Custom Skirt-tificates 20% off this weekend at Flirt!

So everyone is running around trying to find that perfect Valentine's Day gift. But ask yourself this: if everyone is running around to the same places this weekend don't you think everyone is picking up the same "special" gift for that special someone? How special is that, really? Well we have a solution to that:

Let her design her own Valentine's gift!

At Flirt we offer a Skirt-tificate which entitles the bearer to our Custom Skirt service. What comes with this service, you ask? Well let me tell you! After throwing her hands up in frustration for the 100th time yelling, "why doesn't anyone make anything that fits?" she can march herself over to Flirt in Park Slope, sit down in our comfy chair with a book of fabric swatches on her lap, and leisurely scan her choices. After finding the fabric she loves she can then try on samples of our 7 different skirt styles, pick her size, make any (minor) alterations to the fit (more elaborate changes can be discussed but may incur an additional charge) and, after confirming with one of our lovely salesladies that she is satisfied, 2 weeks later she will have her skirt in hand. Custom made for her, here in our Brooklyn-based Home Ec studio, by hand.

Now, to make it even easier for you to make this decision we are sweetening the deal by offering 20% off this service this weekend only. That means Saturday and Sunday. So don't miss out. And if you can't make it to Flirt just call us at 718-783-0364 or email and we'll hook you up!

Flirt Skirts from McCall's Pattern Company

Last year we were approached by McCall's Pattern Company to create a skirt pattern for their new Generation Next line of patterns. Generation Next is McCall's line of patterns featuring young independent designers and we are so flattered to be included. I mean, McCall's! How awesome is that??

The pattern has finally arrived and we are so excited. Based on our Flirt Aline skirt pattern there are 3 variations so now you can make your own Flirt Skirts at home. And if you don't feel like you are ready to tackle the pattern on your own you can always sign up for our Flirt Skirt class and we'll walk you through it step-by-step. Also be on the lookout this Fall for a brand new jacket pattern by Flirt for McCall's.

New Skirts In This Weekend!!!

We know a lot of you have snap skirts! You wear them all the time. You love them on thin days and not so thin days (that's what is so great about that adjustable waistband!). You love the way you can just throw them on with pretty much anything and step out in style while being as comfortable as possible.

Well we have something NEW for you!!!

Say hello to the newest member of the Flirt Skirt family: The Circle Snap Skirt

This fabric is totally amazing and we don't have a lot of it so "snap it up" while you can. We know you may not think of this pale purple as a cold weather color but we ask you: why does dreary weather mean dreary colors? Pair this baby with some opaque tights and your favorite boots!

Want to get the best bang for your buck? How about the Reversible Circle Snap Skirt? Limited edition (we won't be making many that pull double duty like this!)

One side gorgeous silk cabbage flowers. The other a luxurious gold poly satin. Not just adjustable as all our snap skirts are but also two skirts in one! In this day and age what more could you ask for?!?

Also new this week: our mini snap skirt in plaid and faux fur! These are amazing and soooo easy. Love to wear leggings but not really into showing too much tush? Throw one of these over leggings with a simple tee, cardigan, and a great cluster necklace and you got yourself a great look!

Stop by either Flirt in Brooklyn or Apt. 141 in Manhattan to check out these new designs. Call 718-783-0364 for details!

Fall Snap Skirts!

After a brief hiatus from clothing production (baby-having, book writing, etc) Flirt's clothing line is BACK in full force! Keep your eyes peeled for regularly appearing new designs. Our first offering? A variety of snap skirts perfect for throwing over leggings and tights in the (finally) cool weather!!

For those of you that may be unfamiliar our Snap Skirts are our most popular skirt style! Adjustable at the waist using a set of snaps these skirts are fantastic for everyone. Once you get your hands on one you realize you wish all your skirts had an adjustable waistband. And because they adjust from size 2 to 10 they are great for that unavoidable winter weight, large holiday meals, and pregnant tummies!

Pictured above: Aline snap skirt in army green denim, Box Pleat snap skirt in black metallic denim, Box Pleat snap skirt in chocolate metallic.

Available at both our Brooklyn and Manhattan locations. Call for details: 718-783-0364 or to buy online click here!
