Introducing a new design by AC Clothing and Bags: The Kristin Skirt!

Vintage Print Elastic Waist Skirt by Amy Cools

Hello friends of AC,

Here’s my new design, I’m super excited about it!

The Kristin Skirt – AC Clothing and Bags 

This oh so comfy and oh so flattering, playful skirt is created from my collection of fabulous vintage fabrics, cut full with an stripe insert of a contrasting print, with deep full pockets for free and easy wear, topped with a wide matching or contrast color elastic waistband. 

I named this style for my dear friend Kristin, who loves beautiful colors and whimsical prints, is a marvelous sportswoman and dancer, and always dresses in a manner that never skimps on beauty, comfort, and function!

Come one, come all!

Hello friends!

Come down and see me in a couple of weeks, at my first out of studio sales event in a long while…. wait, has it been a few years? Three? How time flies! Anyway, I’m excited to get out there again, going back to university was like stepping into an alternate world for a time.

So come hang out with me and see what I’ve been creating. There’ll be snacks and wine!

At Mercy Vintage on Piedmont Ave, 6 – 9 pm on Thursday, May 16th.

love, Amy

My newest design: the Minnie Tunic Blouse!

The Minnie Tunic Top by AC Clothing and Bags

These tunic blouses, inspired by the free styles of the 1920’s and named for one of my favorite musical artists of all time, Memphis Minnie, feature a sleeveless, softly fitting shaped bodice, a square neckline, a petal-like layered curved hemline which overlaps the front center panel on either side, and vintage and/or contemporary fabrics and embellishments.

It’s available with rolled hems, or bound in a contrasting color, both options shown in the photos; I can create it for you as a pullover, or with a hidden side snap up placket.

These tops are made to order by request; you may choose the fabric from my fabric shopand I will select a suitable trim which suits the fabric for you, or you may choose one from my shop as well.

I have many more lovely trims than I offer for sale in my shop which I reserve only for my own designs.

Please allow 6 – 10 days from the time you order to the time your top is shipped

TO ORDER – Please convo me with:

1) your size request: small, medium,
or large
2) your favorite suitable vintage print fabric
from my fabric shop

NOTES for choosing fabric: must be a woven
(not stretch) fabric and lighter weight, such as shirting or calico

For sizing, please refer to my Size Guide & convo me with any remaining questions
