Showgirl Skirt

$135.00

This adorable yet dramatic above-knee skirt has a lush, swirling drape only three full circles of rich fabric can give.

The showgirl skirt has a surprising amount of material in it – the top tier is an entire circle, and the lower tier has two full circles (it takes a LOT of yardage to make!).  All this results in a decadent feel and a hem that flares theatrically when you spin.

Pair with a lacy camisole or sparkly tank top for a night of dancing, or a colourful top of an afternoon wedding.  Try it with a peasant blouse for a “pirate wench” look, and a fitted short jacket for a creative semiformal outfit.  Makes a fabulous grad dress paired with a corset.

Showgirl skirts have soft elastic waists that won’t bunch or dig in under corsets, a yoke at the hem to minimize bulk, and lace “flutters” for a bit of glitter.

Photos show the skirts with coordinating items like corsets & jackets.

Please choose up to three fabrics for the main skirt body, and two fabrics for the “flutter” panels.  They will be mixed up over the two tiers to Kitty’s best judgment, unless you have a preference in what goes where.  If you have a special request (more variety of colours per skirt, other colours not mentioned below, etc), feel free to ask.

Description

NOTE: The top of the skirt waistline is meant to sit at your true waist (where your body indents the most), NOT at your hip, so the yoke is completely concealed under your top or your corset.

Please remember that the exact selection will change constantly.  The lace pictured probably won’t be precisely the same as the one on your skirt, but they will be made of a more or less similar material and colour.

Also, please note that the lace photos were shot against a dark brown or a white background (whichever provided better contrast) and those background colours do show through.

WARNING: Your monitor may not show colours or textures accurately!  If the exact shade is important to you, you can order a fabric swatch for $5, which will be deducted when you order anything.

Sizing

Measure your hips or your waist, whichever is larger.  The fit is fairly forgiving, as the waistline is elastic (intended to compress nicely under a snugger garment on top, like a corset).
