About this project
We've reached our first goal! The Errand #17 skirt is going to happen! There are still some left if you'd like to reserve one and help Fresh Apparel expand to a second skirt style!
Fresh Apparel is the new venture of Fresh Modesty to manufacture tried-and-true skirt designs. The aim of this Kickstarter is to launch Fresh Apparel’s first style of denim skirts. In a world of skinny jeans and tight pencil skirts, it is hard to find a fuss-free modest skirt and even more difficult to find one that’s stylish as well. I believe I have hit on a design that is fantastic for women all across the board and that the Errand #17 skirt will fill a void in wardrobes everywhere.
The Unique Errand #17 Skirt
Denim is one of the sturdiest fabrics in the world and is one of the few that gets better with frequent wear. The plan is to produce the Errand #17 skirt with 8-9 oz USA denim, which is the perfect weight for a durable yet feminine garment. I have worn this skirt to do hundreds of hours of farm chores and it looks even better for the exercise.
The Errand #17 skirt has a unique design, one not available anywhere else. It is designed to sit comfortably between your waist and hips, a very flattering silhouette for all body types. With no gathers, lumpy pockets, excessive buttons, elastic, or yokes, it works well with many styles of shirts and is the essence of simple-to-wear. I didn't leave out the pockets, though! There are two perfect front pockets, sized for a phone, cash, and keys. With a fly detail, the skirt has that distinctive “jeans” look that keeps it casual and interesting.
Warm in winter and cool in summer, every woman needs a long skirt in her wardrobe. I have chosen this length specifically because it is most eye-pleasing. Besides being beautiful, the length makes it effortless to ride an ATV, sit cross-legged on the floor, or wear it with heeled boots to run errands. You’ll be cute and covered no matter the activity.
Dirt-cheap from China is fine, but you know what’s better? Feeling awesome about supporting a passionate small business. Each Fresh Apparel skirt will be the product of incredible businesses working together for you, to get you the best price possible. The manufacturer I am set to begin production with is an amazing 3rd-generation company located in Bristol, TN that you may have heard of—L.C. King Manufacturing. After visiting just twice I feel like I have cheerleaders and friends among the family there. The denim I’ve chosen is also US-grown + woven. Backers will be helping me choose the hue.
This skirt will be just like your favorite pair of jeans; comfortable for everything, well-fitting, and always awesome looking. I have been wearing this style of skirt on my blog, Fresh Modesty, for years now and girls have sent me pictures from around the world of how they style it. It’s the perfect silhouette for the unsure teen looking to express their style, the ain’t-nobody-got-time-for-dat homeschool mom, and the experienced fashionista.
For a pledge of $68 or more, you will receive an Errand #17 skirt of your very own, in your size! The skirt will retail for $65, but by backing this Kickstarter, you will be saving on shipping and get it before it's available for sale! The skirt length will vary a little bit depending on the size. I’ll be asking for backer’s input on the best average length; but to give you an idea, size 6 has a length of 37”.
Now is your chance to reserve Fresh Apparel’s most popular design! There is a limited quantity, so if you’re one of the women who has been waiting for this line to become available, please don’t hesitate to claim your reward! If we reach the “stretch” goal, Fresh Apparel backers will get to choose the next design to go into production and Fresh Apparel will be farther along the way to becoming a provider of fresh+functional clothing.

Risks and challenges
As with any new business endeavor, there are unforeseen obstacles and delays, but I have tried to think through these and allow for them in the timeline. Because the development of the Errand #17 skirt is 95% complete and all that’s left is fabric-buying and production, the risk of hiccups is reduced. Factory, shipping, and website development schedules are the remaining challenges facing Fresh Apparel. Once funded, skirts will take at least 10 weeks for the factory to produce, so patience will also be a challenge. ;)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
