Casacade Skirt Prototype

PRICE: $25 (+ the usual taxes etc). 

This was the original prototype I made for our Cascade skirts.  I ended up going with a different construction method, so this one is now an orphan.

It’s made from decent-quality dark brown wool-blend crepe suiting.  The construction isn’t stellar, at least by my personal standards, but it’s probably better-made than most ready-to-wear.  I only have the one. 

The waistband stretches between 28 inches and 40 inches — it *can* go a bit bigger for the purpose of slipping it over the hips or overhead (but I don’t think it should be worn on a 41-inch waist, for instance).  I’m 36 inches at the waist, and I find it pretty comfortable. 

Cascade Skirts (Even More Discounted)

PRICE: $35 (+ tax and shipping; regular price $135-145). 

For one week only, Cascade skirts have been even more drastically reduced in price! 

The Cascade skirt has a theatrical high-low hemline (perfect for showing off gorgeous boots), comfortable stretch waistbands, and wide hem ruffles. 

It can be worn alone, or layered over a plain underskirt (like the Luna skirt) to create a Victorian feel.  The Cascade pairs particularly nicely with Victoria jackets (as shown in the blue outfit photo).

Variations

These are all individually hand-made, so details like side panels or ruffle fabrics may differ between items, but I always picked them to coordinate.  Black ones can be suede/suiting combos or just suiting (they look the same in pictures).  Photos are shown of major variations.

Fitting

This is a pull-on skirt, so either your chest or your hips needs be smaller than its maximum waist measurement.  I made all of them with some stretch built into the fabric itself, so they’re pretty comfy even when snug. 

Sizing

The measurements given below are for the ACTUAL SKIRT, not for your body, indicating the stretch range of the waist and rough hip measurement about 7 inches below the waist).  You should fall somewhere under the maximum number, but beyond that, how tight or loose you like your skirts is entirely personal preference — you can have 0 inches wearing ease at the hips, or 12 inches, as you wish. 

  • 3XS (waist 24-30 inches, hip 38 inches): black, copper, blue, red (with black side panels), red, brown (with faux suede panel), grey pinstripe
  • XXS (waist 26-32 inches, hip 42 inches): black, copper, blue, brown (with faux suede panel), fine pinstripe, pale beige, red
  • XS (waist 28-34 inches, hip 45 inches): black, blue, grey pinstripe, pale beige, red, brown suiting
  • Small (waist 30-38 inches, hip 48 inches): black (SOLD), copper (SOLD), blue, grey pinstripe, pale beige, red, brown suiting
  • Medium (waist 32-42 inches, hip 52 inches): black, copper (with gold swirl side panels – SOLD), blue (SOLD), grey pinstripe, pale beige, red, brown suiting
  • Large (waist 34-46 inches, hip 56 inches): Black, copper (SOLD), blue (SOLD), red (with black side panels – SOLD), fine pinstripe, pale beige (SOLD), brown suiting
  • XL (waist 38-54 inches; hip 62 inches): black, blue (SOLD), red, fine pinstripe, brown suiting

Cupcake Skirts

PRICE: $19 (+ tax/shipping, originally $95)

Cupcake skirts are adorable, whimsical, and can be worn by themselves or layered over Luna skirts to add layers of complexity.

These are the remains of a prototype run, so no two are exactly alike. 

Some have overlays that extend around the back, while some have plain backs with the overlay only in the front.  The exact black pinstripe fabric will differ from item to item.  Since I only have one per size per colour, you can’t choose unless you’re willing to go to a different size (quite doable, as the waistbands are very flexible).

  • XXS (waist stretches between 24-34 inches): Black, brown pinstripe, red, black pinstripe
  • XS (waist stretches between 28-38 inches): Black, brown pinstripe, red (SOLD), black pinstripe
  • Small (waist stretches between 32-42 inches): Black, brown pinstripe, red, black pinstripe
  • Medium (waist stretches between 34-44 inches): Black, brown pinstripe, red (SOLD), black pinstripe
  • Large (waist stretches between 36-48 inches): Black (SOLD), brown pinstripe, red (SOLD), black pinstripe
  • XL (waist stretches between 40-52 inches): Black, brown pinstripe, red (SOLD), black pinstripe (SOLD)

Dandelion Skirts (only tiny sizes left)

PRICE: $35 (+ tax/shipping, originally $125-145)

Please email me if you want one of these (with your mailing address is I don’t already have it).

