Hems & Hers - Custom Made Skirts & Dresses

I must tell you about this wonderful person, Caroline, and her blog / shop called Hems & Hers.

I ran across Caroline through another follower(ing) blog a few weeks ago and I contacted her about making some skirts for me.

I told her my ideas for colors and patterns, she emailed me about 30 fabric print choices, I chose two, gave her my
size and then wha-la....two weeks later, these beauties showed up in my mailbox.

She is
VERY competively priced, especially considering they are custom made, from fabrics you are not going to find mass manufactured. They are truly one-of-a-kind. I wore one yesterday and I received so many compliments everywhere I went.

She also makes dresses and other skirt
patterns. I will be ordering her latest fall houndstooth pattern very soon because it is just so adorable! That, and some dresses too.

PS - my skirt, the Belle Skirt - it has pockets! Yes, pockets! In my line of work, pockets are a must so I just love this skirt. Plus it is super comfortable as it was made to fit me per

Please, run over to Caroline's site, Hems & Hers and support her little business. You won't be disappointed!


  1. I recently found her too. Her skirts are so adorable. I would have a closet full if I could. There are ideal for FLA too.

  2. I saw you're a new follower! Thanks so much for reading my blog, or should I say rants and nonsense. ha=)

  3. So cute! That flower fabric is one of my favorite fabrics, I made an apron out of it a few years ago.

  4. Adorable skirts! I love it when you find something new and as you said, not mass produced! Very cute!

    (and yes, pockets are a must for mommies!)

  5. I love knitting...I wish I had more time for it but someday I will get back to it!
    I used to teach knitting for the other town we lived in which was lots of fun!

  6. Thank you, thank you for the sweet post! I'm so glad you're loving your skirts!
