Both flattering and comfortable, the Emily Skirt is a staple Metta Melbourne style that we love to recreate in new dreamy hues, patterns, and prints. The Emily Skirt features soft gathering along its elasticated waistband, allowing it to sit flat on the waist yet provide a fluid drape. Of course, the Emily features side pockets for practicality and a drawstring waist, allowing it to be worn on the waist or hip.
Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and made from thickly woven cotton or linen, and in this case a lovely lightweight woven Lithuanian linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric has been traditionally used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers securely in. We fell in love with this timeless stripe many years ago, and love to incorporate it into our collections.

Side Seam Length
All measurements are taken in cm on a flat garment (please double for circumference). All garments are made by hand and may vary slightly.
We recommend looking at the garment’s measurements not only in relation to your body but also in comparison to a similar style of clothing you own. This is a great way of understanding the shape and size of a style.
Our linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some of our linen garments are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning un-ironed look that we have all come to love. If you would like to speed up this process, we recommend popping it in the washing machine and following the care label washing instructions.
