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.

The skirt arrived today, I’ve got it on. I love it…You make a great skirt.
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.
Lovely skirt, thank you. Have worn it lots… the Pohutakawa one is very special and gets lots of admirers.
I love the skirt, thank you for making the longer length for me. I have always admired your skirts but thought they weren’t for me because of the length, I do not like to show too much of my legs.
I have three of your skirts and love them.
Thank you, yes I think the width is perfect esp as the skirt is shortened… learning what I can wear being in a wheelchair has and is definitely an interesting journey…Loving my skirt and wear it as much as I can.
Skirt arrived today, very happy thank you!
