'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...
