Estelle Skirt in Taffeta -- Custom Made in Your Size and Color Choice
Please note that my current turnaround time on skirts is about 4-6 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.
This skirt style is a personal favorite! It features a shorter swagged front and longer three tier back, all edged in frilly ruffles around the hemlines. The waistband is drawstring, which is firmly tacked down across the front so that it only gathers across the back, allowing the front to lay flat across the waist and the back to gather up and drape beautifully. The ruffle is finished with a machine stitched narrow rolled hem. All interior seams are serged and professionally finished. All skirts are made from 100% polyester taffeta with ruffles in crinkled taffeta. If the color you need is not shown, please convo me! I have dozens of colors available that are not yet in my color chart.
My standard pattern is about 18", including the ruffle, at the front center (this may vary by about 1" as the front swags). The sides measure about 12 1/2" long, ruffle included. The center back measures about 34". If you'd like yours shorter or longer, tweaks to length can be made in 2" increments up to 4" total length. Just ask!
In order to construct your new skirt, I will need to know the following measurements and details:
Waist, or Upper Hip if you wear yours slightly lower (the maximum waist I can accommodate in this listing is 50")
Full Hip Measurement
Color Choice (you can choose a solid color or a different color for the skirt and the ruffle, just keep in mind that dye lots can vary between solid taffeta and crinkled taffeta, so if, for example, you request copper with a copper ruffle, you may end up with two different shades of copper).
Waist: Measure this around your waist at its thinnest point. If you'll be wearing it on your upper hips, measure there instead.
Full Hip: Measure around your hips at their fullest point.
Unless we have discussed a different shipment date, expect an email with your shipment confirmation within about 4-6 weeks of purchase. I ship via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance, which typically takes 2-3 days to arrive. If you're in a hurry, please contact me with your zip code to find out shipping costs (postal Express Mail is about $27 on this item, and Express is usually, but not always, overnight). 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!
