage is a welcome sight after months of dreary skies and brown trees. A run in the park is one of my favorite things to do on the weekend, so I decided to take my work there. The image below is only one of the many beautiful spots- you really have to go out and experience it first hand to fully appreciate it...
I'm always aware of my visual surroundings, sometimes to the point of neglecting other important details (like cars and other pedestrians). This cotton candy #colorsoftheyear street art on 10th Avenue and 50th Street in Manhattan caught my eye. The massive art stood out from the grey and brown sidewalks, sky and moods of the people around me. What a cheerful and artsy but unexpected encounter in the midst of Hells Kitchen in New York City! :)

The pencil skirt is a one of a kind piece that I (Kate Stoltz) designed.. If you really like the skirt but are a different size or want a different fabric, I make skirts upon special request. You'll need your waist, hip and preferred length measurements. The skirt is your oyster when you order a custom piece :) XO -Kate Stoltz
