Silver Birch Stride Skirt
The Silver Birch Stride Skirt has drawn its inspiration from the art couture dress ‘Mycelium‘.
This skirt is classic and minimal in design with adjustable stride via the double ended exposed zip. The zip can be unzipped from the bottom to half-way up depending on the amount of stride needed when walking. The zip also zips halfway down to allow the skirt to be pulled on.
Each skirt uses hand crafted techniques to create a truly unique garment.
The Silver Birch fabric texture has been designed and created by Tarmi in her studio using appliqué and embroidery.
The base fabric is a Slub Silk Dupion. The natural variations that form the texture of the slub fabric compliment the appliqué and embroidery that has been inspired by a silver Silver Birch tree .
Each skirt is fully lined in Silk Habotai. The dye pattern takes inspiration from the mushrooms on Tarmi’s art couture garment ‘Mycelium‘. The lining is hand dyed by Tarmi using the Japanese Shibori technique, Arashi. Also known as pole-wrapping shibori to create a wavy pattern within the colour.
Main – White. Lining – White and Apricot or White and Peach
Exposed zip at front that allows adjustable stride. The zip can be unzipped from the bottom to half-way up depending on the amount of stride needed when walking. The zip also zips halfway down to allow the skirt to be pulled on.

The Silver Birch Stride Skirt has drawn its inspiration from my art couture dress ‘Mycelium‘. As part of the process of designing ‘Mycelium’ I worked on a fabric treatment to represent the bark of a Silver Birch tree. Using upcycled remnants of fabric from the studio and embroidery I came up with the beautiful texture you can now see in this skirt. In the inspiration image I was working from for the bark of the Silver Birch dress, there were dark edges where the bark was splitting and I just loved the contrast of these against the silver white bark. This was represented in ‘Mycelium’ and has now become the inspiration behind the exposed zip. This garment has become part of a ‘Mycelium’ art couture dress inspired collection.
