Due to some drama with Canada Post, it took me a while to get this skirt, but it was worth the wait :) It is just as pictured, the fabric feels high quality and the stitching looks well done. The size was just right for me, I am overall very happy with my purchase.

About

On a tangent

I started sewing almost 10 years ago while I was a Respiratory Therapist. I bought my first sewing machine and started sewing up a storm. After a while, I needed to learn more so I signed-up for classes to learn how to make patterns.

A year later, the opportunity arose to open up a studio with some fellow designers. I took the leap, quit my job and created "tangente" (which is the french spelling of tangent). At the studio, I did a wide range of jobs from alterations to costume design for local films all while trying to make samples for my very first collection.

My first collection was sold in a few stores locally. After a year at the studio, I was offered a desk job with a stable pay check. I jumped at the chance, closed the studio and put designing on the back burner for a while. A few years later, I realized I could never do a desk job for the rest of my life and I started selling on Etsy. At first I sold some supplies and older inventory but after my first sale, I was hooked. I dusted off my old sewing machine and began designing new styles. Now 5 years later, I finally quit my desk job to concentrate on selling on Etsy full-time.

My current collection can now be found in boutiques across Canada. For wholesale inquiries, please contact info [!at] tangenteclothing.com

I also teach sewing classes at Fabrications in Ottawa.

Shipping will be made with Canada Post. I will try to keep shipping as low as possible but unfortunately Canada Post is quite expensive. If shipping ends up being overestimated by $1.50 or more, I will refund you the difference. For international or combined shipping, please convo and I will get a shipping quote for you. Please convo, if you would like your package insured prior to paying and I will send you a revised invoice.

Countries outside Canada may be charged duty + taxes. Please verify with your local post office for the possible fee associated with your purchase. Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