The last remaining examples of a prototype design I may or may not keep developing, Dandelion skirts are simple, wearable, and have usefully-sized pockets. 

The pockets are the main feature here, with a curved bound opening and graceful gathers which camouflages any bumpiness that might result from the pocket contents.  The gathers also make the hip fit very forgiving!

I have these in two fabrics, black crinkle cotton and gold silk duppioni.  the black ones have soft black knit waistbands, and the gold ones have brown knit waistbands with a random gold dot pattern.  I pre-washed the silk so you should be able to machine-launder it on delicate!

They’re all prototypes, meaning details can differ between items (such as the pocket binding or the waistband construction, but not so much that you’ll be able to tell if they weren’t side by side.

  • Black Cotton: 3XS (waist stretches between 22 and 32 inches); XS (SOLD 27 -40 inches); XXS (SOLD 25-35 inches)
  • Gold Silk Dupioni: XXS (elastic waist stretches between 23-34 inches), 3XS/Stupidly tiny mannequin size (elastic waist stretches between 20-30 inches)

Lily Skirts

PRICE: $65 (normally $145-155)

The Lily is a full-circle, handkerchief-hemmed skirt with 8 additional full-circle flounces for incomparable swirl factor with no bulk at the waist or hips. 

The soft elastic waistband compresses nicely for wearing under corsets, and is very forgiving. I chose the flounces on each skirt to co-ordinate with the main body fabric; these will differ from skirt to skirt.  No guarantees that any particular flounce fabric will be found on any given skirt!

Remember, you can also wear the Lily skirt pulled up over the bust and belted as a pareo or beachside cover-up.

SIZES:

Note: The Gold shimmer satin is now sold out.

I have one of these in most sizes.  Please order with the size of your hips, waist, or bust, whichever is LARGEST (since these need to pull on, either from below or overhead) and use the name of the fabric as given on the photos to avoid getting the wrong one!

Luna Skirts

PRICE: $48 (+ tax and shipping; regular price $115-135.  This one is below cost of materials for sure). 

The Luna is a half-circle skirt (either cut as a single piece or with multiple panels), meaning there’s no bulk at the waist or hips — but contains a deceptively rich swirl of fabric at the hemline. 

It LOOKS like any old simple, plain skirt, but it’s magically flattering on the body.  Luna skirts are perfect or pairing with a corset if you want to obliterate any suggestion of a tummy bulge!

You can wear Luna with a fitted top for a party dress, with a peasant top for a Renaissance vibe, or layer it under a Cascade skirt with a corset for the full Victorian ensemble. 

Variations

Exact fabrics may differ slightly from item to item, but not so you can tell unless they were side by side.  Lengths are somewhat variable; most of them run between 39-43 inches long, the larger sizes tending longer.  I can shorten them to measure if you need it ($10; or free for Patreon supporters) if you email me your preferred length.

Sizing

If you’re unsure of which size you should pick, please email me with your waist and your chest and/or hip measurements. 

This is a pull-on skirt, so either your chest or your hips needs be smaller than its maximum waist measurement so you can get them on from below or overhead.  Hip measurement is otherwise irrelevant.  The waists are quite stretchy, so the fit is very forgiving.

Maru Skirts

Price: $40 (+ tax and shipping; regular price $85-115). 

The Maru is a full-circle skirt with proper DEEP pockets and a soft wide waistband which you can wear up or folded down in half.

These are all individually hand-made, so the exact fabric used or the waistband material or colour may differ between items (for example, some skirts have matching-colour waistbands while others have contrasting but coordinating ones). 

Photos show some major variations.  Since I pretty much have one of each body colour per size, please only request photos of individual variations if it would be a deciding factor for you.

Plain black ones might be suede, matte satin, or suiting (they all look the same in pictures). 

FITTING: This is a pull-on skirt, so either your chest or your hips needs be smaller than its maximum waistband measurement so you can get them on from below or overhead.  Since they’re full-circle skirts, hip measurement is otherwise irrelevant.

SIZING: Some waistband materials are stretchier than the measurements given below.  If you’re between sizes, you can email me your chest, hip and waist measurement and the colour you want, and I can check which would be the best size for you.
