'Romp' skirt - sweet sweetness

I love browsing Etsy but I can usually abstain from an impulse purchase by sleeping on it. With this, however, I had to have it immediately:


It's for Little Miss P who probably won't fit into it for at least another year, so the purchase was a little rash, but it arrived today and I don't regret a thing. It's from Romp who is Sophie G in Seattle. She makes "one-of-a-kind children's goods out of the most eco-conscious and luxurious materials." This skirt is made from a recycled cotton and cashmere blend sweater, and has a cashmere pocket with felt bird and leaf details.

I was just thinking, isn't it incredible that through Etsy, here in Melbourne, I'm able to buy something handmade in Seattle? How great is that?

This is how it came packaged...


Gorgeous!
