Mini Length Cecilia Skirt in Taffeta -- Custom Made in Your Size and Color Choice
Please note that my current turnaround time on skirts is about 4 weeks from payment/receipt of your order details to shipment. If you need your item shipped sooner, you need to check with me prior to purchasing.
These super fun, frilly little skirts make a wonderful staple garment to help set off an outfit. This style of skirt features a shorter front and longer back and a super full ruffle all around the hemline. The waistband is drawstring and the ruffle is finished with a machine stitched serger rolled hem (I will do my best to match the serger thread color for the rolled hem to the skirt fabric. If you'd prefer a contrasting color, ie. a cherry red skirt with a black rolled hem, please make a note of it for me). It can also be tucked up into a belt or lifted with skirt hikes to create a swag-front look. All seams are serged and professionally finished. All skirts are made from 100% polyester taffeta. They are currently available only in the colors shown. My standard pattern is about 16" at the front center and tapers down to about 27" at the back center, including the 5 1/2" ruffle. If you'd like yours shorter or longer, just ask!
In order to construct your new skirt, I will need to know the following measurements and details:
Waist (the maximum waist I can accommodate in this listing is 50")
Waistband preference (drawstring is default, but I also can use 1" wide non-roll elastic if that is your preference)
Desired Length (if you want me to make yours slightly different from my standard pattern, which is 16" down the front center and 27" down the back, please let me know. If you require more than 2" added to the front and/or 4" added to the back, you need to purchase my regular length Cecilia as a custom instead)
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 points you'd like the skirt to fall to in front and back. 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.
