If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the debut of my amazing new custom made skirt from BooBoo Kitty Couture on the weekend. I absolutely LOVE the fabric of this skirt and it fits like a glove! I had seen this fabric used to make a dress and knew right away as soon as I saw it that I HAD to have it, in a pencil skirt. I emailed Aislinn, the amazing woman behind this label, with all my measurements and she got right onto it. Unfortunately due to Australia Post being total pains in the butts, the first skirt Aislinn sent me got lost in the mail. She was an absolute treasure and made me another one and got it to me in time for my US trip.
BooBoo Kitty Couture is a UK handmade bespoke clothing line offering made to measure skirts, dresses and accessories inspired by true vintage. Vintage and couture sewing techniques are used for every garment, ensuring the highest quality of workmanship and fabrics are sourced from all over the world to create unique and one of a kind garments. Aislinn is the lovely lady behind this label and she lovingly handmakes everything you see on the website and in her etsy store as well as anything else you can dream up and send her. A qualified textile designer, her workmanship is second to none.
This skirt is perfectly tailored to my shape which makes it really flattering yet comfortable to wear. The fabric is a soft but durable cotton and the skirt is fully lined on the inside. Considering the amount of work it takes for one woman to run her business and handmake all of these wonderful creations to such a high standard, I am so impressed with both the quality and price point of the BooBoo Kitty Couture label. I will definitely be a repeat customer, especially after the fantastic service that I received. You can shop the BooBoo Kitty Couture etsy store for items ready to ship right now or contact Aislinn to get your very own made to measure custom piece.
