We met at the Nelson Art market (a great tip if you are visiting NZ) and loved her market stall with the handmade skirts and vintage prints. Unfortunately the colour and print that I liked the most was sold out but she offered to make me one and ship it to me in Germany. She also had me try different skirts on and then pinned the fabric so she could adapt the skirt to my exact size. When I got back from our vacation my custom made skirt was waiting for me at home. I’m very happy with the fit and the professional finishings and have gotten several compliments wearing it. I definitely recommend Jill and MADCAT. Also if you have time, check out the studio at Founders Heritage Park in Nelson where, if you are lucky, you can get a glimpse of the screen printing and sewing.
The skirt arrived just after 4 this afternoon. Very happy with it, am already wearing it.
Skirt arrived today, very happy thank you!
The skirt you made for me has arrived in the UK safe and sound, and I love it… I wore the first skirt I bought from you, a Fantail one in brown, to the opera last night in Sheffield (UK). I love it – its shape, its colour, the material, and its association with those lovely birds.
I am looking forward to my new skirt, I wear so many of your different coloured skirts and just love them all! It’s understated, elegant and beautiful… I do have many admirers whenever I wear a Madcat skirt.
I bought a gorgeous orange skirt off you a couple of years ago, you cut to my exact measurements etc., my skirt has been thrashed to death, so time for a new one, or two.. would you still have those measurements etc.
My skirt always gets so many cool comments… I so love your fabrics.
Lovely skirt, thank you. Have worn it lots… the Pohutakawa one is very special and gets lots of admirers.
