    Great skirt!

    A black pencil skirt has always been a wardrobe must for me, until my body started changing shape on me. I could no longer wear them off the rack and it seemed like my size was changing faster than I could get them tailored. So, I tried to convince myself that my pencil skirt days were over.

    Not so! Thanks to this awesome skirt, my black pencil skirt looks are back. The fit is very forgiving. Plus the fabric is great quality, so not only does it feel great, but it doesn't look like some cheap body con skirt. I wouldn't hesitate to wear it as business attire.

    Anyway, I wore this again yesterday, and it occurred to me that I should come say how great it is.

    Definitely check your measurements against the size chart - I did and it fit perfectly.

    So Comforable

    It's like wearing sweatpants to the office. Other skirts I have worn over the years have pinched at the waist or required constant readjustment. Not this skirt. You can walk, move, and sit comfortably all the while looking professional.

    Fits beautifully.

    I haven't worn it out of the house yet, I'm retired so not going to work. It hasn't been warm enough yet for me to just wear it out & about.

    The length is perfect at 24.5" I ordered a size 8 vs my usual size 6, it fits. I just hope it doesn't stretch out much (should say at all) in the waist.

HOW TO MEASURE

BUST : Take this measurement while wearing a bra, ideally the one you intend to wear most of the time. Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Keep your arms down when recording your full bust measurement.

WAIST : Place the measuring tape at the narrowest part of your torso (your natural waist). Be careful not to squeeze too tight to allow a little give and make the measurement. 

HIPS : With your feet together, place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips. Ensure you'll have enough room to move comfortably and make the measurement. 

INSEAM :

  1. Start with a pair of pants and/or leggings you already have that fit you well and lay them flat on the floor.
  2. Carefully measure the length from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
  3. THIS NUMBER IS YOUR INSEAM. Use this number to help you choose your next pair of great-fitting pants. 
  4. Start shopping by your inseam!

Story of our Héritage designs

We are proud to walk tall with our cousin nations and want to keep sharing our beautiful Indigenous stories with you. 


Prairie Pride Flower

The Red River Métis Nation were often referred to throughout history as the "Flower Beadwork People". Andréanne’s Métis ancestor, Catherine Mulaire, left samples of her embroidery in a style made of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of red and pink. Métis artist, David Albert transformed these tiny sinuous flowers into a bold design symbolizing the new-found pride of the Red River Métis. He has named this design the «Prairie Pride Flower»

Catherine’s Vine

The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ». This style was generally made up of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of reds and pinks. From samples of Catherine’s embroidery, still owned by her family, Andréanne was inspired to create the design she calls Catherine’s Vine.

Spirit of The North

The Aboriginal Plains people used Eagle feathers in ceremonies as a symbol of respect and healing.  In the Indigenous culture, the Eagle is the symbol of Love in the Seven Sacred Teachings.⁠ To the Inuit people, the Polar Bear is regarded as the embodiment of the spirit of the North, an animal that possesses ancient wisdom.⁠ In true Métis fashion, David Albert captured the beauty and essence of both, using the bold Haida style in his design to pay homage to his Indigenous West Coast cousins.⁠

Northern Willow

The Aboriginal people used the bark of the willow to relieve pain and fever. They chewed or boiled a tea from the willow's leaves or inner bark to relieve fever or other minor pain like toothaches, headaches, or arthritis. The willow is often given the nickname "toothache tree".  Modern medicine has discovered that willow bark contains the medicinal extract, salicin, or salicylic acid (salix is Latin for willow). This chemical is the active ingredient in common aspirin. David Albert, a Métis artist, selected this important element of nature to create this design.

La Flèche

The Métis people helped shape the Canada of today, mainly in terms of the expansion of the west. The Métis became the link between the First Nations and their European allies, assisted by their wives who translated the native languages and helped resolve any cultural issues that arose. Métis Artist David Albert created this arrow (Flèche) to pay tribute to the trading activities between the Métis and First Nations people . The Métis were, in fact, astute business people. The flower represents the Métis, also known as the "flower beadwork people," and the arrow represents the First Nations and the connection between them.

Raven of Life

Raven can transform himself into anything. In Native culture, the Raven is the most powerful of mythical creatures. Traditionally, he symbolizes creation, transformation, it gave people fire and water, placed the trees and grass over the land and put the sun and moon in the sky. This design, by Aboriginal Métis artist David Albert, portrays the Raven becoming a branch of life.

Catherine’s Vine embroidery

The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ». This style was generally made up of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of reds and pinks. From samples of Catherine’s embroidery, still owned by her family, Andréanne was inspired to create the design she calls Catherine’s Vine.

The Red River Floral Embroidery

Representing harmony and pride, The Red River Floral was derived from traditional floral beadwork which is distinctively ‘Métis’. The Métis were known as the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. This print was created by David Albert, a Métis artist from Winnipeg who merged European floral designs with The Red River traditional flower (center one) which creates a connection between culture and earth.

Fabric Care

 

To ensure the longest lifespan of your clothing, we recommend the following care instructions for all of our fabric blends:

For long-lasting results:

✔ Wash cold on a delicate cycle (Hot temperatures will cause garments to shrink 3-4%)

✔ Hang or lay flat to dry

✔ If your garment is colour blocked, it’s best to always wash the garment in cold water and immediately hang or lay flat to dry

For printed and embroidered garments:

✔ Turn inside out before washing

✔ Wash cold on a delicate cycle

✔ Lay flat or hang to dry

✔ Enjoy longer-lasting colour and embroidered detail

Bonus Care Tips!

Viscose from Bamboo/organic cotton is as easy to care for as any cotton t-shirt, with one exception: it is heavy when wet. Laying flat to dry when possible will help eliminate stretch, plus help conserve energy by eliminating the dryer!

We recommend washing on the delicate cycle with similar soft garments. (This means avoiding adding soft garments to loads with rough denim, metal, or Velcro.)

We recommend using Tru Earth Laundry Strips when washing your items. It’s laundry detergent that’s gentle on your skin, the environment, and your clothing.
