Basic Taffeta Skirt -- Custom Made in Your Size and Color Choice
This listing is for the skirt only. Other items may be available separately in my shop. =)

***It is shown tucked up into its own waistband in some of the photos. No items for assistance in tucking it up are included.***

Please note that my current turnaround time on taffeta skirts is about 4 weeks. If you need your item shipped sooner, you need to check with me first.

My Basic Skirt makes a lovely foundation piece for any Ren Faire, Victorian, or Steampunk outfit. It is cut in a basic 3 gore style for less bulk at the waistline beneath your bodice or corset and a generous enough hemline to provide a nice swish when you walk. It can also be tucked up into a belt or lifted with skirt hikes. It features a drawstring waistband for adjustability (elastic waistbands are available on request). All seams are serged and professionally finished. All skirts are made from 100% polyester taffeta.

In order to construct your new skirt, I will need to know the following measurements and details:

Desired Length (Note that I can only make these a MAXIMUM of 42")
Color Choice
***These skirts usually end up with a bottom hemline circumference of approximately 130", so if you're wanting to wear a hoopskirt, you need to measure around the bottom of that first and compare to be sure this will go over it. It may be possible to make the hemline of your skirt a little fuller, but please ask me prior to purchase to be sure.***

Measurement instructions:

Waist: Measure this around your waist at its thinnest point. If you'll be wearing it on your upper hips, measure there instead.

Skirt Length: Measure from your waist down to the point you'd like the skirt to fall to. It helps if you get assistance with this measurement since bending even slightly to read a measuring tape can change this measurement significantly. If you intend to wear any kind of petticoat and/or tall heels with your skirt, be sure to take that into account when you measure as well.

Unless we have discussed a different shipment date, expect an email with your shipment confirmation within about 4 weeks of purchase. I ship via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance, which typically takes 2-3 days to arrive. International orders ship via 1st Class Mail International.

Should you wish to make an exchange, you will be responsible both for return shipping and shipping on any exchange item. Items must be returned in new, unworn condition within 3 business days of confirmed delivery confirmation receipt of the package. I'll then issue you the purchase amount, minus shipping costs, towards another purchase with me. I don't issue refunds, but I do want happy customers, so please send me a message with any questions/concerns that you may have. You'll get a quick reply, and I promise I'll work really hard to be sure you're absolutely in love with your clothing!
