No, but I have bought from other Etsy sites. What are their sizes like? I like Betabrand products, also US made.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

Looks like some of the skirts are reverse apron wrap skirts think of a Sport Kilt apron reversed (closing on left side) with a Velcro waist closing !
Most of the views are frontal so don't know about any pleats and pleats would just add to the cost and material !
A simple utilitarian design - I like it - I like it !
Looking over the website appears to be a lot of plaids and print designs not much in solids.
Description states that you get two skirts for the price of one - that is done with each skirt being REVERSIBLE - interesting the waist closing ???
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I sent a message to the Etsy store and the lady who replied said that they don't have any solid colors in stock right now She told me to call their Denver store at 720-446-6041 and ask them since they have the newest skirts available there.

I do like the ditsy type of fabric patterns so the skirts by Li'l and Etsy in general appeal to me. I don't have any of these type of skirts but I would certainly rectify that if I come across any affordable examples.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I just got off the phone with Jen, the owner of the company, and ordered a lil skirt!

We texted back and forth and I picked two panels from the photos she sent, one side a red and the other side black with white and they are custom sewing it for me. Im only her 5th custom order to date. it only cost $10 more for a custom skirt.

She is also coming out with a line of wool skirts with plaid patterns that will be cool. She sent me a bunch of photos of those too

She was great to work with! If you are interested, use the email form on their site and she will get back to you asap.

A reversible wrap skirt of that length, with adjustable fastening, has a lot going for it. I even noticed a small pocket in one. Also, unlike 77.5% of my skirts; it is not made in China.

Anthony, in the 'Down Under' may take a liking
to these skirts. A 're-make' of the Mini-Skirt :D

My lil skirt arrived today, its amazing to wear! And is very adjustable by the way it snaps.

I originally couldn't find the pockets, but I finally did!

They are cool, hidden right below the waist band. About the size to hold a iPhone. There are two, one for each side of the skirt.

I will take photos later and post them

Here are the hidden pockets in the skirt. I put a iPhone 6 in there to show the size, the phone is hitting the bottom of the pocket.

I wish they were a little bigger, but at least there is something and you could use both if needed.
