One of the determining factors to give up buying clothes for a year came after my daughter and I attended a Sevier Skirts trunk show at a friend’s home. Let me begin by saying the woman who started this company is brilliant…
Several years ago, one of my best friends suggested she and I start a skirt company. Her ideas were general and I couldn’t envision how to develop a successful skirt business so we moved on. Then I attended a Sevier Skirt Party in August.
Sevier Skirts offer customers the choice of three styles of skirts; pencil, a-line and swing, along with hundreds of fabric samples so that customers design their own skirts which are delivered in two weeks. The first person I saw when I walked in the door was an attractive woman wearing a pencil skirt made out of the window treatment fabric in my den.
She was the sales rep.
Women were swarming around the fabric racks stocked with a mix of familiar clothing and upholstery fabrics. The average price for a skirt was $170.00, and even though I sew, I bought three skirts – two for my daughter and one for me. I can’t really explain why. I knew I could make these skirts. I knew they were overpriced, but the intrigue of it all overpowered my self-control and I spent $561.00. My daughter loves her skirts and I just hope I wear mine.
It’s very pretty but I wonder if I bought it just to see how this fabric would make up in a skirt.
